Capital Campaign 2018

Since 1979, the Collings Foundation has led the way in the creation and operation of the nation’s most engaging living history events focused on aviation, military, and transportation history. Through nationwide programs like the Wings of Freedom Tour, the Vietnam Memorial Flight, and the annual local events at our Stow, Massachusetts headquarters, we have directly impacted millions of people.

The Collings Foundation is nearing completion with one of our most ambitious projects to date – construction of the new American Heritage Museum at the Collings Foundation campus in Stow, MA. Designed to world-class museum standards, the facility displays 85 of the most historically significant military vehicles and equipment from the Jacques M. Littlefield collection in an immersive and engaging environment, bringing history alive for visitors. The 73,000 square foot facility is a major addition to our Stow, MA facility and the American Heritage Museum will host visitors from all over the world and be an educational facility that is open each week to school children, educators, researchers, and the general public.

  

Your Support is Needed!

Though the construction of the American Heritage Museum is moving forward at a rapid pace, there is still a lot more to be done – and we need your help.

The American Heritage Museum is designed to be different than other museums. While many museums focus on the major artifacts alone, the AHM focuses on the story of warfare as seen through the eyes of those who fought and the artifacts become the catalysts for discussion, education, and understanding. Through the hard work of our design and curatorial team, the immersive educational experience will be unique for all who visit.

Such an ambitious project comes at a cost – and your help is critical to our success!

The extensive research, design, production, and construction of the display environment requires time and capital to complete to transform the collection into the world-class vision of the American Heritage Museum. Your generosity provides the momentum needed to open the American Heritage Museum in late 2018!
