NAMPA, Idaho — April 11, 2013 — Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is one of 15 nonprofit organizations named as finalists for a grant from the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation. Lightspeed made the announcement today at the SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Florida.
“We are honored to have been selected as a finalist once again,” said John Boyd, MAF president and CEO. “This is an exciting opportunity for MAF, and we are grateful to Lightspeed for its ongoing support of those who use aviation to do good.”
The 15 finalists were chosen from hundreds nominated. Final grant recipients will be selected by aviation enthusiasts who vote online at www.lightspeedaviationfoundation.org.
