NEW HEADQUARTERS BUILDING CAMPAIGNUPDATE . . . . .
RASMUSON FOUNDATION AWARDS $300,000 GRANT FOR NEW HEADQUARTERS BUILDING!

To the Alaska Airmen’s Membership,

We value your membership of the largest statewide aviation organization in the nation. We need your help. We have been trying for 6 years to raise enough money to construct a new building on our site at Lake Hood (now known as Airmen’s Point). Well, we have come a long way. We have $400,000 in the bank, ready and waiting, thanks to donations from you and the raffle of the Husky, donated by Mr. Marsh Carter. We are in the process of permitting the building and we envisage starting the project this fall with removal of the existing building and site preparation for construction in May of 2014. With the $300,000 award from the Rasmuson Foundation our fundraising goal is almost complete. With the additional donation of goods and services, we believe that we will be within sight of our objective. We solicited Life Members at the end of last year and successfully raised $20,000. All we are asking from our general membership is a donation of $20 each. Not much to pay when you consider what we will all get – a building, a place for GA to gather, an iconic representation of what flying is about in Alaska.

Please help, if you can. It’s easy . . . call the Airmen’s at (907) 245- 1251 with your credit card number, mail us a check at:

We will continue to update you via email or The Transponder, as we make progress.
