Friends of the Museum

The Norton AFB Museum is dependent on a large part, to Donations and Contributions to assist us or meet our financial obligations. We try to recognize these Friends and Sponsors as best as we can. Inside the Museum, we have a large display identifying these companies and individuals who want to be part of the story being told at the Museum. Our form of recognition is to identify them for their donations and/or contribution, in a unique way. If they have donated funds directly, or their services or goods, we categorize their contributions as follows:
