A clear need to meet the skyrocketing need due to economic factors has been identified by our board members and the marketplace. Sky King Foundation is uniquely positioned to immediately increase existing capacity of patient transport operations to include many more patients in the Texas Region. We have seen a steady increase in requests for our services over the past three years and we simply do not have the resources to the current demand. To provide some insight as to the need, just one of our coordinating agencies, Grace Flight, had 4,300 requests for transport in 2009. Slightly less than half of those requests were filled at forty-five point eight percent. This unfortunate statistic is multiplied by the number of organizations who are far less successful than Grace Flight in filling missions. It is our desire to raise additional funds to help address this increased need and decrease in participation by other pilots due to the economic downturn.
Sky King Foundation understands that it is not practical to be able to fill the entire gap of missions requested, but we want to make as big a difference as possible. By expanding our Texas operations, we can make the most immediate impact. With a $500,000 grant, we would be able to assist 290 additional patient mission requests and combined with our operational budget, we could cut the number of unfilled Grace Flight missions by half.
 
In providing a more detailed view of the financials associated with the organization in the financial overview section of this document, we will learn that each charitable mission averages 2.4 hours of flight time. The resulting cost per flight is $1,720 with a cost per patient leg of $500. Arriving at the total grant figure the organization took into account a variety of factors; aircraft utilization, crew resource considerations, feasibility of incremental expansion, and need.

Mission:
Sky King Foundation was created to provide no-cost air transportation to rural patients seeking specialized healthcare in urban centers.

It is interesting that the negative "reviews" of this charity focus on a person and do not say anything about the services provided. Elenore Roosevelt said, "Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, and small minds discuss people." While the lawsuit was unfortunate, it is clear the... more »
