The Keesler Spouses' Club (KSC) is a volunteer run, non-profit, all ranks, spouses group at Keesler Air Force Base. We are a club with a heart dedicated to giving back to fellow spouses, our Airman and our local community.
The KSC has two primary goals. 1) Making Keesler feel a little more like home. We understand that making new friends and feeling a sense of belonging to your new military community can be challenging, The KSC provides a variety of opportunities to connect with one another and have fun. Our events have included lunches, evening dinners/wine pairings, Bunco with prizes, holiday parties, game nights, visiting local attractions and more. See the Up-coming Events sections for more information.
2) Giving back. We help support charitable endeavors in our base community, as well as the communities surrounding Keesler. Through revenue from our Thrift Shop on base, our annual auction and other smaller fundraisers, the KSC was able to donate more than $21,000 to various base and local community organizations. Additionally, the KSC gave $48,500 in college scholarships to high-school seniors and military spouses last year. To find out more about available scholarships, please visit our Scholarships Page.
