I give to the AMA Foundation in memory of my grandfather who was a modeler and a great inspiration.  The model aviation hobby has done so much for me and the AMA Foundation is the best way for me to give back so they can use my donation to help inspire more youth to get involved in the hobby.

Ryan Elmore, AMA Foundation Donor

The [National Model Aviation Museum] does not generate a profit for AMA; it relies in part on donations from members to help develop new exhibits and services for the modeling community.  As such, it is a worthy cause.  I became a Museum Patron, and I encourage you to do the same.

I think it is important to donate to the foundation because it helps model aviation grow with scholarships, promotes model aviation with public education programs and keeps clubs active with grants and disaster relief.

Torchbearer, AMA Foundation donor

Flight is a way to grow that is ever learning and keeps your mind occupied.

Doyle Blevins, AMA Torchbearer

My passion for the hobby 'STEMS' from educational and public outreach as a way to advocate for AMA and aeromodeling. Being a Torchbearer is a simple and meaningful way to support the AMA Foundation and our diverse programming.

Daren Hudson, AMA District I AVP

In this age of modern electronics ... we need to educate [youth] and pass on our tradition of flying. Pass the Torch! We’re hoping a lot of other members join this worthwhile program.

It’s money I can’t take with me, so I’d rather the museum have the funds.

If it wasn’t for AMA, we might be out of business […] We really need AMA more than anything right now

"The AMA Foundation is vital to aeromodeling's growth and I -we- should all want to be part of it."
