Where Flight Begins

Growing. Helping. Connecting

At Spirit, we’re proud of our heritage, but we’re also proud of the way we serve by helping, growing and connecting our communities. We believe in the power of innovative solutions, partnerships and programs that bring communities together. 

Each year, Spirit employees and the company donate several million dollars through corporate grants and our employee-led Good Neighbor Fund, and thousands of hours of service through our Team Spirit employee volunteerism program. 

Volunteering Across the Globe

Volunteerism is an integral part of Spirit’s company culture. Spirit employees around the world give in a variety of ways, collectively and individually, lending their time and talents to strengthen our communities.
