The Wings Foundation is a non-profit organization, formed & managed by American Airlines and US Airways Flight Attendants. Volunteers administer support to AA/US Flight Attendants applying for assistance who are in critical need of financial help. Assistance may be available to those experiencing serious illness, injury or disability. It may also include those affected by a disaster or catastrophic event which ultimately causes a major financial hardship.

The Wings Foundation offers justified & verifiable assistance that is strictly governed according to well defined guidelines. We observe all Local, State & Federal laws which apply to non-profit organizations as defined in Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Wings Foundation receives continued support from regular donations, annual bequests & through the recycling efforts of Flight Attendants saving the aluminum cans onboard American Airlines flights. Most notably however, are the funds generated through American Airlines, Inc Flight Attendant payroll deductions.
If you are a Flight Attendant for Legacy American Airlines, Legacy US Airways, or an individual that would like to begin contributing to The Wings Foundation, click on the Donate Now button below.  You can do a one time donation, or set up to contribute monthly.

Disaster Relief Update

2018 is starting off where 2017 ended: Mother Nature has already exhibited catastrophic mudslides in California and extreme freezing temperatures and flooding throughout the rest of the country. Is this a sign of another year heavily impacted by Natural Disasters? While we hope not, myself and the FADR team are prepared to assist our American Airline Flight Attendants.

I just can't thank you

and the Wings Foundation


This is just such a wonderful program and I

truly believe when you

help others that it comes

back in ways you could

never dream could happen!

When I looked at the check I had tears in my eyes due

to the generosity of people helping me that don't even know me! It's just an un-believable feeling that I

would like to help pass on

to someone else in need.

I would be extremely proud

to be part of the

(Wings Warrior) program. Thank you again! I can't

say it enough!"
