Angel Flight Central alleviates burden of long-distance medical travel for what is often lifesaving care.

Bill Keen, CRPC®, founder and CEO of Keen Wealth Advisors, serves as a volunteer pilot and longtime board member of AFC. As a volunteer, Keen works closely with key personnel in the organization. His wife Carissa Keen also takes a leading role in the organization. This year the couple is serving as co-event committee chairs. Once again this year, Keen Wealth Advisors took a leading role in supporting the gala as the "presenting sponsor." The firm has made a total donation of $100,000 since 2021.

"We are honored to be a part of this wonderful, life-impacting organization," said Keen. "Credit goes to the leadership and many volunteers of Angel Flight Central, as well as my entire team at Keen Wealth Advisors who support me in dedicating time and resources. This is teamwork at its finest in furthering Angel Flight Central's mission to serve people in need by arranging charitable flights for health care or other humanitarian purposes."

A WORTHY CHARITY, SERVING PATIENTS IN NEED

Since 1995, Angel Flight Central has served people in need by arranging charitable flights for health care or other humanitarian purposes with the help of volunteer pilots and donors. Originally known as Wings Over Mid-America, Inc., Angel Flight Central was founded in August 1995 with a handful of passionate volunteer pilots hoping to use their flying talents to help a total of two passengers per month. By the end of 2022, Angel Flight Central will have flown over 31,000 flights covering over 10 million charitable miles, helping passengers in need with a base of 1000 pilots and ground volunteers.  During 2022, the organization averaged 213 flights a month.

"Keen Wealth Advisors is proud to align ourselves with the Angel Flight Central organization with our time, talent and resources. The help that this organization provides has alleviated the burden of long-distance medical travel for those who must travel for treatment outside of their home area. In many cases this is lifesaving treatment," said Keen.

"Surprisingly, there is still much more capacity for free flights for those who qualify," Keen said. "AFC and I would like to get the word out to the public: there are volunteer pilots standing by to helped those in need get to the best medical facilities and treatments."
