Give financial support to the Foundation, even if you don’t have the resources now, by designating the Foundation as beneficiary in your IRA or a life insurance policy.
You can make a difference for the Foundation and help it support members of the Colorado Wing CAP long after you have passed away. It’s easy to do, and has a BIG impact.
Remember that all donations are tax deductible in accordance with the IRS under Section 501(c)(3).
The Foundation is a charitable organization separate
from Civil Air Patrol itself.
We are so grateful for your support so we can continue the valuable work that has so positively impacted cadets and adult members throughout the state. As the Foundation increases its grant projections for 2021 and beyond, the need also increases for more support and resources.
The Foundation’s sole purpose is to support the members of the Colorado Wing of Civil Air Patrol, particularly those cadet members who need financial assistance to remain successfully committed to the CAP cadet program.
Help support training and education programs for all members, INCLUDING ONLINE LEARNING such as enhanced search and rescue, color guard, cyber defense competition, ground team, aircrew training, airborne photography, pilot proficiency training, as well as aerospace education training, model rocketry, and grants to attend National Special Activities for members of the Wing.
The Foundation continually seeks sustainable funding year to year. We respectfully ask that you make the most generous donation you can, so the Foundation can continue to broaden its support of the members of the Colorado Wing of Civil Air Patrol.
YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK
In total, the Foundation awards thousands of dollars in grants to members and squadrons of the Colorado Wing Civil Air Patrol. Prior to the Covid-19 shutdown, we reached out to assist members in units and included Quality Cadet Squadrons and AEX awards to units; they stretch to all four corners of the state. In the current pandemic, most in-person events were cancelled. The Foundation supports creation of virtual events as CAP adjusts to the new normal. While there were many recipients, the pictures on this website give you a feel for what is being done and the impact a program like the CAP Foundation has on your local community and the Colorado Wing.
Squadrons apply for and receive grants up to about $500 for Aerospace Education programs, pilot proficiency training, or Cadet Programs that lead to member promotion and retention. Individual cadet and senior members apply for grants to attend training and activities that further their CAP goals and develop their leadership and readiness skills, Such programs range from Cadet Encampment, Hawk Mountain ground team experience, International Air Cadet Exchange, and Powered and Glider Flight Activities.
The Foundation continues its recognition of the Aerospace Education Excellence (AEX) Award Program. Those cadet, composite, or senior squadrons that receive the CAP’s AEX award plaque will also receive a $100 check from the Foundation to support the unit’s Aerospace Education program. Simply send a photocopy of your unit’s AEX award for the current year to the Foundation and receive a check. It’s as simple as that.
FOUNDATION ADDS ITS AWARD TO QUALITY CADET UNIT AWARD RECIPIENTS
The Foundation has added a recognition program for those Colorado Wing cadet and composite squadrons that earn the Quality Cadet Unit Award (QCUA). Colorado Wing squadrons have received a check for $100 from the Foundation for qualifying as a QCUA. This award encourages Colorado squadrons to continue their efforts to achieve and strengthen a vibrant cadet program.
All of these fine young women and men, now serving in Civil Air Patrol, are our future leaders!
NOTEWORTHY INDIVIDUAL DONATIONS
