Give More 24! – September 19

Give More 24! brings together our entire region for 24 hours of giving.

We all have a reason to give, and this year we want to raise $10,000 for new flight simulators. These invaluable tools provide virtual STEM aviation education to 5,000 youth we serve at PFEC. Look for e-mails and follow us on social media for more details.

Let’s all come together on Thursday, September 19th to give something more! Click on the Give More logo to make your gift on September 19th!

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

– Leonardo da Vinci


Through aviation, we inspire youth to pursue education and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields, while instilling an appreciation for the people, events, and innovations of historic Pearson Field.


  • We envision Pearson Field Education Center as a nationally recognized model for experiential STEM based K-12 education, uniquely combined with the appreciation and inspiration provided by integrating the rich history of Pearson Field and the people and events that came before us.
  • We envision Pearson Field Education Center and historic Pearson Field as the entry point to a thriving STEM/aviation cluster within a 100-mile radius of the oldest continuously operating airfield in the Pacific Northwest and one of the two oldest continuously operating airfields in the country. This includes locally available access to education at all levels, a healthy and growing family of STEM/aviation related businesses and the jobs they offer.
