CAP Response Fund
Assistance by Our Members 
for Our Members
Civil Air Patrol members’ rich 76-year history of providing disaster relief and emergency services is second to none. 
Today, you are prepared for another very important national mission — Hurricane Florence damage assessment and humanitarian relief efforts. 

As we work together as ONE CAP to support and assist our fellow Americans, we must also never forget about our own — the 
needs of CAP’s members affected by this storm. 

Hundreds of members of our CAP family are sheltering in place, 
not knowing what they will face when they return home. In 
addition, the ability to buy groceries, cover basic needs such as transportation and lodging, and meet deductibles while insurance 
or federal assistance is processed can be significant. 

I have received calls and emails from many of you asking, “How 
can I help?” 

It is my honor to introduce the “CAP Response Fund,” created
by our members for our members who need help in times of crisis. The fund is also open to squadrons in need of assistance during recovery.

Today, one of our members pledged to match every dollar 
donated to the fund, up to $1,000. This means if you donate
 $10, the fund will receive $20. Donate $25, the response fund receives $50. 

Please consider making a gift today. It’s easy, follow this link
to complete the online donation form. 

One hundred percent of every dollar donated will be used to assist our members who are victims of disaster. 

I am pleased to extend our proud history of genuine caring and compassion for the members of our communities across America
to the members of our own CAP family. Please join me in this 
journey of taking care of our own. 

Warm regards, 
Mark Smith 

P.S. Every donation, large or small, will make a difference in 
the lives of our fellow CAP members. 

Questions?
Please Call CAP’s Development Team at:
833-IAM-4CAP or 833-426-4227 
Prefer to mail a donation by check?

Civil Air Patrol Members To Honor Fallen Service Members at Wreaths Across America Remembrance Ceremony

McChord Field -- Members of Civil Air Patrol’s Washington 
Wing invite the public to sponsor remembrance wreaths for placement on the graves of veterans at Tahoma National Cemetery (Kent, Wash.) on December 15, to honor those who served the U.S. as well as current military members. 

Sponsors can even designate where the wreaths will be laid in the local community. The wing’s efforts coincide with Wreaths Across America tributes occurring simultaneously across the nation, including Arlington National Cemetery, where the initiative began 
23 years ago with the placement of 5,000 wreaths donated by 
Morrell Worcester, owner of Harrington, Maine’s Worcester Wreath Co. In 2006, Worcester and his family formed Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit initiative that recognizes the courage and sacrifices of U.S. veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of the fallen during the year-end holiday season.

As a major partner in Wreaths Across America, CAP has adorned memorials and veterans’ graves with evergreen wreaths to make sure the sacrifices of the nation’s soldiers are not forgotten. 
Donate Wreaths Across America ceremonies are conducted largely by 
CAP wings and squadrons with the help of veterans’ organizations; private citizens; the Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., which annually assists with the laying of wreaths at Arlington; and the Patriot Guard Riders.

Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. 
In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 60,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 25,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs. 
Visit: www.GoCivilAirPatrol.com or www.CAP.news for more information.

Locally, Washington volunteers operate a fleet of 23 vehicles and 14 aircraft (Cessna 172s, 182s, and a 206, as well as 2 
Blanik gliders) for inland search and rescue missions and 
cadet orientation flight instruction. The wing is comprised of 
766 adult members (ages 18+) and 706 cadets (ages 12-21), organized into 27 squadrons, who contributed a value of 
$5.4 million in volunteer hours to their local communities and the citizens of Washington in 2017.

Volunteer Grants / Gift 
Matching Programs & CAP
Employee Volunteer Grants

You can increase the impact of your gift to CAP through an 
employer matching gift program. 
Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees or employees’ spouses to encourage philanthropic 
giving! The matching gift program is great for maximizing your 
dollar, as many employers will match your gift dollar for dollar or 
even triple your gift!

Matching gifts will be allocated to the donor's designation (if requested) unless company policy requires distribution to a 
general fund.

To find out if your employer participates in this program, please 
to your HR department to find out if they have a similar program!

It's almost like getting paid to volunteer!
