Donate to Pilots for Pilots with the 717 Club Campaign

Hurricanes. Wildfires. Floods. These and other widespread disasters can bring destruction and devastation. If one of them hits you, it can be overwhelming. You'll have to deal with FEMA, property insurance, long waits, and of course the emotional burdens that come with any disaster.

If you do, however, P4P is there to help. ALPA's Pilots4Pilots (P4P) Fund—our emergency relief fund—is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity created solely for ALPA members and their dependents that covers the immediate, extraordinary expenses that follow widespread, catastrophic events and helps expedite the recovery process, allowing ALPA families to return their lives to some semblance of normalcy.

But for ALPA to help, we need your help. So we're asking you to join the "717 Club" and donate $7 in '17—or $77 or even $777—to help your colleagues in need.


We've set a goal of $40,000 and we'll share our progress throughout the summer, so please donate and encourage your ALPA colleagues to do the same. We're all just a disaster away from needing Pilots4Pilots. Donate today!

What Can P4P Do?

       

 

The fund’s tax-exempt status is dependent on remaining within the IRS guidelines, which are specific in regards to eligibility. The guidelines limit P4P disbursement of the funds to individuals who suffer from a widespread disaster.

To ensure that you meet P4P criteria, please carefully review the fund guidelines, which explain the conditions that constitute an applicable disaster and the fund’s IRS classification.
