10. WORKING FOR YOU
The Brewer Trophy Aviation Education Association is a 501(c) 3 [APPLIED FOR WITH IRS] non-profit organization. None of our members is on a salary. We are wholly dedicated to the 3+million educators and 100+ million students across the 50 states and Territories. Every dollar that comes into the Association is returned to the education community through programs aimed at rekindling the awareness between the arts, history, math and science and the aviation education curriculum. The Brewer Family has had a direct influence on these programs since well before 1940, and we are dedicated to continuing the tradition for centuries to come.
