One of the most impactful programs within the CAF, The Restoration Grant Fund, receives much of its annual funding and support through the 12 Planes of Christmas Program. This program was created to help CAF units get their aircraft back into the air faster. Since it was created in 2008, the Restoration Grant Fund has supported the projects and efforts of CAF units all around the nation, becoming one of the most highly valued programs in the organization. Today, the fund has provided more than $1 million in funding – and is a dollar-for-dollar match program, stimulating almost $2 million worth of work on key projects.
Donations of $25 or more to the Restoration Grant Fund will receive a CAF ornament as a thank you for the contribution.
