Our Mission

The AMA Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization supporting the Academy of Model Aeronautics. The Foundation's mission is to pursue and inspire our donor base of members and partners to make impactful philanthropic gifts, grants, and scholarships.


Our Vision

AMA Foundation supports a future where model aviation continues to celebrate, advance, and inspire the next generation of aviators and innovators. In doing so, we collectively secure the future of all forms of aviation and aerospace.

The AMA Foundation was founded in 2013 with a mission to support the AMA's goals of promoting the safe operation of model aircraft, fostering innovation and creativity in aviation design, and providing a welcoming community for aviation enthusiasts.

At the Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation, we believe that model aviation provides a unique and exciting opportunity for individuals of all ages to learn about aerodynamics, design, and technology. Our programs support the National Model Aviation Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of model aviation artifacts in the world. 

We also provide scholarships and grants to help aspiring students and clubs attend school, improve their flying sites, expose the community to the hobby, rebuild after natural disasters, and so much more.

We are proud to be a part of the AMA community and to share our love of model aviation with the world. Our organization is made up of passionate and dedicated donors and members who are committed to fostering a safe and welcoming environment for all model aviation enthusiasts. We welcome anyone who share our love of aviation to join us in our mission!
