    Reach your business goals

    Our Mission

    Keesler Air Force Base is home to the second largest training command in the world and is composed of Active Duty Military and Department of Defense (DoD) civilians working together to support combat ready operations. Partnering with Keesler Air Force Base offers a simple and effective way to access this exclusive local military community of over 40,000 active duty, training students, reservists, DoD civilians, military retirees, and their families. Becoming a partner sponsor or advertiser is a great way to promote your business, your brand, and develop lasting relationships with military members and their families. Keesler Air Force Base graduates over 27,000 students every year - there is no better time to gain brand loyalty than to service members fresh out of boot camp.

    At Keesler Air Force Base, we value the partnership and support of the local community. We support local businesses and organizations by helping create awareness and driving customers your way. Your support helps to enhance our airmen's quality of life while at Keesler Air Force Base.

    We have sponsorship opportunities available throughout the year and range in size and scope. We offer events at our club, golf course, fitness centers, youth center, bowling center, information, ticket & travel office, and outdoor recreation. 

    Commercial sponsorship is an exchange of value between our 81st Force Support Squadron and civilian business whereby the support sets or enhances the budget for an activity, event, or program. Businesses receive promotional consideration and direct access to our keesler's military market. Support may be in the form of cache, in-kind, gifts and donations. 100% of the funds received through the Commercial Sponsorship program go directly into the Morale Welfare & Recreation fund that provides special events and programs for the Keesler Community.
