Annual Giving

Annual Giving

The USS Hornet Museum is a non-profit organization that relies on a variety of funding sources for its exhibits and programs. The Museum is not supported in any way by regular grants from city, county, state or federal sources. Although some of our costs are covered by revenue generating activities, donations are required to assist with exhibit development, aircraft restoration, education programs, scholarships, and ship repair and maintenance.

Annual gifts from friends like you help fund all aspects of the Aircraft Carrier Hornet Foundation’s mission: to preserve and honor the legacy of the USS HORNET in order to educate the public and inspire American youth.

Donations to the annual fund are unrestricted and especially valuable in enabling the Museum to meet its educational and operational goals. Contributions also support the restoration and preservation of this national treasure. Make a Gift Today via our secure on-line store! Or send your contribution to:

Aircraft Carrier Hornet Foundation
PO Box 460
Alameda, CA 94501

We thank our members and donors for their loyalty and enthusiasm, and look forward to working with new friends as we grow as a world-class air, space, and science museum.

Will your employer match your gift?

Many companies participate in a matching-gift program for charitable gifts made by their employees. Check with your employer's Human Resources Department to see if your generosity will be made even greater through a match by your employer.
