America First created the Community Assistance Program (CAP) in 1989. Its purpose is to give financial support to organizations that provide job assistance, training, housing, food and medical services to those in need.

Funding for the CAP is provided through member donations. Collection boxes are available for cash donations at each America First location, or you can set up an automatic withdrawal from your account.

Donations can also be given online by submitting your request through the online banking messaging system. Tell us the amount you would like to donate, where you would like the funds withdrawn (i.e. savings, checking etc.), and we will transfer the funds for you. The account number that you will use for the transfer is 7029804, last name: AFCU.

Organizations the CAP supports are:

  • Cathedral of Madeleine Good Samaritan Program
  • Catholic Community Services Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank
  • Child Crisis Arizona
  • Christmas Box International
  • Food & Care Coalition
  • For the Kids
  • God's Garage 
  • Justice for All
  • Lantern House
  • The Road Home
  • Safe Nest Shelter
  • The Society of St. Vincent de Paul
  • Three Square
  • YCC of Northern Utah

Money raised through member donations is given to these organizations. When donations are made to the Community Assistance Program, members can be assured that every penny is dedicated to the disadvantaged in our communities. Nothing is held back or used for administrative or other purposes
