About Foundation

About AMA Foundation

amafoundation-logoThe Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation, led by its board of directors, will serve as a supporting organization that will fundraise and grant funds exclusively for and on behalf of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, founded in 1936.

The AMA exists to continue the important ongoing development of aeromodeling through education, promotion and community-based programming.  The AMA is devoted to inspiring the young and young-at-heart to pursue a hobby that will inspire creativity and advance learning through the use of hands-on applications.   The purposes of the Foundation will be to fundraise and make grants to AMA to support its charitable and educational programs and services. As the AMA Foundation is recognized as an educational and scientific nonprofit organization, contributions may be tax-deductible.

Make Your Year-End Gift!


It’s true; when you give to the AMA Foundation, your gift directly impacts real people: K-8 students learning about aviation through AMA Quick Projects; club members repairing their site after a tornado or flood; high school seniors making their way to university with an AMA scholarship; clubs teaching and sharing model aviation with their communities.

It’s also true that your gift upholds important values and institutions. When you give, you champion friendship, self-confidence, determination, and grit. A sense of community and a spirit of curiosity. When you give, you empower students, adults, clubs, and educators to experience the joy of model aviation.

In this season of giving, we ask for your support; we rely on generous donors to carry forth our mission.

How will you uphold the joy of flight?
