Wolf Aviation Fund Grants Program
Since 1992 the Wolf Aviation Fund awarded special grants for efforts supporting and promoting general aviation. All grants seeked to fulfill the objectives of the Mission Statement discussed on our home page.
The Fund has been involved in two major methods for achieving its objectives:
1) by directly involving advisors and consultants in specific projects within the program areas and in increasing the informational resources available through the Fund, and
2) by awarding grants which complement this work and support the same objectives.
