At its inaugural Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards on August 1, D CEO magazine named Angel Flight South Central its Organization of the Year in the Micro Organization category.
D CEO applauded Angel Flight South Central for flying more than 32,000 missions since its founding in 1991, and for its volunteer pilots who donate their time and money to fly people for medical and humanitarian purposes.
While AFSC has thousands of volunteers and flies thousands of missions a year, it was classified as a Micro Organization in this awards competition because of its small operational budget. Since flight costs are borne entirely by the volunteer pilots, the nonprofit's operational costs are relatively low.
Fresh from his very successful fundraising trip to the North Pole, AFSC treasurer Wayne Maynard accepted the award on behalf of the organization.
