Donation campaign image including "Join the effort to purchase necessary programming equipment. Call 216-623-1111."At the International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM), our diverse educational program offerings are one of our organization's cornerstones. Every year, we welcome thousands of community members and visitors to our programs, including the Dinner with a Slice of History series, summer camps, tours, Lunch & Learns, Wings of Women (WOW) STEM Conference, Rocket Day, and so much more!

To make these events and others possible, we NEED YOUR HELP.

In late 2022, IWASM discovered that the community-use chairs at our building, Burke Lakefront Airport, were removed. In January 2023, we learned from airport officials that they are not replacing the nearly 70 chairs. This is where you come in.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit museum, we provide free admission for self-guided tours and educational programming at the museum, having the equipment necessary to welcome thousands of visitors (2022 welcomed over 9,000 program participants) is VITAL to our work.

Your “CHAIR-itable” contribution will ensure that we can continue to offer these critical educational programs to further our mission to preserve, educate, and inspire our communities about the experiences of women in all areas of aviation and aerospace! Our goal is to purchase museum-owned chairs for use for our programs and replace the chairs that were abruptly removed from circulation.
