Review of 2018 and Our Plan for 2019


Thank you for your support of the SandraFoundation, providing scholarships and mentoring to deserving students! 

2018 was a productive year for us: 

• We truly enjoyed partnering with the Air Force Junior ROTC where together, we raised $6,200 in SandraFoundation Cadet Scholarship funds for deserving ROTC cadets. 

•We partnered with the CCPS, A Failure 2 Communicate Mentoring Program and various industry leaders who who helped mentor more than two hundred high school students to career and job opportunities. The results from these endeavors are still creating fruit today. 

Looking ahead in 2019: 

• I'm honored to welcome Yonairis Smith to the team as the Director of the Naomi Blake Family Legacy Scholarship.  

• Captain Jimmy Gracia, a dear friend and partner of ours will direct our 2020 NYC SandraFoundation Cadet Scholarship Drill Competition. 

•The SandraFoundation Professional Pilot Scholarship will sponsor ten deserving student pilot discovery flights. We will also mentor and help train these future recipients into professional pilot careers. 

•We are looking to grow our fundraising and career coach mentoring teams as we prepare for future scholarships.  

There is so much being planned for another great year.  Keep checking in as we have more announcements to make soon!

With your donation and support, together, we will continue to make a positive difference, one student at a time! 

In Unity,
