Grace Spelde, Managing Director, Wings of Mercy

Founded in 1991, for patients who can’t afford to fly, Wings of Mercy is a unique, nonprofit organization providing free air transportation to distant medical centers. 80 percent of all donations go directly toward sustaining the cost of our flights, most of which are fuel expenses. All our pilots are volunteers, generously lending their time and oftentimes their planes to our cause. With minimal staff and low overhead, we coordinate flights to meet appointments, pay for aviation fuel/expenses and raise funds to continue our operations. We are entirely funded by charitable contributions.
