Support Our Future

In order to ensure the future of the Museum, we have embarked on many long-range projects. These include new buildings, upgrading existing buildings and more aircraft acquisitions. Like any organism, growth is essential. You can help support our growth by contributing to our efforts. These are some of the planned and ongoing projects the Museum has initiated.

  • '41 Fighter Fund
  • B-23 Dragon Restoration Project
  • C-119 Flying Boxcar Restoration Project
  • C-47 W7 D-Day Vet Restoration project
  • 1941 HAG Visitor Center Expansion
  • Additional Hanger Construction

Our Museum relies on three main sources of funding; Membership, Donations and Fund-raisers, and Planned Giving. There are many ways to help support the Museum. Cash donations, will bequests, trusts, life insurance and IRA beneficiary designations are a few. You can be a part of our long-range plan and help ensure our growth in the future. Thank you for considering a donation to the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum.
