Our mission cannot succeed without the continued generous support of time, talents and donations from the greater Syracuse private community. Honor Flight accepts no government funding, nor partisan political sponsorships. We do seek the support of individuals and corporate partners, even as we develop broad community fundraising programs with organizations such as American Legion and VFW Posts, fraternal business groups, scouts, churches, synagogues, etc. Special attention and curriculum guidance is being directed to schools and those history or social studies classrooms where WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam era Veterans are invited in as speakers.

Close working relationships have developed with local veterans organizations including Syracuse’s VA Medical Center. Incorporated as a NY not-for-profit, Honor Flight Syracuse, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity, and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent determined by law.

(Guardian travel fees are payments for service and do not typically qualify for tax deductions.)

Our urgent objective is to accommodate local WWII veterans who otherwise would never visit their own memorial. Honor Flight is our way of paying a small tribute to those who gave so much to us – everything we have today – our very way of life. As one observer put it, “They were all just kids. And all they did was… save the world.”

At Honor Flight, we are committed to providing these heroes with, quite literally, a safe and memorable trip of a lifetime.

Thank you for joining us with your generous support!

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Rochester and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Syracuse Honor Flight.
