Be sure to visit the FAAMA Foundation booth at the 39th Annual Gathering of Eagles and Managing the Skies Expo in Henderson, NV from November 3 to 7. We will have complete information about the Foundation and there will be several ways you can support the Foundation at the 2019 FAAMA Convention.
FAAMA Foundation Donations, Sponsorships, and Endowments Are Encouraged
We are seeking donations of items both to raffle and to offer in a silent auction. If you have a hobby, craft, or other items you would like to donate to the Foundation, it will be greatly appreciated. Since the Foundation is a 501c 3 organization, donations may be tax-deductible and donors will be provided with a receipt.
Please bring your donations to the Foundation booth in the Managing the Skies Expo Monday morning. If you are not able to attend the 2019 Convention and would like to donate items, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. There also will be a 50/50 raffle with half of the proceeds going to the winner and half going to the Foundation.
Already, several great items have been donated including a paid registration for the 2020 FAAMA Charity Golf Tournament and a paid registration for the 2020 FAAMA Convention. There also will be information at the booth about sponsoring or endowing a scholarship. If you, your FAAMA Chapter, or your business is interested in this opportunity, please contact email@example.com come by the Foundation booth for details.
