Founded in 1996, Angel Flight Northeast coordinates free flights so children and adults can access medical care for as long and as often as needed. We are a volunteer corps of over 1,000 private pilots and Earth Angels who combine our love of flying with the spirit of grassroots volunteerism by flying patients and their families to the critical health care they need. We provide free air transportation in private aircrafts by volunteer pilots so that children and adults may access life-saving medical care free of charge. We are also a vital mode of transportation for organs, blood and for patients awaiting organ transplants. Since our founding, we have answered over 65,000 flight requests and have flown more than 13 million miles. This year marks a milestone year for Angel Flight NE as we celebrate our 20th year of service.

2009-12 01/05/2011 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Wednesday, January 5, 2011

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Angel Flight Northeast on March 1, 2012 because the Donor Advisory had been in place for more than a year (since January 5, 2011) and because the issue that prompted the Donor Advisory has been resolved.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this  charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • The Massachusetts attorney general’s office had determined that Angel Flight Northeast’s governance structure did not assure an independent board that was free from management’s direction. In November 2010, the attorney general and the charity reached an agreement which is explained on the attorney general’s site here and here.
