How to Contribute

The American Air Museums’ mission becomes more urgent with each day, as the number of surviving veterans of the Second World War dwindles and the public’s memory of their service and sacrifice fades. Preserving their legacy requires significant resources, and we couldn’t do it without the support of individuals like you who understand and appreciate the extraordinary experiences of of American and British Servicemen during the Second World War.

There are two ways to contribute to the American Air Museum, which are listed below. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and allows us to serve thousands of visitors every year onsite at the museum as well as millions more through our online archive.

  • Educate future generations about US airmen and their heroism. Your support will help us expand our education programs to ensure those who have little knowledge of the Second World War and Cold War - especially the more than 100,000 people who visit us each year - remember those who fought and died for their freedom.
  • Provide visitors with a memorable Museum experience. Your support will help the Museum maintain our building, conserve our collection of rare historical aircraft and other artifacts, and inspire and educate the 400,000 visitors who come through our doors each year.
  • Bring the stories of America’s airmen to those unable to visit the Museum. Your support will help millions of people to virtually visit the Museum through the online archives - to browse our extensive photo collection, upload their own images, learn about US airmen and women and the aircraft they built and flew, and much more.
