Sandbar Mitchell Warbird of Glory Museum

Guardians of History
More Information

The Guardians of History is a fundraising campaign of the Warbirds of Glory Museum.

You're encouraged to become a Guardian by sponsoring an individual B-25 part. As a Guardian of your B-25 part, you become a protector and defender of history by providing financial support to our youth mentoring programs and the restoration of B-25 Sandbar Mitchell to flying condition. You have the exclusive claim to point and say “I saved that part!”

As a Guardian you will be publically honored with your own individualized web page that officially recognizes you are a Guardian with detailed description of your B-25 part.

Additionally, you may honor a loved one, a veteran or leave any sincere message that you want the world to see and remember. This is great for leaving a lasting memory of the greatest generation so they shall never be forgetton.

A Guardian may be any individual, family, business, club, association or group.

You or your group may become a Guardian in one of two ways: Instant sponsorship or via pledge drive.

Instant Sponsorship

In one simply transaction, you or your group may quickly become a Guardian of your chosen B-25 part.

From the list of available B-25 parts on the Guardians of History website, choose your B-25 part that suits your personality and support spending level. Click the “Instant Sponsor” button to claim this part. Complete the simple form, including contact, payment details, and optional memorial message and click the Submit Payment button. You are now a member of the Order of Guardians. Congratulations. And thank you.

Sponsorship Pledge Drive

You can increase your impact and become a Guardian of a bigger or more prestigious B-25 part through the collective effort of a group of individuals. The website provides you the ability to start your own mini pledge drive to encourage other people to join you in a group sponsorship. One person starts the pledge drive with a partial support gift, called a pledge.

The clock starts. You have 30-days to share the customized pledge link to members of your group and encourage them to submit their pledge. When the total individual sponsorship pledges reaches the target amount then your pledge drive is successful and your group is now the exclusive Guardian, defender, and protector of that B-25 part.

From the list of available B-25 parts on the Guardians of History website, choose that B-25 part that your group wants to sponsor. Click the “Pledge Drive” button to start your individualized sponsorship pledge drive.
