An update to our CAF Members and CAF RISE ABOVE: WASP Supporters (March 2017)

We are so grateful to CAF members and numerous others who have supported the CAF RISE ABOVE: WASP initiative. Last year we established a fundraising goal of $1.5 million and, so far, we have raised more than $330,000 Thank you!    With your continued support, we will certainly acheive the vision of honoring the legacy of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). Their story will inspire audiences of all ages. 

We are very excited this initiative has gained the momentum it has, but in order to acheive our goal - we have more work to do. Additional fundraising efforts are continuing, including a fundraising luncheon hosted by Chicago’s Leading Edge (the Chicago chapter of WAI) on April 12th.  Please share this information with your friends and family in the Chicago area and invite them to join us.  Click here for more information.   To learn more about the three core concepts of the initiative - INSPIRE, ASPIRE and MENTOR - see below.   More information about this initiative can be found at www.RISEABOVEWASP.org.
