Advancing Aerospace

For more than 20 years, the AIAA Foundation has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of students and teachers at the K–12 and university levels. Additionally, the generosity of thousands of individual and corporate members has made an impact on the aerospace community through the Foundation’s programming for both students and educators. Donations to the AIAA Foundation are the embodiment of our community’s forward-looking spirit, our desire to continuously grow our community, and our promise to do all we can to help the next generation of aerospace professionals. Your contributions not only provide the critical support necessary for the Foundation’s activities, but also forge a tangible link between current and future members of the aerospace community.

In May 2015, the AIAA Board of Directors approved a matching gift program of one million dollars; a level of giving that we achieved in April 2017. To build on the success of the first program, the matching program was extended with an additional one million dollar match in May 2017. This is yet another example of the Institute’s commitment to increase the Foundation’s resources and enable it to evolve and support new and existing programming.
Let me take a moment to share some recent examples of the impact that the AIAA Foundation has had in shaping the next generation of aerospace professionals.

As the AIAA Foundation Board of Trustees continues to enhance our existing educational programming and spearheads the creation of new programming, your support of the Foundation is more important than ever. Your generosity provides the lifeblood of the Foundation and lays a foundation upon which we will build the future of our community. I hope that I can count on you, as a member, to continue this legacy of giving back. Your support ensures that our community will be advancing aerospace for generations to come.
