Recent Donations

The Delta Pilots Charitable Fund recently surpassed $2,000,000 in donations over the course of 20 years since its inception. This is solely made possible by the generous contributions of the Delta Air Lines pilots…thank you! During this pandemic children all over the country are more in need of support than ever…especially children who typically get the bulk of their nutrition at school. Thus the DPCF is partnering with BlessingsInABackpack.org to provide funding in the amount of $100,000. This will provide nutrition for 25,000 children who face food insecurity both now and after they return to school.

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research :
The DPCF presented a donation of $50,000 to the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research on Monday, December 15, at the Delta MEC offices in Atlanta.

Delta First Officer Joe Houseman, the fund’s chairman, said, “The Delta pilots are a concerned, active, and generous group. On behalf of our pilots, it was our pleasure to help raise these funds for such a worthy cause. Children are the focus of the Charitable Fund’s mission, and our contribution is a step toward easing their way in the world.” Mr. Houseman, other DPCF board members, and members of the Delta MEC will present the check to Dean Crowe, president of the Rally Foundation.

The fund-raising effort included the raffle of two round-trip business-class tickets, which were donated by Delta Air Lines; a golf tournament; and a silent auction at the biennial ALPA Board of Directors meeting held in October. Along with the Delta pilots, the pilots of Hawaiian Airlines and Alaska Airlines also made significant contributions to the fund drive. The DPCF is committed to investing time and money in partnerships with organizations, such as the Rally Foundation, to enrich, strengthen, sustain, and improve the lives of children in our communities.




"Mr. Shannon O'Neal your donation is what saved us last year. The Delta Pilots Funding gave over 50 kids a free summer camp for six weeks. We are talking about kids that lives within East Point Housing Authority (Public Housing)." - Antoinette Simpson, Canei Community Development Consortium Co-Founder
