Tuskegee Airmen Members Play Vital Role in Scholarship Funding

You're Making a Difference!

We are so happy that we can count on you.The Tuskegee Airmen Inc.(TAI) membership response at the 2016 National Convention was outstanding, providing nearly $8,000 in scholarship donations and pledges. This year, the Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation (TASF) wants to top that figure, moving the organization closer to offering scholarships that are more competitive with the rising cost of education. Our leadership team is confident that as we publicize the impact your contributions, individuals and local TAI chapters will become even more enthused about their giving. Some chapters have already made their annual contributions, giving in excess of $1,000. We applaud this effort and encourage chapter-level giving as a complement to individual gifts. Individuals and chapters are encouraged to make their gifts to TASF before or at the convention. Donations made before the convention will be acknowledged on the convention floor by President Bill Robinson during the Foundation's Annual Scholarship Report. You have again helped us award 40 scholarships to amazing students attending stellar educational institutions. Visit the scholarship page to see the names of scholarship winners. Together, we are making it happen. Thank you for your support!

memorial gifts in the name of a Lonely Eagle, make a gift in honor of a serviceman, or set up recurring gifts that are made monthly. Recurring gifts have less economic impact on the donor but result in significant gifts to the Foundation adding up to hundreds of dollars over time.

Memorial Day Campaign Garners Great Response






James A. Harris, Sr,. Lonely Eagle

TASF supporters were quick to respond to the Memorial Day Campaign which provided an opportunity for loved ones to reflect on the tremendous impact of the Tuskegee Airmen. One such memorial gift was made in the name of James A. Harris, Founder and former Pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church, Past President of the National Education Association, an Educator (art and mathematics) for 35 years, and a Tuskegee Airman. His paintings and sculptures are reportedly found all over the United States in churches, businesses and homes.
