This Giving Season, let’s unite and empower future aviation professionals!
The ISTAT Foundation is proud to be a leading provider of learning and development opportunities for the next generation of aviation leaders.
With the support of the ISTAT community and corporate and individual donors, the Foundation is changing lives across the globe.
While the ISTAT Foundation is grateful for the continued partnership and substantial support from ISTAT, it relies on supplemental funding to sustain and grow its efforts.
The need for program growth continues as nearly US$2 million was requested in 2022 through the various giving programs, and the Foundation only had the capacity to support fewer than half of the requests received.
Donate today to help us maximize our impact worldwide!
