Dorr Aviation Supports Our Troops
We are passionate about giving back to our troops who defend our freedoms.
We Help a Hero’s Child
“Freedom Alliance has opened my eyes to so many possibilities. I would not be going to college if it wasn’t for this scholarship. Freedom Alliance has also created many opportunities for me to speak about my Dad. I am so grateful that I have been able to do and experience everything scholarship offers.”
Sophomore in college, Courtney H., whose father was killed in Iraq in 2005

Dorr Aviation has been supporting The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund since 2006. For each loan we close, we make an out-of-pocket donation to this important and worthwhile cause. We have contributed over $33,000 since we began partnering with Freedom Alliance, which has provided at least 6 children with a college scholarship.
The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication exhibited by Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending our country by providing educational scholarships to their children. Thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Guardsmen have been killed defending our great nation and it is our honor to help them achieve the dream of a college education.

We are Proud of our Veterans
Dorr Aviation has also been a supporter in the past of the Wounded Warrior Project. The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to “foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.”
We have also contributed to the success of a program called THRIVE which stands for Transforming Health and Resilience through Integration of Values-based Experiences, and is a 14 week program for female US Veterans in Tampa, FL. After the completion of THRIVE these veterans have noted a reduction in anxiety, depression and a huge improvement in their overall quality of life. For additional information check out the Fox news coverage on this important program.
Some of our clients are active service members and one charitable endeavor that is near and dear to their heart, and now to ours as well, is The National WASP WWII Museum. This museum is a patriotic tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots or Fly Girls. It’s an important part of our nation’s history that will be preserved for future generations.
“I look for companies that support our Troops and Dorr does this with flying colors. They went well above and beyond what is expected; Dorr Aviation is hard to beat.”

We Support our Troops
We have sent hundreds of care packages to our troops stationed overseas. Dozens of soldiers have received packages from us every few months, from personal care items to food and candy to the comforts of home. We helped them celebrate holidays away from home and family by sending special holiday-themed packages. We also hosted luncheons for them when they came home from their deployments.
“I wish to thank you dearly for the awesome care package which my colleagues and I enjoyed. It’s encouraging to know that good people are supporting us back home.”
