Between maintaining an active website, funding national projects and local chapter programs, and making an articulate case to airports, organizations, and prospective members around the country, Young Pilots USA has significant costs. Please contribute to support our mission here by making a restricted gift to the Tunison Foundation.
Thanks to the contributions of internal donors, our Series I funding round was completed in January 2021. This funds our online presence and fundraising efforts.
The Coast-to-Coast Cub project and the Goodspeed Fly-In, both major programs for Young Pilots USA, successfully raised funds and awareness for us and programs we care about.
We expect to introduce a Series II funding round before the end of our fiscal year at the end of September 2021.
