Congratulations on another outstanding year for Angel Flight West!
Your help and support in 2013 enabled Angel Flight West to continue its invaluable work in arranging free air transportation to those with critical healthcare or social needs. Our 2013 Annual Report tells our story by the numbers, by the people we serve, and by the donors and pilots who make our “miracles of flight” possible.
This is your organization. Angel Flight West would not be what it was in 2013 without your passionate help and support. Please share this with your family, friends, and community. Help us tell our story so more people can participate in the life changing work we are doing. We can’t wait to see our accomplishments in 2014 and beyond!

Jill Dannis is one of our newest mission operations coordinators. She originally came to AFW as an intern in the spring of 2011 after seeing a job post from AFW on the Loyola Marymount University student career services website. As an intern that spring, Jill did general office work while also training to be a mission coordinator to assist with the increase in flights over the busy summer months. She worked at AFW as a mission coordinator during the summers of 2011 and 2012, mostly working on summer camp mission coordination. She was offered a full-time position as a mission coordinator upon graduating in May 2013 with a degree in Sociology.
Jill had been heavily involved in community service in college and interested in nonprofits as a result of her studies in sociology, so she was looking to combine her interests. After graduation she thought she might do a year of post-graduate service abroad, but through her previous work at the organization she had “gotten really attached to AFW, so when the offer came it gave me an opportunity of doing service in a more permanent way.”
AFW has also given Jill a chance to “see what a great impact the organization has on both the passengers and pilots–not only the people who are going to treatment, but it also gives meaning to the pilots and what they like to do.” AFW thanks Jill for helping to continue the service we provide.
