Help Pilot Families in NeedThe ALPA Emergency Relief Fund, or Pilots for Pilots (P4P), deserves a high five! In the 10 years that P4P has been available, hundreds of ALPA members and their families have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in fast financial assistance following the devastating effects of widespread disasters.
P4P is there when you need it most, but the fund is a charitable organization that relies on donations and needs your help. To ensure that it remains properly funded and available, we’re asking every ALPA pilot from June until August 2015 to donate at least $5 to this worthy cause. If every member were to participate, we could add more than $250,000 to our reserves.
For about the cost of a large cup of specialty coffee, you can help P4P meet the immediate needs of pilot families affected by hurricanes, wildfires, flooding, earthquakes, and other cataclysmic events. At the end of the summer, we will tally the totals.
Just "Give me $5" to help keep Pilots for Pilots alive. It’s a small price to pay for a special member resource that has meant so much to so many.
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.
