Skypass Foundation exists to raise communal and humanitarian awareness in the arenas of medicine, global missions, senior care and other socially responsible endeavors. Our mission is to educate, empower and equip, by being the head that informs, the heart that cares and the hands that serve the community, both locally and globally.
Skypass Foundation was established by Victor Abraham, Chairman of the Skypass Group, in honor and memory of his late father, Capt. P.S. Abraham. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, Capt. Abraham’s influence was extended in his latter years by expert diagnosis and treatment at the hands of one of the most respected neuroscientists in the world, Dr. Shilpa Chitnis of UT Southwestern. Together with Dr. Chitnis, Victor Abraham started the Skypass Foundation in 2015, with the vision to partner with UTSW and provide resources to those afflicted with Parkinson’s.
In addition to the Parkinson’s cause, the Skypass Foundation serves as the philanthropic extension of the entire Skypass Group of Companies, providing resources in the areas of global missions, senior care, and more.
The Skypass Foundation office is located just west of downtown Dallas in Irving, Texas.
