Airline miles help
Jet charter operator Schubach Aviation, based at McClellan-Palomar Airport, is celebrating 30 years of Miles this year by launching Miles.It Matters, a charitable giving program. Inspired by the legacy of Henry Schubach, the retired founder of Giving Back in San Diego, the program includes the company’s philanthropic contributions, grants and events. The Every Mile Donation campaign donates one cent for every mile flown on Schubach Aviation’s annual private charter flights to the San Diego-based nonprofit. This year’s partners are Monarch School, Soldier Asylum, and Cureband. Monarch School is a public-private partnership of the San Diego County Office of Education and the nonprofit Monarch School Project. It serves students who are experiencing homelessness. Shelter the Soldier adopts dogs from local shelters and rescues and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 veterans. Curebound raises strategic funding and invests in cancer research projects aimed at accelerating new discoveries into clinical application. The organization has raised and invested more than $23 million and funded more than 90 innovative research grants. Visit schubachaviation.com.
