About this guide

Project Uplift USA, Inc. is a North Carolina 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. We are led by an all volunteer board with no paid employees, which means we can direct all of our sponsor funding and underwriting directly to our key program services.
Project Uplift USA has three primary service program areas: outreach to military families and children with mobility challenges, educational programs, and remembering and honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their nation.

First, we provide hot air balloon experiences to military families and children living with mobility challenges. Where possible, we engage other veterans and family members participate as ground crew or passengers as part of our shared experience, team-oriented approach to healing and growth.
Second, our FAA certificated pilots offer creative educational experiences in K-12 classrooms and at youth programs using hot air balloons and/or modeling programs to demonstrate practical applications of STEM-based subject matter in a fun and engaging manner.

Third, Project Uplift USA is dedicated promoting Americanism and volunteerism; and, to honoring the concept of "service above self" embodied by our nation's military and their family members. We do this through our annual Freedom Balloon Fest held on Memorial Day weekend. Freedom Balloon Fest is an admission free, all volunteer community event supported by our sponsors and donors. The goal of the event is to remember the sacrifice of those who have died in service to our nation, to honor the service of all our military and their family members, and to do so in a spirit of community celebration of our freedom.
