What do I get for my sponsorship?
Your contributions help preserve, in flying condition, the CAF’s wonderful and rare collection of aircraft. Your money helps protect and display them as a tribute to America and the men and women who built, serviced and flew them. There is more, of course, and when the propellers turn, the engines belch smoke and the thunder begins, they speak of what your money will do.
The “What do I get” part of the question depends on how strongly you feel that these symbols of American Aviation Heritage be maintained and preserved for future generations - - - that future generations possess a part of history that can be touched, heard, smelled and seen. It is how important to you that we remind present and future generations of this Nation’s accomplishments in the defense of FREEDOM. Your name associated with this effort speaks volumes about your commitment to country and community.
“What do I get for my money?” Just maybe it will be something money can’t buy. Maybe you will simply feel good about your country and maybe you will be helping others to feel good about your country - - - PRICELESS.
The Commemorative Air Force
The CAF is a 501(c)(3) charitable museum organization whose purpose is preserving America’s military aviation heritage. We are dedicated to preserving the aircraft and other memorabilia as a living memorial to the many men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States and other countries whose sacrifices have resulted in the freedoms we enjoy today. We hope to instill in current and future generations a feeling of pride in country and an appreciation of the fact that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
Air shows are a primary means of presenting this living history to the public. The CAF Bluebonnet Airshow, presented by the Highland Lakes Squadron, has been held every year since 1990. The show has grown into a much anticipated and well-attended community event.
This year we are asking for your support as a sponsor for the Air Show. We are chartered as an IRS Code 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation. The Bluebonnet Air Show is an educational activity and this means that each dollar donated is tax exempt and therefore helps both you and us. Your sponsorship support makes it possible to keep these fabulous aircraft flying and performing in air shows.
