Q: Why make a charitable contribution to the Glenview Hangar One Foundation and what are the advantages of making a Charitable Contribution to Glenview Hangar One Foundation?

The Glenview Hangar One Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (C) (3) entity under the US Tax Code that raises funding for its mission and goals primarily through tax-deductible Membership sales, charitable contributions (both non-restricted and restricted), and brick sales under the Navy Park Brick Program. Future goals of the Glenview Hangar One Foundation include the creation of a permanent Naval Air Station Glenview Museum and a Challenger Learning Center (an educational facility emphasizing the application of science to the field of aviation) to be located in Glenview, preferably near Navy Park at the Glen Town Center if possible. The current Naval Air Station Glenview Museum is located in temporary space at 1951 Tower Drive at the Glen Town Center (next to Jos. A. Bank).

Hangar One has an opportunity to secure its current location on a more permanent basis, however, this opportunity will not become a reality unless Hangar One raises enough financing through the referenced funding sources. Realistically, the only way the current Naval Air Station Glenview Museum (at its current temporary location, or an alternative permanent location) or the Challenger Learning Center, will be achieved is for Hangar One to expeditiously raise a material amount of financing through tax-deductible charitable contributions. Past charitable contributions have come from both individuals and commercial entities, and Hangar One recognizes these donors as Significant Contributors.

For 2004, a new membership category, Cornerstone, has been created. For a minimum $500 donation, Cornerstone contributors (with consent) are recognized in perpetuity as contributors to the Naval Air Station Glenview Museum as all proceeds from Cornerstone contributions are restricted to the budget for the execution of the Naval Air Station Glenview Museum. Cornerstone sponsors also receive a one-year membership to the Glenview Hangar One Foundation.

Charitable contributions also include the donation of NASG memorabilia, or other military artifacts, from veterans or third parties to possibly be used in the Naval Air Station Glenview Museum.
As the Glenview Hangar One Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (C) (3) entity under the US Tax Code, all charitable contributions, whether in the form of cash, cash equivalents, or assets, are fully tax deductible for federal income tax purposes.
