You can make a difference, too!

The Air Care Alliance is largely supported through contributions from the public, grants, and the dues and contributions provided by the ACA Member organizations. Our Members are Public Benefit Flying Organizations whose leaders believe that those who need help and the volunteer pilots who wish to provide that help are best served by groups working together in mutual support. Our board members also contribute immensely of their time and provide in-kind support from their own groups.

In addition ACA has received contributions from individuals believing in our work and from other public support, including a significant grant from the Wolf Aviation Fund in1996, and more recent support for our national Air Care conference from sponsors, and for the National Public Benefit Flying Awards in the U. S. Capitol Building from the Freedom Foundation, the Ken Cook Company. and Karen and Rick Durden.

Recently the AOPA Foundation provided ACA a Giving Back grant which will greatly enhance our operations and outreach efforts. And our website received significant funding from Operation Angel Planes and the St. Peters Family.

Some firms and other entities provide support to us and the groups and pilots we serve in other ways. For instance Signature Flight Support and other FBO’s and major airport operating authorities provide the pilots discounted fuel and free or discounted parking, and often waive landing and other fees, when a pilot is flying a mission of mercy. Flight Explorer provides the groups free flight tracking services.

If you would like to support our work or make a donation, note that we are a tax exempt 501 C 3 charitable organization and are listed on Guidestar. In most cases donations to us are tax-deductible. You may donate directly to us using the button below. Our Tax ID number and EIN is 95-4371720.

AND – please also consider providing your generous support to one or more of the many nonprofit groups we list and serve! Their volunteer pilots do the lion’s share of the work, flying patients and performing other missions of service at no cost to the recipients. But each group will also have costs for referral phones, websites, staff, and many other needs. Find a group and lend them a hand too, by learning about them using their links on our Directory of Groups.

We very much appreciate your support and encourage you to contribute to our mission and projects on behalf of all volunteer pilots and their groups.
