MAKE AN IMPACT
The Piedmont Silver Eagles started in 1978 as an organization of Retired Piedmont Airline’s pilots. This group now consists not only of retired pilots, but their widows, and other employees of Piedmont Airlines. In 2002, the Piedmont Silver Eagles Charitable Funds, Inc. was incorporated and is now a 501 (C) (3) tax exempt corporation. The purpose of the Charitable Funds is a way for us to give back to our communities. We have been blessed in our lives to be able to do something we loved and, in addition, to work for a fantastic company. This is our way of saying thanks.
Our hope for the future of the Charitable Funds is to continue to grow and expand! We hope that our current and future scholarship recipients will join the organization with their children and continue to give back, as it's been our pleasure to do for the past 2 decades! Many of our Scholarship recipients have since graduated from aviation training and gone on to do wonderful things with their lives- here are several of our grant recipients, and a bit of information about the wonderful things they are doing for aviation below!
