ISTAT Foundation Humanitarian Aid Program
The ISTAT Foundation Humanitarian Aid Program showcases how the aviation community can join together to aid those in need. The program is administered by the Humanitarian Committee of the ISTAT Foundation Board of Trustees. The Foundation supports humanitarian causes that are designed to help save lives, promote human welfare and alleviate suffering. Our focus is on restoring the basic necessities and improving the well-being of those in need as a result of global disasters and/or afflictions.
In addition, the ISTAT Foundation collaborates with and supports nongovernmental, not-for-profit organizations that provide air transportation for patients that have critical needs for medical treatment and cargo that is necessary to support humanitarian causes.
How to Apply
The committee is no longer accepting applications for 2017. More information on 2018 humanitarian grants will be available on our website in the first quarter of 2018.
