As Friends of Flight 93, we welcome worldwide all who would join us in honoring the sacrifice and courage of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 by supporting the mission of the Flight 93 National Memorial with volunteers, resources, and civic engagement, so as to inspire all who visit with the Flight 93 story.
Giving Tuesday! 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, to make your donation for a Friends Day of Giving!
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.
Help us raise our goal of $75,000 for the 2023 Education Scholarship Program the Friends provide for students K-12.
On November 6, 2022, 10 Flight 93 family members ran the New York City Marathon. This year runners were sponsored by the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial who were the benefactor of the funds raised. The Friends organization plans to put the funds raised toward the enhancements to the Western Overlook Project at the Memorial site. The Western Overlook is where family members were brought for their first look at the crash site in September 2001. The area has quite a bit of historical significance not only as the area where families had their first look at the crash site, adjacent to this area is where the crime scene investigation was conducted.
Visit Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial Fundraising Page for 2022 TCS New York City Marathon Fundraising (hakuapp.com) to make a donation. The family members have raised over $35,000! The Friends are so proud of their dedication and hard work to making this possible.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Friends event, Pints for Parks! We have gained 40 new Friends members! You are invaluable! We are so excited that you have helped the Friends raise almost $3,000 for the Western Overlook enhancements at Flight 93 National Memorial.

September 11, 2001 began as an ordinary, late-summer day. But, in less than two hours' time, this seemingly routine day was transformed when nineteen terrorists boarded and hijacked four airplanes to attack America.Read the story
