The Ray Foundation, Inc. supports educational organizations whose programs develop life skills such as self-discipline, self-confidence and ownership of one’s own decisions. The skills that are developed during flight training can enable students to achieve success throughout their life.
James C. Ray and his wife, Joan, founded the Ray Foundation, Inc. in 1963. Their faith in the strength of our country rests in the belief that youth equipped with strong life skills, combined with talent and energy, will be the leaders of tomorrow.
The Ray Foundation, Inc. strives to fund grants to organizations with a focus on aviation that give the youth of America the opportunity to develop the life skills and drive for success that were instilled in our founder during his US Army Air Corps training.
