Thank you for your interest in Compassion Flight and in helping us to help those who are in need. If you live outside of Iowa and the surrounding area, you may wish to direct your donation to a Public Benefit Flying Organization near you; please check our locator page to locate a Public Benefit Flying Organization in your area.
All donations made on this site are appreciated and will cover basic operational costs of Compassion Flight, and will allow us to continue our volunteer operations without having to organize large fund raisers.
Compassion Flight was created by a group of hard-working volunteers who believe in the benefits of volunteering to help others. Today, we are still a 100% volunteer organization operating out of donated offices. There are no paid staff so our expenses are primarily related to computing; communication with pilots, patients and other normal office expenses. We also try to recognize and provide a small reward to volunteer pilots when they arrive at significant volunteering milestones to show our appreciation for their significant contributions.
The pilots that fly our missions are not only donating their time and skills, but they are also donating their airplanes, the fuel and other costs related to flying.
