When tragedy strikes a member of our pilot group, the Delta pilots have always been there to support one another. The Flower Fund was set up to show our support for our fellow pilots and their families during times of grief. To express our sincerest sympathies, the Flower Fund will send flowers or, if requested, a donation to the organization of the family’s choosing in lieu of flowers.
Learn how to donate to your local council below. With all donations, please make sure to include your name for accurate record keeping purposes and so the council can send out a thank you. If you have any questions about the Flower Fund or need more information on how to donate, please contact your LEC status representatives.

The Flower Fund is 100% funded through generous non-tax-deductible contributions from the pilot group. The Fund cannot be financially supported from the LEC or MEC budget. This small gesture from the members of your local council and all 14,000+ pilots can have a positive impact for someone going through a personal tragedy, and is an opportunity to show how much we care for our fellow pilots and their families. Please consider donating today, and thank you for your continued support!
