Statements
Mission Statement Angel Flight Central is serving people in need by arranging charitable flights for access to health care or other humanitarian purposes.
Background Statement Angel Flight Central began when one general aviation pilot, a cancer survivor himself, flew a foster child from Kansas City to Ohio to a one-of-a-kind specialist for a life-saving surgery. The focus of our founder, James H. Stevens, Jr. remains our motto today. "We are simply about people helping people in need." Following a two-year study, Angel Flight Central, Inc., originally known as Wings Over Mid-America, Inc., was founded in August 1995 with a handful of passionate volunteer pilots hoping to use their flying talents to help a total of two passengers per month. By the end of the organization's 22nd fiscal year AFC has flown over 24,000 flights covering over 9 million charitable miles helping passengers in need with a base of 700 pilots and "ground" volunteers.  By sharing with and learning from other organizations in our "industry," as well as collaborating to promote each other, we hope to better help people in need gain access to distant destinations.
Impact Statement
Accomplishments from 2016:

  • Angel Flight Central successfully coordinated 2,134 flights during our 22nd fiscal year (FY2017) serving both children and adults in need.     
  • AFC successfully met the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance's Standards for Charity Accountability; based upon meeting twenty standards which are applied to governance, fund raising practices, solicitations, informational materials and how AFC money is spent.  
  • Lastly, Angel Flight Central leadership and staff increased efficiency and service while dramatically decreasing expenses, further securing its future existence during these difficult financial times.  
 
The organization's goals for 2017-18 include four key areas:
 
  1. Increase outreach by engaging community volunteers.
  2. Build Operation efficiency by fine-tuning the "customer-experience" and cross-training among staff.
  3. Continue to build the organization's financial position through special events outside the Kansas City region and further development of grant/foundation support.
  4. Increase marketing by utilizing social-media, Print-media, P.S.A.'s and documenting/enhancing referral-resource contacts. 
 
 The strategic goals for 2018 will be made in January 2018. 
Needs Statement Our most pressing current needs are financial supporters to sponsor flights, volunteer pilots to help facilitate flights, collaborative partners to assist in referral of individuals in need of our services.

Strategic Plan Objectives: 

  • Expanded Marketing
  • Reaching Pilots 
  • Expanded Operational Resources
  • Expanded Financial Resources
  • Expanded Outreach  
 
Specifically, we are working to build collaborative partnerships through grassroots outreach, improve our reach and awareness within the widespread communities within our 10-State region through social media, community participation and presentations, as well as meeting with as many medical-related staff as possible.  We continue to track and analyze passenger-feedback very closely in order to maximize safety and satisfaction of service.  We seek the opinions of others and value change.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Since 1995, Angel Flight Central has served people in need by arraigning charitable flights for health care or other humanitarian purposes with the help of volunteer pilots and wonderful donors like you. The help that you have provided has alleviated the burden of long distance medical travel for those who must travel for treatment outside of their home area. In many cases this is lifesaving treatment.
The number one cause of bankruptcy in America is health related. Another incredible statistic is that 40% of the population has some sort of debt due to health issues. I can tell you that percentage would be much higher without organizations like Angel Flight Central. Can you imagine having to pay for an airline ticket for yourself and a caregiver while traveling once a month for treatment when finances are already tight??
Whether an individual is traveling for cancer treatment, participating in a clinical trial or having pre or post operation checkups, you can be sure that by supporting the services of Angel Flight Central you are “giving hope to people in need”.
Thank You!
Don Sumple
CEO/Executive Director
Programs
Description Free long distance non-emergency air transportation for children and adults in financial need who are unable to access appropriate care on their own due to financial, geographical and health constraints.
Program Budget $255,000.00
Category Health Care, General/Other Patient & Family Support
Population Served People/Families of People with Health Conditions, Adults,
Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success No one's health (physical and emotional) should be jeopardized because of geography or economics.  Yet, this is the case for far too many people.  As a result of AFC providing free, sustainable access to medical advances, clinical trials, second-opinions and treatment specialists, the most common barrier to wellness is eliminated; allowing our country's most vulnerable families to access critical medical services.  Obtaining the best treatment available with limited delay has been proven to be less costly and a more effective means of keeping low income, elderly and disabled recipients out of hospitals and nursing homes; allowing such individuals to remain viable members of the community and live healthier and independent lives while lowering overall health care costs. To measure this goal, AFC will strive for more than 90% of its passengers to indicate that the free flights increased their hope, decreased stress and fear, and removed a financial barrier to wellness.  The 2016 passenger survey response indicated 94% felt that Angel Flight Central services did just that.  
Long-Term Success
Angel Flight Central seeks to significantly decrease "transportation" as a powerful non-economic barrier to access health care and treatment for people in the mid-to-upper Midwest.
 
Many people with chronic conditions, which include arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes, need medical services frequently.  As of 2009, the Center for Disease Control estimates that 78% of the adult population age 55 and older has at least one of these chronic conditions.  It is the goal of AFC to reach those individuals and offer free access to life sustaining treatments and health care services, therefore, improving the passenger's health and well-being.  When AFC Passengers were asked if the flights provided them increased their health and well-being, on a 1-5 scale (5 being most impactful), the average response was a 4.9.  This response clearly indicates that service provided has a major impact on one's ability to regain health and remain hopeful.  
Program Success Monitored By
Data is analyzed on a monthly, yearly and historical basis by staff and the Board of Trustees. The data includes number of requests, geographic location of requests, successful missions flown and number of cancellations. For flights that are canceled, the reasons for cancellations are reviewed to see what AFC can control or improve internally to decrease the number of missions not flown.
 
Passengers are asked to complete a confidential evaluation once per six months throughout their treatment process.  The results of the surveys are tabulated and shared with AFC Staff, Board of Trustees and key volunteers.  
Examples of Program Success

Angel Flight Central successfully completed 2,134 free flights during our most-recent fiscal year; and with a perfect safety record.  AFC's medical flights positively affected people-in-need within 43 of the 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico.  AFC Board and Staff will continue to collect and analyze survey responses.  As always, it's most rewarding to hear from the passenger's themselves:  

  • "I am not sure how I would continue with my treatment without the assistance of AFC".  
  • "Without your support my son would not be able to receive his much needed treatment.  God Bless"
  • "I wanted to take moment to thank you for your willingness to help families in need.  I will forever be grateful for your kindness"
  • "Thanks to you we can go to our specialist without worrying about the prohibitive cost, not to mention the hassle of commercial transportation." 
  • "I'm very grateful for all of the help that we've received.  I appreciate the staff and pilots- you all are true angels!" 
Description Angel Flight Central coordinates compassion flights that include humanitarian issues not associated with health care.  Examples include flying domestic violence victims out of harms way, reuniting loved ones with an ill relative, coordinating flights for ill children to get to special needs camps, and flying "cargo" to hospitals and treatment centers (blood, tissue, breast milk).

Short-Term Success The success of this program is measured quantitatively with statistics reported on monthly. Compassion flights are tracked separately. It is also measured by collaborative relationships Angel Flight Central develops with social service organizations and special needs camps to transport children during the summer months.
Long-Term Success The long-term success of this program will earn Angel Flight Central a reputation as a national leader in never having to utter the words, "no, we can't help" for any humanitarian struggle.   
Program Success Monitored By Statistics are the easiest way we track the success of the program. We also analyze the number of contacts and relationships we build with referral agencies. Collaborative relationships continue to be cultivated with referral agencies, camps and communities. 
Examples of Program Success

We track the success of the program by the number of missions coordinated and the diverse range of flight requests and sources.  

Description Angel Flight Central volunteer pilots sign up for our emergency response program. Angel Flight Central enacts a quick notify system during a local, regional and national crisis. Staff members collaborate with other disaster response agencies in preparation for a national disaster. Angel Flight Central pilots fly disaster relief personnel, emergency supplies and/or evacuate people from the area and reunite separated family members.

Short-Term Success Internal policies and procedures determine the internal success of the program. Our staff is tasked with educating our pilots on our emergency system and finding new volunteer pilots who want to participate in this specific program.
Long-Term Success Angel Flight Central will be a recognized disaster relief agency that collaborates with local and national disaster aid agencies.
Program Success Monitored By Periodic testing of our emergency response system with our pilots helps us determine the success of the project. Angel Flight Central has tested the system and tracked the number of volunteer pilots who respond in a timely manner.
Examples of Program Success

 Fortunately, the Emergency Response Program was not called upon during the last fiscal year.  We stand ready to respond.  For the health of the communities within AFC's 10-State territory, to not be needed is very good news.  As an example of how this program can be used, here is a story from three seasons ago:

During AFC's 2014 Fiscal Year, the pilots responded to an announcement to assist the community of Moore, OK when it was struck with yet another devastating tornado.  AFC pilots assisted with the transportation of service-dogs from as far north as Chicago, IL and safely delivered the trained dogs and their owners to the medical facilities housing the injured within the Moore community.   
Description Angel Flight Central local grassroots volunteer Ambassadors are groups of non-pilot and pilot volunteers, divided by State boundaries, who help to advocate for AFC in their communities and assist in building relationships with health care professionals, social workers and other key contacts in their community. Additionally, the recruitment of volunteer pilots and non-pilots is a key element to broadening the lives we touch.

Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success Short term success is defined by exposure to people from the communities the Ambassadors operate in. These successes are conveyed through reports from our Volunteer State Chairpersons that outline the activities they coordinate or participate in, including individual impressions made. The activities include exhibiting at health fairs or air shows, any media attention on volunteer pilots or passengers, recruiting new volunteers and making speeches to different community groups.  During FY2017, AFC and it's volunteers competed over 220 community events and presentations.  
Long-Term Success Volunteers in our ten state region will coordinate efforts in pilot recruitment, passenger recruitment, public relations and friend-raising in their communities.  Each state will be able to financially support the flight activity within their state.
Program Success Monitored By The staff assists volunteers in coordinating events by providing the appropriate materials, assisting with media contacts and providing a speakers bureau kits. A volunteer survey is also used yearly to track responses of our volunteer program and is used to find ways to improve the program.  The hours of each volunteer are collected monthly.  During FY2017, AFC Pilots and Ground Volunteers donated 6,547 hours of service.
Examples of Program Success

Angel Flight Central is able to exhibit at numerous air shows and health fairs throughout our 10 state region. We receive new pilot applications from the recruitment efforts of our volunteers. Our referral resources also increase with the outreach efforts of our volunteers. All of the outreach and recruitment efforts should eventually develop into more and more community members calling for service through their new knowledge of the organization.  Through the generous efforts of over 700 volunteers, Angel Flight Central is able to keep its staff to a minimum level and its donations benefiting those in need.  This incredible group of volunteers donated over 4,300 hours of community outreach and education last year with value of nearly $96,600 to the organization.  In addition, they successfully presented and/or exhibited to 220 audiences during the year.

CEO Comments Angel Flight Central assists in the fight to save lives by transporting families and assisting communities. Our volunteer pilots and aviation resources provide long-distance access to medical or compassionate care at no charge to the passenger. The generosity of our volunteers provides HELP and HOPE to children and adults in need. The unpredictability of life could put anyone in a position of need. Illnesses may require diagnosis or treatment from medical specialists across the country. Accidents happen leaving victims with no financial resources. People in physically and emotionally harmful situations see no affordable way to escape to a safe haven. And, in the wake of both natural and national disasters, families and communities are left with special needs they cannot meet on their own. In all of these situations personal, financial and insurance resources will only cover a portion of the costs associated with the illness and/or crisis. Ordinary people can find themselves or loved ones in an extraordinary circumstance. Often their only option for help requires traveling to a distant city which can be expensive and not covered by insurance. Therefore, a lack of affordable travel prohibits many from accessing life-saving help. Volunteers donate their time, talents, airplanes and resources to ensure free transportation for those in need. We are removing the financial burden of transportation as an obstacle to receiving specialized medical evaluation, diagnosis or treatment for any independently mobile child or adult. None of Angel Flight Central's pilot and non-pilot volunteers are financially compensated for their service. Their reward, and the organization's success is best measured by a patient who receives life-saving medical treatment; a cancer survivor who participates in distant research to save the lives of others; a volunteer who takes time to help a stranger; and, the many hugs, grateful tears and smiles from those we've helped.

CEO Comments

We are extremely thankful to have such a wonderful group of men and women who give of themselves as volunteer pilots to help transport individuals in need of medical treatment and for other humanitarian purposes. Our passengers simply do not have the resources to handle the necessary transportation costs for medical treatment outside of their geographic area. In addition, these individuals would be sacrificing the bare necessities of life such as food, clothing and shelter to try to cover their travel expenses. No one should have to choose between receiving lifesaving medical treatment and maintaining their quality of life. Thanks to our volunteer pilots, those decisions do not have to be made. As CEO and Executive Director, I just want to say “thank you” to our donors and our volunteer pilots who allow us to continue to provide this service to our neighbors in need. You are truly ‘giving hope wings.”

Organization Comments
Paralleling our mission growth, we have experienced the generosity of donors who support our mission. The leadership of Angel Flight Central is committed to be reliable, responsive and respected.  We continue to take assertive steps to remain financially accountable and transparent, as evident by the "Accredited Charity Seal of Accountability" awarded by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.
  
We will always strive to fund more flights annually.  The ongoing, aggressive focus to leverage in-kind gifts and services while closely monitoring expenses has produced a profitable advantage to a donor wanting to see their support multiplied over four times.  We operate the remainder of the budget on cash gifts from individuals, corporations and private foundations. The breakdown from FY2016 is as follows: Individuals $100,532 (43%), Corp/Business $71,494 (30%), Foundations $53,079 (23%), Organizations $9,402 (4%), Other $332 
 
Our vision for the future is firmly rooted with sensible strategic planning, responsible business practices and realistic financial projections. The hope is to create ongoing income to support operations throughout the year allowing Angel Flight Central's small staff and volunteer team to remain focused on providing service and support to people in need for many years to come.
