The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust's mission is to promote the Royal Air Force, to support its people now and into the future and to encourage air-mindedness and the aviation-related education of youth.
This will be achieved, primarily, through:
The staging of the Royal International Air Tattoo, the Royal Air Force Concerts and other similar activities, and the giving of grants to satisfy the Trust's objectives.
Despite being the youngest member of the Royal Air Force family, the Charitable Trust has had a significant impact on the lives of many people.
Its strength lies in its ability to support such a wide range of projects and initiatives benefitting RAF serving personnel, young people and veterans.
The Trustees award grants to those people and projects that they assess to be most worthy of financial support and most closely aligned to their charitable objectives.
