The Donaldson Foundation, on behalf of Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE:DCI), has donated $15,000 to the Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) Scholarship Foundation.  The funds will be used to establish an endowed scholarship at AAAA’s Lindbergh chapter in St. Louis. The scholarship will award a minimum of $1,000 annually to support the college education of selected students.
“The Donaldson team is committed to the entire rotorcraft industry. Our military aviators and their families are especially deserving of support and thanks from all Americans,” said Mike Scimone, president of Donaldson’s St. Louis office. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with AAAA and seeing our donation at work.”

According to Kristine Graham, Donaldson Foundation President, “This scholarship funding aligns well with the Foundation’s mission to support educational initiatives. It is especially meaningful to us considering the sacrifices currently being made by so many military families.”

The AAAA is a national organization with 70 local and regional chapters and more than 17,000 members who support U.S. Army Aviation soldiers and families. The AAAA Scholarship Foundation provides college grants and interest-free loans for members and their families and the families of deceased AAAA members.  Since its start in 1963, the AAAA Scholarship Foundation has awarded more than $4 million to more than 2,000 qualified applicants.

Donaldson Aerospace & Defense representatives will showcase their products in Exhibit 1440 at the upcoming AAAA Convention April 17-20 in Nashville, Tenn.  Anyone interested in Donaldson filtration solutions can visit www.DonaldsonAerospace-Defense.com.
