The Ray Foundation Million Dollar Challenge


Donors, through the EAA Aviation Foundation, fuel EAA's mission-critical education, safety, and outreach programs. These programs impact more than 760,000 people each year!

With the help of generous donors, our goal of $1 million has been reached. Those donations will be matched by the Ray Foundation, bringing the total to $2 million in support for our education, safety, and outreach programs!

For EAA and the EAA Aviation Foundation, he was noted for funding the construction of the Air Academy Lodge and propelling the vision for the Air Academy program. His foundation has continued that leadership through the funding of the Ray Aviation Scholars program and Project 21.
