Portland, OR. The 30th annual Oregon International Air Show will take place September 22nd – 24th and a portion of the money made will be given to local nonprofits. One of missions of the air show is to give back to the community and there’s still time to apply for one of the organization’s grants. In 2017, organizers gave 30 different organizations a total of $54,850. Since 1988, more than $2.1 million has been donated to the community and over six hundred different projects have been supported. The deadline for this year’s application is September 30th.  Click here for a link: Grant Application.

The Air Show offers grants of up to $5000.00 per request. Award amounts are contingent on the overall financial success of the Air Show. The goal of the awards committee is to disperse all awarded grants in January/February of 2018.
