Charitable giving is a part of Schubach Aviation’s DNA, so it’s only fitting that we celebrated our milestone 30-year anniversary in 2022 with the launch of a new philanthropic initiative, Miles that Matter. Inspired by retired founder Henry Schubach’s legacy of giving back in San Diego, the program encompasses the company’s year-long non-profit contributions, donations, and events. Plus, the annual donation-per-mile campaign, which contributes one-cent for each mile flown on Schubach Aviation’s annual private charter flights to a San Diego-based non-profit.
For Miles that Matter inaugural year, we’re pleased to partner with Monarch School, Shelter to Soldier, and Curbound. All are past donation-per-mile recipients making a positive impact in San Diego communities and beyond.
Monarch School, a public-private partnership between the San Diego County Office of Education and the nonprofit Monarch School Project, is the only comprehensive K-12 school in the country designed exclusively to educate and support youth experiencing homelessness. Monarch provides students with a safe, stable learning environment where they can persevere through the trauma of homelessness that has affected them and their success in education.
Shelter to Soldier is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and rescue organizations and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Military Sexual Trauma (MST). The program also places emotional support animals (ESAs) with active duty military and veterans, and deploys the Shelter to Soldier Canine Ambassadors, a team of therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers, to provide visits of love and comfort to local military, veterans and their families.
Curebound raises and invests strategic funding in translational cancer research projects aimed at accelerating new discoveries to clinical application. With over $23 million raised and invested into collaborative cancer research, the organization has funded 90+ innovative research grants with 6 clinical trials currently underway. Curebound is founded on the deep-seated belief that cures are possible and that through the power of collaboration and the spirit of community, we can create cures in our lifetime.
