Community Investment and Giving


Centennial Airport and the Centennial Airport Foundation are proud of the social investments we make in the communities in which we live and work. As part of Centennial Airport's corporate social responsibility, our culture of caring extends beyond our office doors and well into the surrounding area through charitable giving, volunteers who donate their time and passion to multiple community organizations, and generous in-kind donations or services and support.

The Centennial Airport Foundation supports the advancement of aviation through a variety of educational scholarships and aviation-centered awards. Its mission is to inspire and to fuel the next generation of aviation and aeronautical professionals, as well as increase public awareness of the industry’s many contributions to Colorado—and the people that live here.

Centennial Airport, and the Foundation supported more than 20 charities and organizations in five distinct categories: aviation and aerospace education and history, veterans’ causes, health well-being and development, civic and youth organizations, and business and economic development. In 2014, Centennial Airport and the Airport Foundation donated a total of $27,350. Those charities, collectively, raised more than $2.7 million.
