bill-shepard-with-a-special-group-of-children-from-vectren-dayton-oh-they-liked-the-movie-so-much-that-they-came-back-a-second-timeAs a 501(c)(3) organization, the CAF Red Tail Squadron is able to spread the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen to people around the country because of the generous support of people like YOU. We don’t receive government funding or endowments from corporations or charities. Rather, we work hard to raise the funds we need from our donors and supporters to keep our mission vibrant and alive in communities like yours.

Did you know you can easily and simply provide ongoing support to honor the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen? Making a one-time gift is an exceptional act of kindness and generosity, but signing up for a recurring donation can ensure your support stays with us as long as and at what frequency you would like!

There are a couple of ways to make a recurring donation. Would one of these avenues make sense for you, your budget and your passion for the Tuskegee Airmen and the CAF Red Tail Squadron?

Option #1 – Become and Annual Sponsor

This $99 annual donation pays homage to the 99th Fighter Squadron, the first all-black squadron of its kind in military history. Sign up online or call us at (888) 928-0188 and receive an official CAF Red Tail Squadron sponsor hat so you can proudly show your support and help spread the word. You even have the option of automatically renewing your annual sponsorship so you don’t have to lift another finger!

Option #2 – Choose your own flexible option

Select ANY amount that works for you, and determine a frequency to make a recurring donation at our online donation portal. You can choose to make your donation to the CAF Red Tail Squadron weekly, every two weeks, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. And of course, you can modify or cancel your recurring donation at any time.

Our staff and volunteers have tried to make supporting the mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron both easy and flexible. By following our website, blog, newsletter and Facebook page, you can see our mission in action, and your gift hard at work.

Join us as we bring the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen to people of all ages across this country, and celebrate with us as we see the positive influence these fine American heroes have had, and will have for generations to come.



The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at
