Wreyford Family Foundation
Matching Grant Challenge
The Wreyford Family Foundation has issued a matching grant challenge to the USS Hornet Museum. For each dollar raised by the museum, the Wreyford Foundation will match it, up to the maximum challenge amount of $100,000. This grant is specifically linked to a long-range goal of the USS Hornet Museum — the relocation of the ship to a pier with better public access. A more visible and accessible location will translate to higher visitor numbers and the resulting revenue gains.
The grant proceeds will be used to fund a professional and thorough investigation before a final decision can be made to determine if moving the aircraft carrier is feasible and what locations are best suited. Please consider supporting the USS Hornet Museum with your tax-deductible contribution as we pursue this critical feasibility study. The challenge grant runs through 2012. Donations can be made the following ways:
