The Parrot Grant Program
The Flight Club Foundation's objective and mission is to support the wide variety of programs offered to help people and parrots alike. One method to offer this support is our Parrot Grant Program. A program where we award grant money to non-profit organisations who either help parrots, people or both. Our selection is based on many elements including by not limited to: community impact, educational value, financial responsibility, and role by which parrot awareness can be raised or fostered. $4,500 has been awarded so far!
