Phillips 66 Aviation Donates $22,000 To Corporate Angel Network

Gift Made Through Corporate Angel Award Sponsorship

Phillips 66 Aviation awarded $22,000 to longtime partner, Corporate Angel Network (CAN), during this year’s NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). CAN’s sole mission is to arrange free transportation to medical treatment centers for cancer patients and their caregivers. The organization does this by utilizing empty seats onboard business aircraft during routine business trips.

The donation is a part of Phillips 66 Aviation’s sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a unique program that recognizes corporations and their flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants in CAN. The award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s Corporate Angel Award recipients are ConocoPhillips, Honeywell, Ultimate Jet Charter and Dow Chemical. There are more than 500 major corporations that participate in CAN.

“These days, the fight against cancer is personal – for everybody. I’m honored to present this check to Corporate Angel Network on behalf of Phillips 66 Aviation and to recognize the incredible corporations that help make CAN’s mission achievable, through the Corporate Angel Award,” said Lindsey Grant, Manager, General Aviation. "We encourage other corporations to join Corporate Angel Network to provide even more empty seats to cancer patients and their families. Together, we will fight on.”

Phillips 66 has sponsored the Corporate Angel Award since 2010, donating more than $125,000 in order to honor and help provide the recognition that these outstanding CAN participants deserve. This year’s award is co-sponsored by Phillips 66 Aviation (lead sponsor), Safe Flight Instrument Corporation and Business & Commercial Aviation magazine.

"On behalf of Corporate Angel Network, I want to thank our supporters including Phillips 66 Aviation, Safe Flight Instrument Corporation and Business & Commercial Aviation magazine," said Gina A. Russo, Corporate Angel Network’s Executive Director. "Our organization cannot do what it does year after year without the generosity of corporate flight departments and donations. It’s our hope that we continue to provide cancer patients access to the best treatment available for their specific diagnoses.”

Corporate Angel Network arranges approximately 250 patient flights each month. CAN has completed 57,000 cancer patient flights since its inception in 1981.
