About: Reach for Kids is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization created in 1998 by the Independent Pilots Association (IPA), the collective bargaining unit representing the pilots who fly for United Parcel Service.

Over the past 25 years, our IPA Foundation and IPA Reach for Kids charities have donated over $7 million to local, national, and international children's charities!

RFK Mission: Through charitable events, RFK raises money to benefit children’s charities in the Louisville, KY area. This is one way in which the IPA and its members can give back to the community in which the IPA is headquartered.

IPA raised $18,159 for Kosair Charities at their 2018 event!

Thanks for Your Support!

Thanks to the generosity of our corporate donors, local merchants, IPA families and friends, our 2018 Reach for Kids campaign was a success! We raised $18,159 for Kosair Charities, which supports over 200 pediatric agencies with funding for research, clinical services, healthcare and education.

Preparations are already underway for our 2019 RFK campaign which includes our continued sponsorship of the Bowman Field 4-Mile Run/Walk on Oct. 5 during the Aviation & Military Heritage Festival. Proceeds from our corporate sponsorships, online auction, raffle, direct donations and Bowman 4-Miler will benefit Kosair Charities and Home of the Innocents.
