Hank Grudberg of Renaissance E.M.S. in the south Bronx applied for a grant to support the planning, integration and implementation of aviation and aerospace programs with the Education, Music, & Sports programs of the school.
Women Take Flight 2011 received Fund support. It was a day-long event at the New England Air Museum bringing extraordinary women involved in aviation and aerospace to share their experiences with Museum visitors, especially young women considering careers in aviation.
These are just a few of the many proposals received last year. They provide a glimpse of the remarkable goals and accomplishments of the grant recipients and the value of their contributions, often as volunteers leading teams of other volunteers in their communities. They all deserve our recognition, support, encouragement, and thanks for working so hard to build the future of aviation.
Proposals often received partial support, because by providing partial funding as challenge grants the recipients then may use the honor and recognition of a Wolf Aviation Fund grant to approach others and seek additional funding. This approach permits more projects to receive grants and has proven quite successful. We encourage all aviation supporters to look for those who have won Wolf Aviation Fund awards and display our logo, and to provide them additional support.
Not all proposals could be funded, thus the Foundation is working to increase the funding available for projects. Your support could help make more projects happen! Please visit the Wolf Aviation Fund website and learn about and help support some of these projects or to set up your own dedicated grant program.

The Wolf Aviation Fund is a 501 C 3 nonprofit foundation which was created thanks to Alfred "Abby" and Constance "Connie" Wolf, who left their estate for the purpose.
