The 14th Force Support Squadron provides community service programs that enhance quality of life for active duty military members, retired military members, civilian personnel and their respective family members and dependents. These programs support our mission by boosting morale, productivity and retention.
By partnering with us through our various Commercial Sponsorship Programs, businesses help provide events that educate and instill confidence in our youth, entertain our personnel and promote a sense of community both on and off base.
Unlike other government programs, our regulations permit us to highly advertise and provide sponsor recognition to your company.

COMMERCIAL SPONSORSHIP AND ADVERTISING
Columbus Air Force Base’s Commercial Sponsorship Programs allow businesses to receive promotional exposure in exchange for financial support, product, or services-in-kind to enhance our base events. Opportunities are available throughout the year either on an event-by-event basis or annual sponsorship of our facilities’ programming. Businesses are permitted to engage in promotional activities on bases only under special circumstances and only through Force Support Squadron’s morale, welfare and recreational programming.
Unsolicited sponsorship may be arranged for programs and special events developed by the sponsor and offered to the military as a program to enhance existing morale and welfare programs. Interested businesses may also indicate their interest in sponsoring a future event conducted by the Force Support Squadron.
Interested sponsors can submit unsolicited proposals by calling (662)434-2337.
JUST A FEW OF OUR SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
For several years, we have had a very successful Annual Fitness and Sports Sponsorship Program to offer sponsors year-round exposure through sponsor recognition on sports field ad boards, flags in the gymnasium, sponsor recognition on all media marketing the sponsored events (i.e., annual Blaze Race, Bench Press Competitions,
Softball Tournaments, Golden Tri Sprint Triathlon, etc.).
This program runs on the fiscal year, from 1 Oct to 30 Sep, each year.
We also have year-round opportunities for our Golf Course, the Youth Center
