Warbirds Museum receives grant from Sidney Stern Memorial Trust
–The Estrella Warbirds Museum has received a $2,000 grant from The Sidney Stern Memorial Trust which is, “devoted solely to the funding of charitable, scientific, medical and educational organizations.”
This is the first time the museum has received a grant from this trust which, “endeavors to support soundly managed charitable organizations which give service with broad scope, have a substantial effect on their target populations and contribute materially to the general welfare.”
This funding will be directed to continue museum’s programs in educating the young about military aviation history and the sacrifice many have paid for our freedom, and to support their restoration projects that foster camaraderie among our veterans and other volunteers as they work alongside each other.
Estrella Warbirds Museum is dedicated to the restoration, preservation and display of military aircraft, vehicles and memorabilia and commemorates those who have served in military aviation and in other military roles. EWM’s approach is not to glorify conflict, but rather to make future generations aware that our way of life does not come without sacrifice.
The museum was founded in 1992 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They are located at 4251 Dry Creek Road, Paso Robles. For more information, call (805) 712-8336, or go to www.ewarbirds.org.
