Welcome to the LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation! We have another great year with more exciting plans coming up in the near future. One of our goals is always to spread the word of the foundation, not only to potential donors, but also to young men and women who apply for our scholarships. The more applications we receive, the bigger the pool of top applicants to choose from. And if you applied this past year, you may have been one of our top choices, so don't give up - reapply! An additional year can add a lot of substance to an application.
Now this year, in light of all the challenges going around, we have decided to do one of our own - no ice water involved, we promise. In order for more people to become familiar with the Foundation, we are challenging our 16 scholarship recipients to "TELL TEN!" TELL TEN means that you will tell ten people about the foundation. I am also challenging our board members and volunteers to do the same.
We are thankful for the support we have received from individual donors, employee matching programs, and this year we received tremendous support from the pilots with our "Just a Buck" program!
We continue our mission "to support and encourage young adults who wish to become professional pilots" and are proud of our past recipients who have given back by mentoring other aspiring aviators. We also provide educational opportunities to present aviation as a career choice, through targeting disadvantaged youth.
So please continue to stay in touch! Sign up to receive our blog postings, or visit us on Facebook. If you would like to receive our newsletter, give us a call or email us, to be put on our mailing list. Upcoming events will be listed on our website, as well as on our Facebook page. If you would like to be more involved, we are always looking for volunteers, especially if you have been involved in non-profit work before. Thank you for continuing to support us!
