Support SPAAMFAA National

SPAAMFAA is a group of friends we often call family.  We traditionally appeal to our SPAAMFAA family for financial support.  We can only operate the organization by your continued membership and donations.  

Donations, over and above membership, help us work toward a bright, long-lasting future.  A donation can be specific to a program, – the Archives, or Endowment, or directed to the General Operations, – certainly all three are consistently in need of your support.

See below for specific programs that might fit your personal interests. 


This fund supports the long-term future needs of SPAAMFAA. Funds are not used for regular operating expenses, rather a small percentage of this fund is designated for expenditure annually for special needs and capital projects as approved by the Endowment Committee.

The Endowment fund is supported through special contributions from members, non-members, and memorial contributions from deceased members.


Lee Soderbeck
Archives Fund

Established in 1984, in the name of Helene “Lee” Soderbeck, monies from this fund are used to support the operations, development, and expansion of the SPAAMFAA archives and library, currently housed at the ATHS library, in Kansas City, MO.

This fund is also supported through by contributions from members, non-members, and memorial contributions from deceased members.


While we are grateful for contributions of any amount, we would like to encourage individuals to consider adding SPAAMFAA as a beneficiary in their will, trust, or estate plan. Donations may be in the form of cash, stocks or other securities, or real estate.
