Financial Donations

Since our earliest years, the exceptional growth of the Estrella Warbirds Museum has been by the generous financial donations of our members, benefactors and private foundations. We have long been against the idea of being supported by your tax dollars. We knew that if the North County/Paso Robles community was interested in having a quality aviation museum museum in their midst, we believed they would support us. And support us, they have! We are most gracious for your support over the years. Financial donations can be accomplished in a myriad of ways. Choose the method that best suits your desires.

  1. Checks can be made out to Estrella Warbirds Museum, Inc., and mailed to: Estrella Warbirds Museum
    ATTN: Bookkeeper

  2. Individual memorials via Freedom Flight or Concrete Block Name Plate.

  3. Make a donation via PayPal. It's quick an easy.
  4. Most donations of personal property to the Museum qualify as donations to a cultural institution, and the Donor is entitled to taxable deductions of items for their reasonable or appraised values, and tax purposes (refer to current IRS policy). Loaned property is not tax deductible.
  5. By law, the Museum is not authorized or permitted to give or secure appraisals of the value of donated personal property, although estimated values may be established for purposes of Museum insurance. If the Donor desires independent appraisals of value of donated personal property, it is the Donor's responsibility to obtain such appraisals.
  6. It is the Donor's responsibility to notify the Museum of any change in a Donor's status, or a change of address.
