Civil Air Patrol Foundation promotes and supports Civil Air Patrol by providing direct funding to CAP and its programs, missions, and operations, including strengthening squadrons and wings and providing scholarships for cadets and aerospace education.
The foundation also helps donors leave a legacy and a lasting impact in supporting volunteers serving America’s communities, saving lives, and shaping futures.
Our staff supports this work by providing education regarding estate planning and working with alumni, members, and donors who want to include Civil Air Patrol in their wills and other planning documents, including life insurance policies and retirement accounts.
We also work with donors and their advisers on comprehensive financial and estate plans that will benefit the donor and the donor’s family, descendants (if applicable), and preferred charities.
All consultations with donors and potential donors are confidential, without a fee or a charge, and without obligation in any form.
In addition to this webpage, we maintain a website and a quarterly e-newsletter for our donors, members, alumni. and friends. To sign up, click here
We also are available for workshops and presentations about charitable gift planning, estate planning, legacy planning, and related topics.
