Phillips 66 Aviation, a refiner and supplier of jet fuels and avgas to private, commercial and military aviation, awarded a $23,460 donation to Corporate Angel Network (CAN), the only charitable organization in the U.S. whose sole mission is to help cancer patients access the best possible medical treatment by arranging free air travel on corporate aircraft.

“We have supported Corporate Angel Network for 13 years and are honored to be a longtime partner with an organization whose mission helps save lives,” said Sunny Lopez, Manager, Phillips 66 Aviation. “Our donation can make a direct impact on lives and relieve the stress and financial burden that many families face in a time of need. We look forward to continuing our commitment to the organization and helping even more patients receive immediate access to cancer treatment.”

Phillips 66 Aviation presented the donation at the 2023 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), as part of its annual sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award. The award recognizes corporations and flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants of CAN. With over 500 participating major corporations, the award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s recipients include Hertz, Savoya, Nationwide and Nestle Purina.

“The Corporate Angel Award is a unique way for CAN to honor companies who have gone above and beyond to support cancer patients,” said Courtney Easton, Director of Marketing and Communications, Corporate Angel Network. “We are grateful for our trusted partner, Phillips 66 Aviation, who gives us the opportunity to recognize partners who have helped make our mission possible since our founding 42 years ago.”

Since 2010, Phillips 66 Aviation has donated more than $260,000 to CAN and has helped numerous families receive access to critical care. Corporate Angel Network has completed 67,000 cancer patient flights since its inception in 1981, averaging more than 130 flights per month or more than 1,600 flights per year.
