The Heart Behind Sky Ball
The American Airlines Sky Ball is the premier fundraising event for one of the oldest military support organizations in the US, the Airpower Foundation which was formed by the Fort Worth Airpower Council. Sky Ball has allowed the Airpower Foundation to contribute solely to funding projects that directly support the members and families of all branches of our military, veterans and wounded, ill, or injured service members and their families. Last year, Sky Ball raised more than $2.6 million to support our military through contingency funds at the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base and other military support organizations mentioned below.
The Airpower Foundation was founded to be a nationwide 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting active duty, reserve and National Guard families. The direct donations and sponsorships help support the children of our fallen military heroes, projects such as helping amputee and burn survivors transition to civilian life, providing advanced technology “smart” homes to severely wounded service members through our support of the Gary Sinise Foundation, kayak fishing expeditions for physically and emotionally challenged veterans, and so much more.

HELP US SEND
MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES to SKY BALL
American Airlines Sky Ball XV, in support of the Airpower Foundation, is the largest and most impactful military support event in the nation. Hosted inside a transformed American Airlines Hangar at DFW International airport, there simply is no other event in the country that matches the size and scope of American Airlines Sky Ball. We host three days of events honoring our nation’s military and supporting local schools through educational outreach programs. From presenting the Medal of Honor Foundation’s Bob Hope Award Gala, a career expo for veterans and transitioning military members, hosting an aviation expo for students in partnership with DFW International Airport to the Sky Ball Gala, there is something for everyone!
If you can’t attend this year’s event, but still wish to give back to the members of our nation’s military for their sacrifice, you can donate tables in their honor enabling them to take part in Sky Ball XV. If you would also like to donate to the Airpower Foundation to help us fund the projects we put on year-round, you may do so as well. We thank you for your support in helping us to honor our nation’s military and their families.
