T.R. Johnson and Jesse Fulkersin Memorial Hyner View Preservation Fund
In 2016, the Foundation for Free Flight created a special fund to be
used for the preservation of free flight at Hyner View State in the Appalachian
area of Pennsylvania. The fund will exclusively be used for site preservation
projects on and around Hyner View and in particular will be focused on
the site's LZ protection.
Because the Hyner View LZ rescue project is likely to be expensive but
fairly short term, the Foundation established a special set of rules for
its fund that are intended to have its monies quickly disbursed in grants,
rather than balancing current needs with endowment building as we do for
our other funds. The Foundation views this as a continuation of the FFFs
efforts to establish targeted funds for particular high value, high contribution
projects in the future.
The special rules that the Foundation adopted to govern the Hyner View
Protection Fund are:
Special Fund Rules:
1. The Fund is for site preservation projects within 10 miles of Hyner
View State Park, in the state of Pennsylvania.
2. Contribution rules require $1 contribution to the endowment of the
Foundation General Fund or Site Preservation Fund for every $9 contributed
to the Hyner View PA Fund; a 9:1 ratio. When contributions are made to
the Hyner View Fund, the 9:1 rule is applied automatically.
3. Distributions from the Hyner View Fund will require the grantee to
follow the Foundations grant application process.
4. Grant requests from the Hyner View Fund will not be subject to the
Foundation's matching funds rule.
5. The Hyner View Fund will sunset on July 1, 2026 and all remaining funds
will revert to the Foundation's General Fund which can be used for any
NOTE: If contributors give $100 through the link or via check, well
put $90 in Hyner View and $10 in the general fund. You dont need
to make two separate contributions. If you want the $10 to go to the site
fund, then please specify that explicitly along with your donation.
