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. We are currently suspending our "Series" line of organizational development fundraisers in favor of directing all funds received towards our Cub Cross-Country flight project; we are also looking for donations to make our annual fly-in possible. Please let us know if you are looking for greater flexibility in your charitable gifts.
