Donate your old plane and help save and change lives.

If yours is a plane that is useful as-is, we’ll be able to offer you a tax credit equivalent to the fair market value of the plane. If it isn’t a plane we can use, we recommend you sell it yourself, and donate part or all of the proceeds. Regardless of how you are able to proceed, your gift will be helping children and families while providing you with a significant tax credit.

Once you’re ready to commit, we’ll provide a fair market Certified Appraisal or USPAP Certified Appraisal at your location.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can MAF use my donated aircraft?

Maybe. Depending on the make, model, and condition of the aircraft donated, MAF may include it in our global fleet of over 130 aircraft OR we may opt to sell it and use the proceeds to help fund new aircraft that better suits our needs. If it is unlikely that MAF can use the aircraft as-is, it’s preferable that you sell it on your own and donate all or a portion of the sale to MAF in the form of cash.

Will I receive a tax deduction for my donation?

Yes. MAF Canada is a Canadian Registered Charity approved to receive donations including gift-in-kind donations. If your aircraft is used by MAF, or appreciably modified by MAF, you can deduct the appraised market value of your aircraft. If accepted as a donation, we will arrange a fair market Certified Appraisal or USPAP Certified Appraisal at your location. If the aircraft is sold by MAF, the value of the deduction is determined by the sale price of the aircraft.

Can I decide where MAF will use my aircraft?

No. All donations made to MAF Canada will be used at the sole discretion of MAF Canada, including aircraft donated as gift-in-kind.
