Where will your dollars go?

The BettyFlies Foundation has pledged $100,000 to the Aspen Flight Academy’s “Every Student Flies” program, which will debut at the Aspen High School in the fall of 2019.

BettyFlies has also committed to fund $120,000 of flight-school scholarships for high-school students, commencing August 15, 2019. These scholarships will be geared towards students who are on track to build careers as professional pilots.

A general collegiate scholarship at the Aspen High School—in the amount of $30,000 or better—is also planned for the upcoming 2019-20 school year.

Every dollar donated will fund aviation-inspired endeavors that encourage young people to develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Please help us reach our funding goal of $250,000.00! We greatly appreciate any contribution, no matter how large or small. We face a short timeline and—much like Betty in her many enterprises—have lofty aspirations. 

Every dollar counts!
