AAR also believes in Doing It Right outside of work, giving back to the communities where we live and operate. We support non-profits and organizations that work to improve society in four primary areas: veterans/active military; education with an emphasis on STEM; health and wellness; and diversity and inclusion. In the last decade, AAR’s charitable contributions have totaled over $8 million.

Veterans, Active Military & Their Families  

As a U.S. military partner and a company whose U.S. workforce includes 24 percent vets, supporting active and retired military is a priority. AAR actively supports groups devoted to veterans, armed forces members and the families of those who sacrificed to defend our country. Some of the organizations we contribute to include:

  • Marine Corps Scholarship Fund
  • Navy SEAL Foundation
  • Wounded Warriors Project
  • Marine Corps Association & Foundation
  • Rags of Honor

Education – Focus on STEM 

Committed to inspiring the next generation’s interest in aerospace and developing a pipeline of young talent for the aviation industry, AAR partners with organizations around the world to foster education in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. In addition to partnering with community colleges and technical schools near our MRO sites to help train aviation mechanics through our EAGLE program, we proudly open our doors to students for tours and mentorship programs, and play an active role in organizations such as:
