We’re Driving Charitable Efforts Through RC.

"Hobbies for Good” (H4G), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization distinct from Horizon Hobby, focuses on leveraging the passion within the RC hobby community to drive charitable efforts make a difference in people’s lives. Our mission is deeply rooted in the idea that the joy and camaraderie found in radio control hobbies can be a powerful catalyst for positive change.


Hobbies for Good is the charitable arm of Horizon Hobby that collaborates with Horizon Hobby on select initiatives. Horizon Hobby employees see the bigger picture and realize they’re part of something bigger than themselves. Whenever possible, we strive to make a difference by using hobbies as a platform to help people. We regularly donate our RC products to help charitable organizations raise money for great causes and send RC aircraft and vehicles overseas so members of our military can have a little fun now and then while serving so far from home. 

Horizonites are always sharing their passion for hobbies by helping out in schools, youth groups, and clubs with added Horizon Hobby benefits like. employee matching for approved charities and scholarships that benefit the broader RC and modeling communities. Other Horizonite initiatives have raised money for cancer research, provided food and shelter for families in need, and provided American Red Cross contributions for victims of natural disasters. 

In our community, holding events to bring people together in the RC world.


Hobbies for Good works on several levels to support causes and interests that matter to the RC community and beyond. See our good in action!
