Brown, CAF President / CEO.  “To offset costs we rely on fundraising events like this, especially for complicated restorations that require larger sums of money.”The 12 Planes of Christmas campaign is being organized online at SupportCAF.org. Donors can contribute to the CAF Restoration Grant Fund or designate their contribution to a specific aircraft.
