You may not be looking for a grant, but you do want to do everything possible to promote General Aviation and support those who are doing great work in it.
So where do you fit in?
By supporting the Wolf Aviation Fund with a donation or contribution to its endowment!
OR- to find out more, then read on!
Distinguished philanthropists and aviation enthusiasts Alfred "Abby" and Connie Wolf founded the Wolf Aviation Fund in their estates to encourage and foster those having worthwhile projects and efforts enhancing General Aviation. Abby was one of the five founders of AOPA.
Now hundreds of individuals and organizations are doing great work in the seven program areas we support:
In the last fifteen years we have achieved remarkable success in helping worthy people and have provided more than 300 grants for wonderful projects and programs!
The resulting efforts are now inspiring and educating youth, introducing the public to the value and excitement of aviation, fostering innovation, championing our airports, encouraging volunteer pilots flying to help others, and supporting those who are working hard with few resources, defending and building general aviation here and abroad.
In addition, we have worked directly in our program areas, creating informational resources and networks of individuals and organizations who are increasingly contributing to the future of aviation.
The Problem, the Need, and the Opportunity:
Too many great new ideas and programs and too little funding to make them happen!
We receive many more excellent proposals than we can fund. In fact, now we can only provide partial grants to most of the projects we support.
However our grants are highly cost-efficient. We do not try to fully support large, expensive projects. Instead we concentrate on providing seed funds, or the funds necessary to take a worthwhile program to its next stage, or to provide the encouragement and expertise that will allow someone to succeed. And the recipients have been able to cite the honor of receiving a Wolf Aviation Fund grant in order to encourage others to provide additional support.
and we are unique - no one else does what we do!
In the process of building our program we have learned that we are the first and the only nonprofit foundation in aviation that provides the type and variety of grants that are needed to support all the worthy individuals and organizations we help.
that is where you come in.
We are asking you to learn more about our work, to join us in it, and to contribute to its future success and thus the success of those we inspire and support.
The Wolf Aviation Fund is a charitable 501 C 3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization operated as a Private Foundation.

In addition we will work with those who would like to set up a charitable trust or named fund that supports projects and programs in any or all of our program areas.
