Please note dues increase effective April, 2021!

Pilots For Kids has increased annual dues for the first time in 27 years (1994). Effective April, 2021, annual dues will increase to $25 per year. This increase was required to pay for on-line processing fees. Our dues increase will continue to guarantee that 100% of our donations go to the kids. Members who have set up automatic dues renewal via PayPal will see a "heads-up" email 10 days before their next scheduled renewal, and will renew at the new rate.
