The AMA Foundation raises money for several funds for programs outside of membership, including club support. One program that runs as a result of the club support fund is the AMA Chartered Club Recognition and Reward Program. The Academy of Model Aeronautics encourages clubs across the country to take part in events and serve the community in ways that will entice community members to learn more about the hobby of model aviation. To encourage clubs to promote model aviation, the AMA offers clubs cash incentives for positive local media coverage for a public event, public service, club announcement, or other coverage.
