Mark your calendars for GIVE TO THE MAX DAY

November 15th!

We are happy to announce that we are participating in GiveMN’s Give to the Max Day 24-hour extravaganza of generosity, a statewide fundraising initiative for schools and non-profit organization in Minnesota.

Thursday November 15th is the day to help raise much needed funds Minnesota-based charities and schools, but the good news you can make your donation to the CAF Red Tail Squadron via the Give to the Max campaign anytime between November 1 and November 15.

CAF Red Tail Squadron donors help us keep our RISE ABOVE: Red Tail program up and running, which includes an authentic, fully restored WWII-era P51C Mustang, the signature aircraft of the Tuskegee Airmen; the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit 53’ mobile theater featuring the original panoramic film “Rise Above”; and educational resources for teachers, youth leaders and parents.

To date, more than 250,000 visitors have seen the “Rise Above” movie in the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit and over 130,000 children have received a free inspirational dog tag, featuring the Six Guiding Principles of the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s educational program: Aim High – Believe In Yourself – Use Your Brain – Never Quit – Be Ready to Go – Expect To Win.

We have also distributed over 38,000 educational resources, further expanding the platform to share the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. These are amazing figures and they are because of YOU, our generous supporters!

And of course, your donation to the CAF Red Tail Squadron – a 501(c)(3) charitable organization – is tax-deductible, just in time to include with your 2018 charitable giving tax deductions! Win-win!

Please check out our Give to the Max Day page and consider supporting the CAF Red Tail Squadron. The gift of inspiration is invaluable!

RISE ABOVE!
