Apex 2025

Apex 2025 is first phase of our $5.9 million capital campaign for the Corvair Museum of America expansion. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for a premier facility to preserve the legacy of the Corvair through engaging educational exhibits while entertaining visitors of all ages with dynamic displays and hands-on experiences.

For the Apex 2025 phase, our goal is $500,000. These funds are allocated for architectural fees, purchasing the property, exhibits, and marketing and promotions. Funds will also be used for grant writing.
