AAFCANS is proud to be a not-for-profit organisation and member of the Australian Defence Force family. Our core aim is to serve this community as best as we can. As such, any additional funds we make go back to Defence and our customers through disbursements, price cuts and facility improvements.
Profits from local vending machines are received by each base’s SADFO in the form of a cheque (usually on a quarterly basis). He/she disburses these funds in a way that best serves their local personnel.
In the 2015/2016 Financial Year, AAFCANS contributed $325,768.89 to the Army and Air Force
through its vending program.
In excess of 280 AAFCANS branded state-of-the-art vending machines are in operation across ADF bases, earning vending monies for welfare funds. Not only does AAFCANS vending program provide members with the latest popular convenience products it also helps to earn big dollars for the bases’ welfare funds. The vending machines offer out-of-hours convenience which is widely appreciated by the base communities that use them. The bases where the sales are generated benefit directly from the vending profits and activities. For the FY 15/16 AAFCANS vending program gave back $325,769 to Defence welfare.
AAFCANS is part of Defence and is a not-for-profit organisation that exists solely for the welfare of Defence Members and has done so since 1915. AAFCANS directly provides amenities and convenience products and services across 27 ADF bases. The money spent at AAFCANS outlets stays within the Defence family and any profits made are channelled into future investment, continuous innovation and improvement to facilities and services for soldiers, airmen & airwomen.
