LIFT was founded as a not-for-profit logistics provider for fellow 501c3 foundations and other Non-Government Organizations responding to disasters. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver the impossible in trying times. LIFT is an organization that affords responders access to: general aviation aircraft, heavy jets, helicopters, small & large vessels and ground transportation to bring people and cargo to disaster sites. We strive to deliver these assets to NGO’s for free or at a reduced cost whenever possible.

Mission Statement:

To effectively assist in the transportation of first-responders, relief workers and their cargoes to disaster sites.


100% of all tax deductible donations received by LIFT are used to support the transportation of humanitarian aid to natural disaster sites around the globe.
