Review for Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund, Lakewood, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I am proud to be affiliated with one of the few 9/11 Charities based in Colorado; the Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund. Jason lived in Littleton and was the pilot of United Flight 93 which crashed in Shanksville, PA that day. To honor his memory, this fund was established to help future generations share his passion for flying. We have established aviation scholarship programs at Metro State in Denver and San Jose State, his Alma Mater. We recently expanded to award scholarships for aviation programs across the country.

Our board does not take any compensation and we have no paid employees. Any travel or entertainment expenses are paid by board members. Monies raised go to fund scholarships and we proudly retain a Tax Exempt charity status.
