Elevate Aviation Empowerment Fund
The Empowerment Fund supports the goals and values of Elevate Aviation through fundraising efforts.
Within our community, women seek refuge and respite from abuse on a daily basis. Despite their desire for change, these women often face financial challenges and a lack of support that prevents them from obtaining the education or training needed to secure a successful and fulfilling career. Therefore, all too often, the need to care for a family and themselves, forces these women to return to unsafe situations.
In an effort to help end this cycle of poverty and abuse for the many vulnerable women in our communities, the Empowerment Fund seeks to provide these women with the information and resources needed to consider and obtain a career within the aviation industry. From visiting women in transition and safe houses, to one on one mentoring, women in vulnerable sectors can learn about the careers available to them and have the valuable support of women who work within the aviation field. The Empowerment Fund will also provide much needed financial support in any area of need, which will provide freedom from the financial constraints that all too frequently prevent these women from achieving their career and education goals. The self-esteem and sense of empowerment that is achieved through a successful career is crucial to ending the cycle of abuse and poverty in our society. The Empowerment Fund makes dreams a reality through its mission of elevating women in vulnerable sectors into a career in aviation.
