Donations may be made to our general funds or one of our programs.  Note that the full value of all donations directed to our Scholarship programs are awarded directly to recipients.  Currently our programs include:

  • Freedom's Wings ( ) supporting flight experiences for the disabled community.
  • Soaring Scholarships that enable licensed youth glider pilots to continue their soaring flight education.
  • Flight Training Scholarships to provide initial glider pilot flight training towards a glider pilot license.
  • Eagle's Wings Flight School is committed to helping at-risk youth find their passion and chart a pathway to success

To direct your donation to a specific program/club please indicate this with your donation documentation ( e.g.  Freedom's Wings,  Soaring Scholarship, Flight Training Scholarship, Eagle's Wings Flight School).  Donations without such direction will go into our general funds.

All donations over $25 will receive a charitable receipt for tax purposes if the donor supplies name and address information.

Cheques or money orders may be sent directly to our executive director:
