Global Engagement Support Options and Details
Seeking Support from Jeppesen
Jeppesen is an integral part of its communities around the world. Through strategic philanthropy, Jeppesen provides business-related cash or in-kind donations of products, services and sponsorships.
We place emphasis on sustainable, scalable, and replicable programs often beyond the period of investment.
Our focus is on programs that are catalysts for positive and systemic change infused with a broad base of community support.
Cash Donation Criteria:
We support projects and programs that align with one or more of our four focus areas and corresponding objectives:
- Our Future. Tomorrow’s Innovators: We are committed to helping children and youth achieve their potential. This includes educational and support programs that promote academic success, independence and economic sustainability.
- Our Heroes. Veteran’s and Their Families: We are committed to supporting our armed forces after their service is complete. We want to help our veterans and their families’ transition successfully into civilian life.
- Our Homes. Dynamic Communities: We focus our expertise and employee volunteerism on issues that are important to our global sites.
- Industry. We invest in non-profit industry-related programs that increase aviation involvement at all age levels (children through adults), programs that promote and support STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning and fund raising events.
In-Kind Donation Criteria:
Working together, Jeppesen and non-profit / non-government (NGO) organizations partner throughout the world to bring humanitarian goods and services to people in need.
- We provide our charts and services to these organizations to enable them to provide transportation for humanitarian purposes.
- We donate pilot training materials to organizations using aviation to teach youth math and science skills.
- We support volunteer pilot organizations on a mission by mission basis. We have put into place a system by which the pilot can complete a request form outlining the mission information, i.e., date of mission, departure airport, arrival airport, organization, mission number, etc., and then submit it to Jeppesen for processing. In this manner, we serve the greater pilot population versus one specific pilot and their respective airplane.
Sponsorship proposals are evaluated against six general criteria. These criteria have been developed to ensure that Jeppesen establishes sponsorship relationships that will mutually benefit Jeppesen and the receiving organization.
Proposals are evaluated for:
- Tangible benefits associated with the partnership.
- Opportunity to create long-term value.
- Ability to reach targeted audiences and build relationships.
- Positive exposure for the Jeppesen brand.
- Potential to be leveraged with additional resource investment.
- Potential for long-term, sustainable partnership or relationship.
