The Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum USA, Inc. was founded in 2019 with the purpose to provide financial support from US taxpayers to the museum in Ireland of our same name. While we receive a share of government grants and other assistance, our primary source of income is ticket sales, which are down over 75% in 2020. For this reason, we are more appreciative than ever of our donors who choose to support us.
If you shop on Amazon, there is an almost seamless way you can help. We would very much appreciate your shopping using their “Smile” program, which is their charitable giving program that donates 0.5% of the sale proceeds to a charity you designate. It is very simple to do: First click the following link: https://amzn.to/2I70MLR.
This will either designate us as your favorite charity, or if you are asked to enter our name, you may be asked to find us on a list (Hint: We are the only “Foynes”) or enter our Charity ID, 84-2861777. After that, just shop! But always use the link to start, or after the first time, just replace the “www” in “www.Amazon.com” with “smile”, shopping instead at at “smile.Amazon.com” instead. You can even designate us on your Amazon smartphone app!
Thank you in advance for your support!
David Brown, Managing Director
