We are proud to support the following charities and organizations.
Mission Aviation Fellowship
You’ll find MAF in the hardest-to-reach locations, where people live isolated from the rest of the world, cut off from the most basic necessities. Their highly trained pilots maneuver Cessna and KODIAK aircraft through rugged terrain. And while passengers might hold their breath, MAF pilots skillfully land at short, unimproved airstrips on the sides of mountains, in jungle clearings, or on tropical rivers—to bring medicine and doctors, disaster relief, education, evangelists, Bible translators, food supplies, agriculture and clean water projects, and more. They operate a fleet of 53 light aircraft from 15 bases in six countries in Africa, Asia, Eurasia, and Latin America. Their pilots save valuable travel time and cover seemingly impossible distances in minutes or hours compared to days by foot, road, or river. Each year, they fly over two million nautical miles to speed the work of some 600 Christian and humanitarian organizations. MAF flights support indigenous churches and local evangelists, create access to medical care, provide disaster relief, and make community development projects possible … in some of the most remote places on earth. They fly where no one else will. They are invaluable to the people in these remote areas.
Optometry Giving Sight
By raising money though optometrists, optical companies and people who value good vision we have been able to disburse over US$22 million in more than 72 sustainable eye care projects in 38 countries since 2007.
These projects have transformed the lives of tens of thousands of individuals, provided vital support to community education and advocacy activities to raise awareness of the importance of eye health and promoted the role of the Optometrist as primary eye care provider.
These projects have also helped to:
- Provide basic eye care services to over 7.6 million people
- Train more than 14,000 eye care personnel and
- Support the establishment of 133 vision centers.
Special Operations Warrior Foundation
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical, or trade school; and offers family and educational counseling, including in-home tutoring, to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel.
