Alton Aviation Consultancy Announces Successful Matching Fundraising Campaign in Support of Airlink and Its Humanitarian Missions in Ukraine
NEW YORK (July 12, 2022) — Alton Aviation Consultancy, the global aviation advisory firm, is pleased to announce the results of its fundraising campaign for Airlink, the rapid-response humanitarian relief organization, to support Ukrainian refugees.
With sincere thanks and appreciation for the generosity of many, Alton Aviation Consultancy’s matching donation campaign raised $60,384.58. To that amount, Alton has added a $100,000 contribution for a total of $160,384.58.
While we’re pleased to share the success of the fundraising campaign, we recognize the work that Airlink had undertaken in and around Ukraine is far more important. Airlink has supported more than 20 relief organizations with airlift and logistics needs, delivering critical aid and responders to those affected by the ongoing war. Airlink has published a report outlining support during the first three months, available from its website.
Adam Cowburn, co-founder and Managing Director of Alton, says: “Social responsibility has been core to our business values since the founding of Alton, and we are proud to provide our support to Airlink. Following the invasion of Ukraine, the need has perhaps never been more acute, and we’re appreciative that other like-minded individuals and companies have joined us and Airlink on this important mission.”
To donate towards Airlink’s humanitarian mission in Ukraine.
