Institutional Investors

Grants and in-kind gifts from foundations, institutional partners and local government agencies -- along with the support of individuals -- make it possible for the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation to fulfill our mission to:

  • Support the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum
  • Preserve the history of U.S. Marine Corps aviation
  • Honor the service of its personnel and inspire in all generations an appreciation for America’s freedoms.

We are pleased to highlight the institutions that are playing a vital role in helping us sustain American heritage and educate the leaders of tomorrow.
