Giving to the Pacific Coast Air Museum

The Rewards of Giving
However you choose to support the Pacific Coast Air Museum (PCAM), you will be joining with us in our dream of creating a world-class aviation museum. Because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your gift may qualify for a federal and/or state income tax charitable deduction.

The Reasons for Giving
Since our founding in 1989, the Pacific Coast Air Museum has enjoyed exceptional growth, both in membership and in the acquisition of historic aircraft and artifacts. We have also expanded our Education Programs for children and young adults, have increased our capacity to repair and restore aircraft and artifacts, and have outgrown our current facilities.

One example of how we invest donated funds is the creation several years ago of our 9/11 First Responder F-15 Eagle memorial exhibit. This professionally designed and built educational and inspirational exhibit enshrines our F-15A Eagle aircraft (on loan from the National Museum of the United States Air Force) in honor of those who responded and those who perished on September 11, 2001. It tells the story of heroism in the air that fateful day in our nation’s history.

A New Museum Building

We have outgrown our current facilities. The museum members, led by our volunteer Board of Directors, have begun raising funds to construct new and greatly expanded facilities to better house our collection. Our vision for a great aviation museum is to provide a comprehensive look at the past, present and future of aviation. Our programs and displays are designed to appeal to enthusiasts of all ages with a desire to increase their knowledge of aviation history, principles of flight, and the stories of the heroic aviators whose lives we honor and celebrate.

We welcome you to become our partner in these adventures!

The Opportunities for Giving
While we can best serve our mission with donations of un-designated funds, we appreciate every gift, and have many opportunities for you to tailor your gift to your interests. We hope you will find something that “fits” in the following list of options.

Museum Operations:

Let us decide how to best to apply your gift to the current work of the museum, and the important activities that further our mission.

Hattie Stone Museum Building Fund:

Help us realize our dream of improved and expanded museum facilities and exhibit space in Santa Rosa, California. Through this fund we will have the facilities to house some of our more sensitive displays in a protected environment, and have more space to display our entire collection of aircraft, artifacts, exhibits and books.

Youth Education Programs:

Through our many partnerships with other aviation-related organizations, and with local area schools, we have developed many educational programs for youth of all ages, as well as young adults. Your donation will help us to train more docents and educators so we can continue to expand our offerings and see more children every year.

Airplane Restoration Fund:

Do you really love one of our aircraft? Do you want to help us continue to obtain and restore new aircraft? Then this is the fund for you! This fund allows you to give generally to our restoration program, or you may support any one of our classic aircraft and aviation artifacts.

In Memory of (your loved one’s name here) :

Many of us have – or have had – family members or friends who bravely served and worked to help defend our way of life, and build a prosperous nation for us and future generations. Let us know if you have a specific person you would like to remember with a Memorial Gift.

Heritage Society:

By remembering the museum in your estate plans, you help us to be here to continue our work into the future. Generations of your family and others will be enriched by the preservation of history, education and inspiration of our young people, and honoring of past generations of heroic aviators.

Please contact us if you have questions or concerns. We are here to help you realize your charitable intention, and to thank you for supporting our work.

Planned Giving
Planned giving allows you to share in the future of the museum with a gift that is deferred to a later date. The advantage of many future gifts is that they can be structured so you can make a more significant gift than you may think, while providing yourself with a financial benefit now.

Should you wish to leave us a gift through your estate, there are many ways to do this. A simple bequest can specify a gift of cash, or other property, through your Will. Other opportunities include Living Trusts, a Charitable Remainder Trust, or a beneficiary designation in a Life Insurance contract, Retirement Plan, IRA, or any other contract for which a beneficiary can be named.

If you have already included us in your future plans, we hope you will let us know, so we may recognize your gift and express our appreciation. You may also serve as an inspiration to others who may be thinking about including us in their plans.

If you would like to discuss your wishes with us, we would love to hear from you!
