About the AFNA Foundation, Inc.

The AFNA (Association of Federal Narcotics Agents) Foundation Inc. was founded in 2017 as a 501c (3) nonprofit organization. The AFNA Foundation is the charitable wing of AFNA that exists to provide aid and assistance to members of AFNA, DEA, DEA Task Force Officers and their families. The Foundation can provide financial assistance during times of hardship as the result of natural disasters, illness, and bereavement leaving dependents in financial need. We help with medical expenses and travel expenses for families with medical hardship. In addition, we provide educational scholarships for AFNA members and their families.

Some examples of charitable causes that AFNA, and the AFNA Foundation have supported since 2017 include awarding scholarships, providing hurricane relief, death benefits, and assistance with medical bills. Visit our Charitable Causes page for more information.

Instead they are private 501(c)(8) and 501(c)(3) fraternal and charitable organizations that develop, promote and preserve goodwill and friendship among former narcotics agents and other DEA personnel. Neither the DOJ nor the DEA approve, endorse or authorize their materials or fundraising efforts.

To AFNA members:

This past weekend I passed the AFNA Presidency to Larry McElynn who will be your President for the next two years and I move on to become the President of the AFNA Foundation. I want to thank all of you for your past support. I believe that I have increased AFNA’s recognition with DEA (even though we had a rocky start) and within the law enforcement community. This past weekend we had a great conference in San Antonio with the presence of Administrator Dhillon and representatives from Headquarters who were very supportive of our efforts. I may not have had the support of the entire AFNA community at times but every decision and action I have taken has been in the interest of AFNA’s mission and goals.I know under President McElynn we will continue to grow and become even more active as an organization.

I now take over the AFNA Foundation which will need the support of every member if we are to continue to provide support to our members and the DEA community in the event of a catastrophic event. The foundation now has its own website. I encourage you to take a look at the site and donate to help me make it grow.

Again my thanks to all for the support.
