Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Stripes to Bars is a 501(c)(3) public charity that enables qualified veterans to earn Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificates. In doing so, we assist those Veterans transition from military to civilian life, while increasing the pilot population.

Stripes to Bars packages donations from corporate and individual donors into scholarships that are awarded to qualifying Veterans to be used to acquire FAA aviation certificates. Stripes to Bars also assigns aviation mentors to scholarship winners to assist Veterans in navigating the aviation training process.

We are lucky to have active duty and retired National Guard and Reserve Servicemembers in addition to aviation professionals, financial managers and devoted family members as part of our organization. We are excited to use over 90% of donated funds to create aviation scholarships for eligible Veterans, in an effort to smooth their transition to civilian life while simultaneously working to increasing the civilian pilot population.

Stripes to Bars will judge our organizational progress through the number and size of aviation scholarships we are able to provide eligible Veterans each year. Additionally, our progress will be defined further by the ability of our scholarship winners to successfully achieve the aviation certificates they have sought.

During our first two years of existence, Stripes to Bars has been able to award $12,000 in aviation scholarships. The first year resulted in one $2,000 scholarship, which grew to two $5,000 scholarships in our second year.
