What is the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation?

Founded in 1966, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is the nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and fund-raising organization that supports the development of the National Museum of Naval Aviation. NAMF has more than 13,000 dues-paying members, over 1,200 of whom live in the Pensacola area. The Foundation is financially self-supporting through various revenue-generating operations--such as the Museum's IMAX Theater and the Flightdeck Museum Store--so that 100 percent of all donations is used for the development of the Museum and support of associated educational programs. NAMF has raised tens of millions of dollars over the years in support of the Museum.

In fulfilling it's educational mission, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation publishes a magazine of Naval Aviation history called "Foundation" and hosts an annual symposium at the Museum. Among the Foundations most important and far-reaching initiatives is the operation of the Flight Adventure Deck and the development of the upcoming National Flight Academy: a week-long school for 7th through 12th graders that promises to be a revolution in science and technology education.
