At The FLY Foundation, we are driven by our clients’ struggles and the transformational effect our donors’ generosity has on them. Rather than shine a spotlight on our work, we prefer to illuminate the inspiring tales of how your contributions elevate families from the throes of economic and emotional despair. Nevertheless, it is always a tremendous honor to be recognized for our work, and so we are humbled to share this list of awards:
