To all the great followers of Tailwinds of Hope, the Inaugural Captain Caps Clay Shoot is scheduled for May 10, 2024. More details to follow!!!

Tailwinds of Hope – Zachary Michael Capra Foundation was started to honor our son Zachary Michael Capra. One of the primary scholarships established was to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the amount of $15,000. Our goal since the beginning was to endow the scholarship, something that we thought would take several years to accomplish. It was important to us that this scholarship would be available forever to continue to honor Zachary’s legacy and love of flying. We are so overwhelmed with emotions, in a short four years since starting the foundation we have met our goal to endow this scholarship. In December Tailwinds of Hope donated $45,000 to ERAU for the Zachary Capra Endowed Memorial Aviation Scholarship. We also donated another $15,000 to keep the current scholarship for one more year before the endowed scholarship begins.

We have an incredible donor base and so many families and friends that have enabled us to raise an incredible amount of funds. This shows what an incredible impression Zachary has made on all of us. Zachary touched so many lives in his short but impactful life. We all have stories that exemplify Zachary’s love, zest, and drive to live that life and continues to drive us to continue our mission to give back to the community. We are honored and humbled and filled with gratitude with the generous donations that have made this all possible.
