Aviation and Charity go Wing in Hand

in Aviation & Charity,Cause Marketing

There are lots of great examples of how general aviation and business aviation support charities.  In fact, some nonprofits couldn’t survive without aviation.

Here’s one recent example of the giving nature of aviation.

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) held their annual convention this month.  One evening featured the Corporate Angel Network Charity Benefit.  $168,000 dollars were raised during the benefit.

The Corporate Angel Network is the only charitable organization in the United States whose sole mission is to “arrange free air transportation for cancer patients traveling to treatment using the empty seats” on business and corporate aircraft.

Business aircraft and the companies that own that aircraft are helping to save lives every day.  Now those are friendly skies.

Visit the Corporate Angel Network website to learn more this great example of a nonprofit partnering with business.
