Partnering with MAF through special projects and major gifts
Partner with us to transform lives
Major gifts from individuals, charitable trusts and foundations, or corporate supporters, enable MAF to plan and invest for the future, ensuring that vital flights continue to reach the world’s most vulnerable people with help and hope.
If you are considering partnering with MAF in this way, we would love to explore the range of ways we can work together, and the projects available to meet your philanthropic interests and objectives. This includes how MAF can best report back to you on the positive impact your partnership makes to isolated communities.
We tailor our service to meet your individual or organisational needs as a donor, and where possible your relationship with MAF will always be conducted with the same person. This continuity helps to ensure your supporter relationship with MAF is rewarding for you and achieves maximum impact.
When AFD Software (The Postcode People) reached 25 successful years in business, co-directors David & Alison Dorricott and the AFD team marked the milestone with extraordinary generosity…
“Seeking to celebrate and commemorate 25 years of profitable business in 2008, we were thrilled to learn that our success could make a significant difference to the lives of thousands of isolated people, through the purchase of a new MAF Kodiak 100 aircraft. It has gone on to serve people in Indonesia’s Kalimantan province (Borneo) for over 10 years and continues to do so. We are delighted to know that our aircraft enables hundreds of village communities and thousands of individuals to receive help and hope each year.”
“For us, giving MAF a new aircraft has been a truly amazing experience. Our team too are delighted that their hard work and energy has enabled the donation of this aircraft which continues to provide everyday help and assistance to those in such a remote place and have continued to fund other MAF projects every year. We strongly encourage others to consider how we may all be able to help MAF’s vital work in the developing world.”
