Collings Foundation

Good turnout at the Chelmsford, MA 4th of July parade this morning. ...

Plainly put, the Collings Foundation would not exist without the dedicated help of our volunteers. Whether they are “manning” the PX as a part of the nationwide bomber tour, turning wrenches on one of our many planes, maintaining support equipment for airplanes such as the F-4, or answering the phones and pushing papers in the office; their time and talents are the treasure that keeps the Foundation going.

Every time a Collings Foundation engine is heard overhead, remember that it is there because of the thousands of hours our volunteers put in throughout the year. Like the dedicated crews in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, they stand-by and support the aircraft without complaint.

We extend a heart-felt thank you to all of our volunteers.

We are always looking for volunteers to help. Below are some of our volunteer opportunities that you may be able to help with:

  • Become a local tour stop coordinator, or help a coordinator on a B-17 and B-24 tour stop in your local area.
  • The Collings Foundation Houston, TX base is continually looking for people to help support the many restorations and aircraft that they care for. If you are interested, please contact Rick Harris.
  • Limited slots for volunteers on the B-17 and B-24 tour are available. Please email your interest toinfo@collingsfoundation.org with a brief introduction and list of skills.
  • The Stow, MA Headquarters of the Collings Foundation has some volunteer slots available on a limited basis, please email us at info@collingsfoundation.org for information.
