Our Mission

The Spirit Charitable Foundation believes change starts by giving back. We are committed to inspiring positive change in the communities where we live and work. We invest in organizations that have a meaningful social impact on the lives of Children and Families, Service Members and the Environment, through Team Member volunteerism, monetary, and in-kind donations.

Our Generous Donors Gave More Than $1.5 million

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, the 2022 Spirit Open and our Evening Off The Runway events raised over $1.5 million dollars. Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, NextGen Aero and Champion Sponsor, Airbus.

The festivities kicked off with hundreds of Spirit Team Members, partners and sponsors attending “An Evening Off The Runway” reception at the Sheltair’s world class aircraft hangar at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The following day, Spirit Team Members, aviation industry professionals and community leaders hit the links at The Club at Weston Hills. It was a great way to celebrate the impact their donations to the Spirit Charitable Foundation will have to the many organizations supporting children and families, service members and the environment throughout the U.S., Latin America and Caribbean. We’re incredibly grateful for the continued support of our partners, whose generosity and giving spirit help make a meaningful difference in the communities where we live and work.



Our community support is directed by our three key pillars:

Children and Families

Every child should have a bright future, which is why we support and volunteer with organizations that focus on developing our next generation. Our efforts improve children's lives and their future opportunities to learn and grow and become successful members of their communities.

Service Members

We are committed to supporting our first responders and those who have served our country. Alongside local organizations, we help past and current Service Members reconnect with loved ones, receive education, and start new careers. We're proud to support those who have supported us!

The Environment

We fly one of the youngest and most fuel efficient fleets in the U.S. and support organizations who believe in sustainable solutions that are positively contributing to the vitality of our planet. We invest in products and resources that help minimize the carbon footprint in the environment that we all share.
