Setting Our Sights Higher

Since 1850, we’ve challenged the status quo. Now we’re charting our boldest trajectory yet: to raise $400 million by 2025 through a culture of philanthropy. For greater access to scholarships, academic excellence and hands-on learning opportunities — for all Flyers. We’re calling on you to help our community not just fly, but soar!
