As Cadets of Washington 
Wing; Did you know that you are eligible for a scholarship through the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation (CCLF)?
------    -------------------------------------------     --     --------- - - --------       --------   ---- - ----
 CCLF offers scholarships to hardworking and dedicated CAP cadets who would like financial help to attend leadership focused CAP activities. 

 If you are attending a leadership  related National Cadet  Special Activity or encampment this summer (or any leadership activity at any time of the year for that   matter), the CCLF may grant you a scholarship for a   percentage of the activity cost.  
The application process is extremely simple, and more often 
than not, the CCLF will graciously provide a scholarship. Personally, I have applied for a scholarship through CCLF 
more than once, and was blessed with a scholarship each time.

  If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to help fund
 a leadership focused cadet activity that you are attending this summer, check out the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation website. If you have any questions about CCLF scholarships, please feel free to contact me.   110% in All We Do!

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!

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.
