MEET OUR CARD PARTNERS
Programs with Purpose
Each year, NetJets carefully selects a philanthropic organization to bring awareness and raise funds through sales of a dedicated NetJets CardTM.
Corporate Angel Network
Our partnership pairs the finest fleet in private aviation with the only charitable organization focused solely on transporting patients with cancer for lifesaving treatment. NetJets is extending its partnership with Corporate Angel Network (CAN) to offer NetJets Owners a new way to fly while helping others. Purchase a 25-hour NetJets Corporate Angel CardTM and NetJets will contribute one flight hour to patients with cancer traveling to and from treatment.
In 2020, NetJets donated $2,500 for each NetJets(RED) Card purchased to the (RED) organization’s Global Fund that supports global health programs. The partnership raised over $2M for the fight to end AIDS.
NetJets participates each year in volunteering and giving efforts dedicated to a number of local and national philanthropic organizations.
We have a long history supporting Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, including taking part in the organization's very first wish that was granted in central Ohio and being inducted into Make-A-Wish’s Chris Greicius Society. NetJets employees help grant wishes for ill children and volunteer throughout the year.
AMERICAN RED CROSS
We are a longtime partner of the American Red Cross, supporting its mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies through our employee volunteering events and monetary donations. In 2020, NetJets held three blood drives, collecting over 200 units of blood—enough to potentially save over 660 lives.
BLUE LIGHTNING INITIATIVE
We are a proud partner of the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Department of Homeland Security to combat human trafficking through the Blue Lightning Initiative.
FAMILY MENTOR FOUNDATION
Family Mentor Foundation seeks to help meet the unmet needs of children in our community through a variety of programs and resources that will help them to reach their full potential. NetJets’ employees volunteered throughout 2020, building food boxes for children in need.
FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES
Each year, Franklin County Children Services helps more than 30,000 children and their families through prevention, protection, placement, and permanency programs. NetJets employees donated 252 Christmas gifts for children in need in central Ohio in 2020.
HOMELESS FAMILIES FOUNDATION
The Homeless Families Foundation educates and nurtures children while empowering families to achieve stable housing and self-sufficiency. NetJets employees volunteered throughout 2020 and helped design the annual fundraiser.
MID-OHIO FOOD COLLECTIVE
The Mid-Ohio Food Collective aims to provide efficient, effective ways for hungry people to meet their basic food and nutrition needs. In 2020, NetJets employees donated over 700 pounds of food, equal to approximately 19,373 meals.
NATIONWIDE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
Nationwide Children’s Hospital opened in 1984; with a mission to care for sick and impoverished children. The Foundation, the fundraising arm of Nationwide Children’s, supplies much needed funds for innovative research, emerging trends in pediatric health, and for children with cancer, heart defects, autism, behavioral health conditions, and other medical issues that affect their lives. Each year NetJets serves as presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament, supplying employee volunteers and hosting the weekend’s benefit concert, with all proceeds benefiting the hospital.
THE NATURE CONSERVANCY
The Nature Conservancy was founded in 1951 and is a global environmental organization, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. It works with affiliates in 79 countries and territories, and across all 50 United States. They work to protect the natural world and focus on the path to a more hopeful, sustainable future. NetJets fosters a relationship with the Columbus chapter of Nature Conservancy, and employees are able to "adopt" a piece of the Big Darby Headquarters to plant trees, collect seeds, and assist in the removal of invasive species.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities® is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. NetJets employees volunteered at the house throughout 2020 and donated 100 new Keurig® coffee makers to the Ronald McDonald House of Charities of Central Ohio.
UNITED SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS
USO® is the nation's leading charitable organization that serves active-duty service members and military families. NetJets provided auction items for their annual fundraiser in 2020.
SUPPORTING THE FUTURE OF AVIATION
In partnership with the Columbus Foundation, NetJets awarded 10 scholarships in 2020 worth $10,000 each to full-time college students studying aviation or hospitality or attending flight school. This program is an ideal opportunity to empower our youth, support the community, and encourage career growth in the aviation industry.
