Collings Foundation

NEWS FLASH! The Collings Foundation is proud to announce that our Douglas A-1E Skyraider will be joining the Wings of Freedom Tour for the California part of the tour from April 26 through June 10! We are now booking 25-minute flight experiences at visits around California (see schedule at: www.collingsfoundation.org/events/category/wings-of-freedom-tour/)

Flights are $900 per person for the cockpit seat and $450 per person for the each of the four rear seats. The participant in the cockpit will not be able to take the controls, it is only a ride. We need to have a minimum of one person in front and two passengers in back, OR four passengers in back to make a flight go. Much like the B-25 and P-51, we can fly flights in the Skyraider at anytime during the day. Please note that passenger compartment access requires passengers to be able bodied, as you need to climb unassisted on the wing and up the side of the fuselage.

Call 978-562-9182 to book a flight on the Skyraider or any other aircraft on the tour in California - details at www.collingsfoundation.org/flight-experiences/

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.

Give to our Annual Fund

Do you want to help the most pressing needs at the Collings Foundation? Consider a donation to our Annual Fund. All donations to the Annual Fund help support year-end operations, maintenance, restorations, and development of our educational program planning for the next year.

Membership & Sponsorship Levels

There are many contribution and membership levels you may contribute under; each with their own distinct benefits.

Contributions may be made through cash, check or money order, or Mastercard or Visa. Donations of appreciated stock are also accepted.

Continue your support!
If you are already a Member, Sponsor or Donor we encourage you to continue to donate and take your commitment to the next level. These larger donations make a substantial difference in our ability to develop new and unique programs.

  • Gold Plane Sponsor: $25,000 – $49,999

Monetary donations are essential and our greatest need. There are a variety of ways to support the Collings Foundation. Estate provisions, IRA payments, foundation grants and stock are always appreciated. Over ninety-five cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our programs including operations, maintenance, restoration and endowment for the future. With your help we can “Keep ‘Em Flying”.

Corporate Sponsors are crucial to the operation of the Collings Foundation. Their donations keep our aircraft flying and well equipped to operate for years to come.
