American Aero FTW, a fixed-base operator (FBO) located at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas, said it presented a USD20,000 check to the Navy SEAL Foundation at the NBAA 2015 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Las Vegas on November 17, doubling the contribution made at the convention last year.
The Navy SEAL Foundation provides critical support to the Naval Special Warfare Community and its families during times of illness, injury and loss.
The donation is part of American Aero FTW´s ongoing support for the Navy SEAL Foundation and other charitable organizations. The FBO´s “Red, White and Blue” program enables customers to contribute 10 cents from every gallon of fuel purchased to the Navy SEAL Foundation, and American Aero FTW matches those donations dollar for dollar.
Navy SEAL Foundation CEO Robin King said the nonprofit is committed to the well-being of the US Navy SEAL community and aligns itself with patriotic businesses that demonstrate equal integrity and concern.
“The generosity of American Aero FTW´s leadership and its clientele is a sure sign of their commitment to our nation´s elite warriors and their families,” King said. “It is truly an honor to have a business like American Aero FTW seek out the foundation to support it financially, promote it to customers, and recognize it during NBAA.”
The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax exempt, national, non-profit benevolent organization headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA.
