Tailhook Educational Foundation Chairman's End of the Year Appeal

Executive Director's Remarks - Winter 2018


The flight deck is secured and the Air Plan is closed out for 2017. I take this opportunity to personally thank you for your continued support to the Tailhook Educational Foundation (TEF). TEF board Chairman RDML J.J. Quinn indicated in the Fall 2017 issue of The Hook magazine, “ ... due to your tremendous generosity, TEF exceeded our 2020 strategic goals - three years early.”

You helped TEF set a few other records this year as well. We received more Tailhook Reunion donation funds than ever before; we processed more applications; we awarded more scholarships and funded more money per scholarship than ever before. 2017 was a banner year due completely to your nonstop generosity.

By now you have received our TEF Chairman's end of year (EOY) appeal. RDML Quinn provided details on how you can continue to support TEF's ongoing efforts to provide scholarship funding for our exceptional Naval Aviation legacy students. In our appeal, we encourage you to continue your steadfast support.

Another important way to help your Tailhook Educational Foundation is to sponsor a quarterly copy of THE HOOK magazine sent to the school of your choice. The Hook-To-School program allows you to send one of the premier quarterly magazines in the galaxy to the Elementary School, Middle School, High School, College or ROTC unit (including the service academies) of your choice. The Hook-To-School program is further explained on our web page as well, and can be accessed directly using this web page form: https://tailhook.formstack.com/forms/hook_to_school

If you have any questions, ideas or recommendations for your TEF staff or board of directors, please do not hesitate to contact me personally.

Warmest Regards and Mahalo for your support,

Tailhook Educational Foundation
