Deadline Nears For Wolf Aviation Fund Grants
Have an idea to promote aviation safety, education, or GA airports? The Wolf Aviation Fund wants to hear about it, and they have small-scale grants available to help support your endeavor. The process is fairly informal, and the deadline is Dec. 15. Proposals are welcome from individuals and nonprofit groups. More than 100 projects have received funding in the last few years. Last year, the fund supported about 40 projects, including organization of the first-ever national Leadership Conference for Aviation and Space Education; production of a video that promotes Idaho's wilderness airstrips; two safety projects for volunteer pilot organizations; and a new Girl Scouts program that works with Women in Aviation International to encourage young women to get involved in aviation. The Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf Aviation Fund was created to help individuals work together in support of general aviation. The fund's seven main program areas are -- developing public policy and airports; networking and mutual support; development and alternative resources; communications, media, and community relations; general aviation technology, safety, and noise; outreach: improving public understanding and perception; and aviation and space education. Grants have been distributed since 1992.
