At JFKIAT, we are committed to supporting and engaging our community – not just within T4, but throughout our borough. This fall, we were excited to announce that we had raised and donated $150,000 to support local Queens nonprofit organizations and institutions through our 4GOOD program. The funds, raised in collaboration with a number of JFKIAT’s business partners, were distributed to organizations that provide community aid, local business support, education, and mental health resources – pillars that are integral to our philanthropic priorities.
This year’s donation recipients included August Martin High School, Baisley Pond Park, Bethany Baptist Church, Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens, Breast Cancer Awareness, Farmingdale State College, The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, Jamaica Center Business Improvement District, LGBT Network, LIFE Camp, Inc., Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, Venture House, Virgil I. Grissom Middle School, and York College – CUNY Aviation Institute. We presented one-time donations of $10,000 to each organization to support their work to strengthen the local community.
Aimed at promoting educational, social, and professional success, JFKIAT’s 4GOOD program consists of two components: Community (Corporate Philanthropy) and Sustainability (Environment). Corporate resources include financial contributions, charitable giving, employee volunteering and community outreach. Since we launched 4GOOD in 2016, we have distributed approximately $100,000 annually in funds for charities, organized events at Terminal 4, and worked closely with several organizations in Queens. In 2022, we have raised a total of $200,000 through 4GOOD to aid the Queens community, donating critical funds to local nonprofit organizations that provide community support, local business support, and education.
