The Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable foundation (Tax ID # 33-0345440) that supports the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. The Foundation is 100% funded by amazing donors, sponsors and guests who attend our fundraisers and respond to our annual appeal. We could not operate the museum if we were restricted to government funding, which covers just a skeletal crew to help maintain the aircraft and the artifacts.
We restore aircraft, preserve stories, interview Marine aviators, visit classrooms and more. We are always looking for volunteers to augment our programs.
