Your gift allows the Foundation to utilize funds where they are most needed, and supports our educational programs in perpetuity.
A donation to this student competition will provide teams of high school students the opportunity to experience hands-on, real-world programming and flying of small Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). In addition to programming skills, the students learn planning, problem-solving, teamwork, and flight dynamics and the benefits of what this new technology provides.

Endow a Fund
A special perpetual honor, gifts of $100,000 or more may be named for an individual, family or corporation. This is an outstanding opportunity for international recognition and tribute.
