Fundraising for this project includes an off Broadway performance of "Black Angels Over Tuskegee" as well as an auction for a flying lesson in a J-3 Cub, a Tour of Cleveland in Bell 206 BIII JetRanger, an introductory helicopter lesson in a Hughes 269C+ Helicopter, an introductory airplane flying lesson, a ride in a WWII era SNJ (Navy version of T-6 Texan), as well as more aviation and non-aviation items.
