The National Naval Aviation Museum is alive with history and adventure. Each year, visitors by the thousands marvel at our restored aircraft, authentic memorabilia and unique adventures. The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) for-cause organization and is responsible for fundraising and development to support those one-of-a-kind experiences.


The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is the sole benefactor to the National Naval Aviation Museum—and the fuel that allows the Museum to take flight. The Foundation provides resources to support Museum operations, expansion and activity. The Foundation works diligently to raise funds through gifts and memberships. All funding, aside from Foundation staffing and operational costs, contributes to Museum expansion, aircraft preservation, conservation and maintenance, development of new exhibits and support of day to day functions. This includes custodial services, marketing, operation of the Museum’s various attractions (such as our Naval Aviation Memorial Giant Screen Theater, flight simulators, Blue Angels 4D Experience and Flight Deck gift shop), as well as the production of major events at the Museum. The Foundation also supports the advancement of STEM education through the National Flight Academy, a cutting edge, aviation-themed learning experience.
