General LeMay began the Foundation with a $75,000 private donation to be used in any way he desired. General LeMay elected to use it to help officers' widows needing financial assistance. Today, we provide aid to both Enlisted and Officers' spouses.
     We are one of the four official charities of the U.S. Air Force and is an affiliate of  the                                                                . Most of our donations come from Active Duty Air Force. Our Retirees also help benefit these spouses.          Private donations are graciously accepted and will be used prudently. We appreciate your support of these patriotic men and women who served alongside their spouses.  We strongly encourage all donations to the LeMay Foundation and your donations are tax deductible.

    “When life takes a toll and especially takes your spouse who has served his or her county in the Air Force, and you are left with little or no means of support, there is the LeMay Foundation who was organized to assist widows in their time of need. The Organization was recommended to us after our mom’s husband passed suddenly and her needs were immediate and significant, especially since her health was declining. As a grateful recipient of those benevolent financial funds, mom would be the first to refer another widow to seek assistance. The level of care she has received since 2010 has been what has sustained her to the age of 95, despite having Alzheimer’s disease and requiring care 24/7. The LeMay Foundation was and is an answer to prayer.” Rebecca A., Daughter of Mrs. Billie H. Rebecca A., Daughter of Mrs. Billie H.
