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