Ways to Support CFOH

Without a crew, a flight can’t get off the ground. When a sick child flies with CFOH, the “crew” consists not only of airline personnel, but also people behind the scenes, like you, who make the flight a reality. Our crew consists of donors, board and committee members, volunteers, and staff. It includes a child’s family and medical team. The CFOH crew, and everyone in it, is what makes flights for these children possible.

There are many ways you can join our crew in order to keep CFOH in the air. Click on each item below to learn more.

We recommend you consult with your attorney and/or CPA to determine the giving options that are best for you. If you would like to discuss any of these options, call the CFOH office at 919.466.8593.

Cash Donation

No amount is too small. Cash gifts are used to support services provided by CFOH and—if needed—our staff can work with you to design a payment schedule that best suits your needs. Make a donation now.


Volunteering at CFOH might just be the highest paid free work you’ll ever do. What our volunteers receive in the gratitude of families and the fulfillment of doing something that’s making a real difference in people’s lives is something a paycheck could never begin to cover.

Since we provide flights for children all over the world, most of our volunteer opportunities are focused around our fundraising events. They couldn’t take off without your help! See our upcoming local volunteer opportunities here. If you want to host your own event to benefit CFOH, contact Lori Smith at lori@cfoh.org.
