The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation Endowment (ASOMFE) is a fund that will allow you to support the museum into the future. The ASOMFE is administered by the Cumberland Community Foundation, a public, non-profit foundation with more than twenty years of endowment management experience. One hundred percent of your gift is added to the principal of the fund, and only investment earnings are used to support operations and programming at the museum.

Gifts to the ASOMFE can be made in cash, publicly traded securities, mutual fund shares, tangible personal property or real estate. Any of these or other assets may be given outright or bequeathed to the ASOMFE. The endowment may also be designated as a beneficiary of an insurance policy or will. Furthermore, your gift may be dedicated to honor or memorialize a family member, friend or business associate. This is especially appropriate for someone who has served in airborne or special operations units.

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits. Opening the doors on August 16th, 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original United States Army’s Test Platoon’s first parachute jump, the museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, video theater and a motion simulator ride. It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present. For a nominal fee visitors can ride the 24 seat motion simulator. Find our privacy policy here.
