Warhawk Air Museum Expansion
It’s a new era for the Warhawk Air Museum, and we want YOU to be a part of it!
WE’RE EXPANDING! It’s time to further our mission to “educate the world about the cost of freedom, and honor those who paid its price” by creating a space dedicated to veterans of the Global War on Terror (GWOT) and Post 9/11 period—something for which we currently lack the space.
We have the plans, and now we need YOU to help us make it a reality!
Expansion will include building a new maintenance hangar and repurposing the existing maintenance hangar into a world-class annex dedicated to the post-9/11 veteran community. The new hangar has been designed and we are hoping to break ground this year! The total cost of this project is $3.5 million – of which we have raised $2.7 million. We’re on a mission to raise the remaining $800,000 this year–can you help us reach our goal?
The Warhawk Air Museum is proud to announce the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation has donated $350,000 in support of our Capital Campaign to build the new Post 9/11 – Global War on Terror wing. This new wing and renovation will add 32,000 sq. ft. to the museum campus and cost $3.5 million. This new wing will link generations and acknowledge the service of our GWOT Veterans as the Museum continues to preserve, honor, and teach the veterans’ history and service to our nation. “The Warhawk Air Museum is a great asset to the state of Idaho and to Mission43,” said Dan Nelson, Program Officer for the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation. “We support the leadership potential of veterans and military spouses who have chosen to live in Idaho after their military service, and this expansion will offer incredible opportunities to our military and civilian communities.”
The Warhawk Air Museum provides a place, in Idaho, for personal collections and stories to be displayed to the public. With this expansion, we will become a home for military gatherings and expanded student field trips. The Global War on Terror (GWOT) Veterans and their families will join the hallowed grounds of the Warhawk Air Museum under the mission and promise to teach the world about the cost of freedom and honor those who paid the price. We are very grateful to the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation for their gift and humbled by their support and enthusiasm as the museum moves into the future.
