McDonald Racer Crew Charity Efforts

As members of the McDonald Racer Crew, we have taken part in fundraising,volunteering, and/or promoting a number of different non-profit organizations through out the years.  Although we’ve recently targeted our philanthropic goals towards encouraging children interested in aviation, we’ve also enjoyed supporting organizations that work to support the aviation community as a whole.

Through out our years of racing, we’ve been extremely fortunate to have support from amazing fans (like you!) as well as mass media interest in our team. As a crew, we try our best to leverage this influence in favor of a number of non-profit organizations.  As we survive off of sponsorships ourselves, we unfortunately cannot offer funds to these outstanding non-profit organizations.  Instead we do our best to raise awareness for their causes, and if we are fortunate to have external sponsorship backing, we enjoy donating rides in the McDonald Racer to raise money.  Below is a list of our past charity efforts.
