Scholarship Benefactors

Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame (WAHF) has been able to not only provide two annual scholarships to date but, we have reached 75% of our first endowment goal. Each $1000 annual scholarship needs a $20,000 balance to be endowed. The ultimate goal for our scholarship program is to provide a total of four annual scholarships, one to each of the four Wisconsin technical colleges providing an aviation program. We can make it happen with your help. Remember, the WAHF is a 501(c)(3) organization and as such any donations you make are tax-deductible. Please consider making a donation and when you do use this donation form .

Donations may be anonymous or may be made in memorial to someone special to you. Donations in any amount will help us reach our goal and will provide for an even better future for aviation. Thank you for your consideration and your generosity!
