Near the Finish Line!



 $1186 CAME IN LAST WEEK! As of Tuesday 16 September, donations total $37,024! Last week’s donations were under the $1400 per week we needed, so down the stretch we need to pick up the pace.
Just under $3000 to go. You can “pick up” the other 180 plus fellow supporters who already donated (some twice!). Donate today and make sure their donations were not in vain. Every donation will help reach that $40,000 finish line.

Your support ensures that everyone will continue to enjoy and learn from their visits to the PBY-Naval Air Museum.

Mid-Year Donations Continue!



GOOD WEEK LAST WEEK! As of Tuesday 9 September, donations total $35,838! With the $25,000 match achieved, the total raised so far is nearly $61,000. Thank you to everyone who stepped up to help this week.

That $61,000 can become $80,000 if we hit our $40,000 donation mark. With about 3 weeks to go, there is only $4,200 to go.

Last week $3600 came and now we only need to average $1400 a week. This can be done! Check the car cup holders, the jackets in the hall closet and the bottom of those purses – all that loose change […]

Mid-Year Donations Success!




WOW! You did it. Blew right by $25,000! As of Tuesday 27 August, donations total just over $32,200. That means the total for this appeal is $57,000 plus. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you for the great job.

Your response is so impressive that $15,000 is being added to the match – if we get to $40,000 by 30 September!

If you have not sent your donation in, please join our supporters and help push us over the $40,000 line. Reaching that goal will mean $40,000 to operating funds and $40,000 to our capital account to […]

Mid-Year Donations


Just under $20,000 at $19,931 in the fourth week of the campaign. We are nearly 80% of the way to the goal of $25,000 of unrestricted funds for operations! Well done to you, our supporters.

As of today, we are at a combined total of $39,862 unrestricted donations plus an equal matching capital donation. HOWEVER, we have to hit that $25 thousand  target to get the match. So, if your donation form slipped under papers on your desk, please dig it out and send it on – every donation matters: no matter how small. You can help keep the simulators […]
