The Aviation Community Foundation is an organization that is focused on providing aviation education philanthropy. They teach senior level leadership workshops to bring together leadership teams from selected schools and non-profits, during which they cover critical topics such as: Funding opportunities, Best practice implementation, Board creation and leadership, & Technology. Also, they teach that aviation is all about being hands-on, so they develop and host events for students to have the opportunity to experience unique and educational programs.
About the Program
Aviation education programs are producing outstanding results, in some cases outperform their traditional education counter-parts by leaps and bounds. Many programs are accomplishing successful outcomes with very limited funding. Unfortunately, these programs have no contact with similar programs. They go at it alone. Aviation education comes with a unique set of challenges and educators are left to work through these challenges with no resources, often taking years to solve a problem that has already been solved by another program.
The foundation has traveled across the country to visit over 30 aviation educational programs with a focus at the high school level. While also connecting educators and developing a resource powerhouse, ACF makes flight dreams accessible to thousands of students.
