You are here:  ...Are you lost?


XPLANE tries to take an active role in our community. XPLANE and/or its employees are involved in some way with the following organizations and causes...

Big Brothers Big Sisters | “Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is the nation's oldest and largest youth mentoring organization. Since 1904, caring adult volunteers have been helping millions of children reach their full potential and fulfill their dreams. Their programs match kids with mentors who provide meaningful friendships and share fun experiences.” Learn more about how you can make a Big difference by visiting their website.

Toys for Tots | “The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity, independent of the Marine Corps, is the authorized fund raising and support organization for the Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation provides the funding and support needed for successful annual toy collection and distribution campaigns.”

YMCA of Greater St. Louis | XPLANE employees receive a “Good Health” benefit every month that they can put towards a fitness club, wall climbing or any other membership that would benefit them physically. A vast majority of us belong to the YMCA and we are a contributing sponsor to their Partner Campaign. Contributions made to this campaign go to a special fund for local kids and their families who otherwise would not be able to afford a membership.

St. Louis Effort For Aids | “St. Louis Effort for Aids provides education on the prevention of HIV infection and support services for those directly as well and indirectly affected by HIV.”

Link and Think | “Link and Think is an observance of World AIDS Day in the personal web publishing communities. Formerly 'A Day With(out) Weblogs,' the project involves hundreds of webloggers, journalers, diarists and other personal website publishers, each linking to resources about HIV/AIDS or publishing personal stories about how the AIDS pandemic has affected them.”

Operation Brightside | “Operation Brightside is a not-for-profit public-private partnership working toward a cleaner, more attractive environment for the St. Louis community.”

St. Louis Bike Park | “St. Louis Bike Park is the country's first and only fully-insured, facility for BMX dirt jumping and mountain biking. St. Louis Bike Park Inc., a 501 (C)(3) Missouri non-profit corporation, was formed to ensure the bike park's existence and to continue providing riders a safe and free recreational trail facility by managing the bike park profesionally. We feel that if a child's interest is captivated by a healthy and safe activity, money should not be a determining factor as to whether or not he or she can participate in such confidence building, self rewarding, challenging, physically beneficial sports like BMX dirt jumping and mountain biking.”

National Parks Conservation Association | “National Parks Conservation Association is a non-profit organization working to protect parks for present and future generations. Since 1919, the National Parks Conservation Association has been the sole voice of the American people in the fight to safeguard the scenic beauty, wildlife, and historical and cultural treasures of the largest and most diverse park system in the world.”

The Nature Conservancy | “Since 1951, The Nature Conservancy has been working with communities, businesses and people like you to protect more than 92 million acres around the world. TNC's Mission: To preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.”
