The Mountain Air Pilots Association operates in compliance with IRS Code Section 501(c)3 which requires that most funds raised to be used for charitable purposes. This code also enables most contributions to MAPA to be deductible for tax purposes by donors.
Prior Charitable Donations
Donations were made in past years to various local charities such as Mitchell-Yancey Habitat for Humanity, Humane Society, Cal & Carol Peddy Memorial Foundation, and many other charities in addition to providing several $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at Mountain Heritage High School.
The largest MAPA fund-raiser each year is the Airway-Fairway Golf Tournament held the third Saturday of September. This is always generously supported by MAPA pilots and many other residents and guests of Mountain Air.
