Friends Day of Giving 2022

GivingTuesday! Each year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, non-profits throughout the United States make an appeal for donors to consider their organization for year-end giving dollars. Join us this year on November 29, 2022, for a Friends Day of Giving!

Donate now!  

This year, the Friends are appealing to donors to contribute to the Friends of Flight 93 Education Scholarship program. The scholarship program, which was created approximately 10 years ago, provides monetary resources to schools to bring their students to the Memorial to learn about the events of 9/11 and specifically the Flight 93 Story

Ranger guided field trips to the Memorial are offered in the spring and fall of each year. During the 2022 school year, the Friends and the National Park Service hosted over 10,000 children through education scholarships with a budget of $75,000. The education scholarships are provided by the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial.

Field trips offer a unique learning experience for students of all ages:

  • In the Visitor Center, students learn about the passenger and crew members aboard Flight 93, the events of 9/11, and the Flight 93 story through exhibits and displays.
  • Weather and time permitting, students walk to the Memorial Plaza for a ranger led program.
  • From the plaza, students visit the Wall of Names and pay respect to the forty passengers and crew members.
  • Students can visit the Tower of Voices, a monumental ninety-three-foot-tall musical instrument holding forty wind chimes, representing the forty passengers and crew members.

The demand for field trips continue to grow, with your help the Friends will be able to continue funding education scholarships.

If you would like to contribute to help educate current and future generations on the Flight 93 Story, please consider directing your year-end donation to the Friends of Flight 93 Education Scholarship Program
