How can I help support the Collings Foundation?
It costs over $60,000 to replace just one B-24 engine…
Operating costs on the B-17 have reached over $4,000 per hour of flight time…
F-4 operating costs have soared to over $9,000 per hour and show no sign of reducing…
…These are but some of the reasons why the Collings Foundation needs your help.
Yearly the Collings Foundation relies on the support of corporate and personal donations, monetary and in-kind donations. Any help to defray operations expenses, equipment replacement, and maintenance costs preserves the mission of the Collings Foundation, and enables us to keep it alive for future generations.
Yet we find the costs increase with each year and donations never seem to cover it all. Now more than ever, your contribution counts.
There are many ways you can help, and we offer many options to add value to your donation. As a 501c3 Non-Profit Educational Foundation, all contributions may be eligible for corporate matching funds to stretch your contribution farther.
