The Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc.

The Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc. was chartered in 1960 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the purpose of assisting the United States Air Force Museum (now the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force™) in its efforts to engage and educate the public on the important role of the USAF in our nation's defense.

We serve as a philanthropic corporation that assists in the development and expansion of the facilities of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. In addition, the Foundation provides funds each year to the Museum for special projects and underwrites several programs involving a wide range of activities geared toward education, volunteer support, special events, and promotional efforts. The National Museum of the United States Air ForceTM is a USAF facility that is funded by the Air Force for normal operations and maintenance costs.

The Corporation is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes as defined in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are deductible under section 170 and the Foundation is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522 of the Internal Revenue Code. Persons desiring to provide a monetary donation in support of the Museum should visit our Make a Gift page or direct their contributions to:
