The Mission

Jazz Pilots For Kids (JPFK) is a Not for Profit Organization (NPO). JPFK operates as a charity within Canada with a focus on helping kids. We work in partnership with other like-minded NPOs to support food and breakfast programs. 

Jazz Pilots For Kids provides an excellent opportunity for community engagement of Jazz pilots and their families.  By working together, the pilots have built new and relevant relationships, while demonstrating the power of volunteerism and leadership. Many pilots share a sense of satisfaction experienced with their involvement in this project.
