1999 Wolf Aviation Fund Grant Program Under Way

Seeks Proposals Helping General Aviation

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 5, 1999

Do you or someone you know have a great idea for a general aviation project but don't know how to fund it?  Perhaps your group has a program teaching others about how aviation serves the community, or you know of an innovator with a technology that will make light aircraft safer, quieter, or more fun to fly.

If so, then you should know about the Wolf Aviation Fund!

Last year the Fund awarded grants ranging from five hundred to five thousand dollars to a number of worthy individuals and groups.  "The 1998 Grant Program brought us great ideas and projects, which we were pleased to support," said Dan Wolf, a spokesperson.  "We have taken what we have learned and expanded the program for 1999, both in the maximum dollar amount we might award and in the number of proposals to be funded."

Last year's projects distributed general aviation airport support videos to civic officials, developed classroom materials featuring aviation education, helped pilots learn about post-accident traumatic stress counseling, built a regional general aviation library collection, set up an informational website for an aviation advocacy group, improved another valuable aviation reference website, promoted charitable flying, celebrated the history and technology of aviation before the Wright brothers, and helped start a new youth flight training program.

The Fund also directly commissions special projects, including campaigns providing advice and useful information to those who wish to promote general aviation or improve the public understanding of it.

The fastest and best way to learn about 1999 grants is to visit the Fund's website at
WWW.WOLF-AVIATION.ORG and  read the GRANTS program pages. The website  is dedicated to the promotion and advancement of general aviation.

Guidelines may also be requested via electronic mail sent to MAIL@WOLF-AVIATION.ORG. Postal requests should be mailed to:   Wolf Aviation Fund Grant Administration, 149 Walnut Street, Willimantic, CT 06226.
