THANK YOU FOR GETING INVOLVED & MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!
The FAC Education Foundation was established to assist students pursuing careers in aviation; promote the advancement of the aviation profession; and support aviation education, research, and training. The Foundation is only able to achieve these goals through its fundraising efforts and financial grant opportunities.
Please consider making a financial contribution, donating a raffle prize or an item for one of our auctions. Participate in our annual Virtual Fun Run or in-person Fun Run, Live/Silent Auctions or other FAC-sponsored fund-raising events.
Raffles and Auctions
Raffles - Throughout the year, the Foundation facilitates a number of raffles at two conference events, the Education & Training Summit (in the spring) and the Annual Conference (in the summer).
The FAC Education Committee seeks gifts to offer to delegates and guests attending these events. Past prizes include vacation/hotel packages, flying lessons, collectables, artwork, electronics, field gear and more.
The 2023 theme for the Education & Training Summit and the Annual Conference is “The Sky’s the Limit”. The E & T will be held in Melbourne Florida, April 11 – 13, 2023. The Annual Conference is scheduled for July 23-26, 2023 in West Palm Beach.

Auctions – Each year at the Annual Conference the Education Committee sponsors a Silent Auction and a Live Auction.
