How can I donate?

Join our team by donating to help Freedom's Wings Canada fund its flying operations.

Your donations help Freedom's Wings to pay for the tows we need to launch our flights, our insurance costs and to purchase additional aircraft so we can expand our program to other parts of Canada. All of the members of Freedom's Wings Canada are volunteers so you know every dollar that you donate goes to help people with disabilities.
