In 2002, the Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund was established to provide deserving aviation students a scholarship grant in Jason’s name. Jason was the Captain of United Flight 93 on 9/11/2001 which was brought down outside Shanksville, PA by the passengers and crew, instead of the terrorist's intended target, the U.S. Capitol Building.
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, the Fund is launching a significant donation drive designed to expand the scholarship nationally.
The goal of the Wordpress-based website will be to:
1)Communicate Jason’s story and the mission of the Scholarship Fund.
2)Drive fundraising and volunteer participation centering on 10th Anniversary Gala Fundraiser and Golf Tournament. An easy to see “Give Today” button or link to Donate page should be included.
3)Drive social engagement – Follow via email sign up, “Like” on Facebook, Follow on Twitter, Official YouTube page, and among qualified youth, Apply.
The website today at Dahlfund.org is a solid functional start, we are looking to further enhance the look/feel to attract more corporate donors.
The tagline for the fund is “Helping Young Aviators Achieve Their Dreams”.
This project is being considered for a 99Designs.com case study.
