PUSH THE NEEDLE TO $3,000,000 AND BE PART OF THE LEGACY.

Investing in the majestic Wings of Honor will help our community to:

  1. Commemorate the historical role Santa Barbara, the Airport and Marine Corps Air Station, Santa Barbara played in helping to win WWII in the Pacific;
  2. Honor the military men and women who through the generations have sacrificed (and continue to sacrifice) their time, energy and lives to protect America;
  3. Locate at the portal to Santa Barbara an iconic glass sculpture – the tallest cantilevered glass sculpture in the world, designed to create a “Wow” experience for all who walk beneath its wings; and
  4. Educate future generations about this important period in Santa Barbara’s history.

We have received $1,075,000 in donations and pledges to date. With unanimous approvals from the Santa Barbara Airport Commission, Santa Barbara City Council, Santa Barbara Visual Art in Public Places; and preliminary approvals from Santa Barbara County Arts Advisory, Architectural Board of Review, and Historic Landmark Society the Wings of Honor are ready for takeoff.

DONATE TODAY TO HELP WINGS OF HONOR TAKE FLIGHT.
