April’s donation went to the Isaac Asimov Memorial Debates. I just put the May donation in the mail: $200 to AOPA’s Air Safety Foundation, an organization dedicated to making flying safer for general aviation pilots. In the past, I’ve given them $100/year, but I decided to double it this year because general aviation has been struggling under potential user fees, not to mention the media scrutiny after accidents like Corey Lidle’s crash last October.
* What happened to June? This year, I have budgeted $200/month for charitable donations. But I don’t necessarily send out $200 donations to 12 different organizations each year. I am planning on sending $400 to UCR ($300 to creative writing and $100 to political science) and that $400 comes from the June/July budget.
