The Mission of Giving to Fly
Giving To Fly is a 501(c)3 non-profit giving amputees grants for airfare to camps, clinics, or trainings that enrich their lives physically, emotionally, or socially. Our mission is to make flight not a factor for amputees and their families.
We love being involved in the community and giving back to the kids, that is our passion.
Below are some recent photos of the happenings of Giving To Fly out-and-about in the community.

Flight Night is the fundraising vehicle for Giving To Fly, a non-profit organization that provides airfare to amputee children and their families so that they can attend camps, clinics, and trainings nationwide that would otherwise not be available to them. Giving to Fly makes flight not a factor.
Giving to Fly's impact has been felt greatly throughout the amputee community. Over the first four years Giving to Fly has raised over $150k & have gifted 280 flights to children and their families nationwide. Giving to Fly's Founder, Jenna Powell, works tirelessly with organizations, prostitists and other support groups within the amputee community to foster the ideology that "together we can accomplish more for our amputee children and families".
