What is the Ambassador Program?
The Ambassador Program is a new, exciting way to support the International Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame™. Ambassadors pledge to donate to the Museum and help raise awareness of the Museum and its projects. We provide Ambassadors with everything they need to spread the word and share their support. Our goal is to have Ambassadors all over the world. All are welcome to join!
Who makes a good Ambassador?
Our Ambassadors live on all corners of the globe and come from all walks of life. The one thing they all share is a desire to preserve skydiving history and showcase our sport to the world! Whether they have decades of jumps or are simply passionate about the project, Ambassadors share the Museum’s mission of bringing our sport’s thrilling achievements to the world.
How do I become an Ambassador?
The first step is making a pledge to donate $5,000. This donation can be made as a one-time payment, in five annual payments of $1,000 each, or in 50 monthly installments of $100. If you choose the monthly option we will set up automatic monthly charges to your credit or debit card. Next, the Ambassador Program Coordinator will help you pick out your shirts and will send you your patches, pin, business cards, and a card with your Ambassador number. These items will demonstrate to the world that you support the Museum and we hope you’ll proudly show them off.
What if I inspire someone to become an Ambassador?
We will keep track of everyone who tells us you inspired them to become an Ambassador. After two you will become a 1-Star Ambassador and receive two new shirts, each with a star added to the Museum’s logo. After that every time you inspire three new Ambassadors we will send you two new shirts with another star added.
Do I have to actively recruit other Ambassadors?
No. Recruiting Ambassadors is not a requirement of the program. There are lots of ways you can support the Museum and we appreciate every level of involvement! Even if you never sign up another Ambassador we hope that you’ll proudly share your involvement in the Program with your skydiving network to help us spread the word.
How else can I support the Museum and the Ambassador Program?
Talk to your friends and fellow skydivers about the Museum and the Ambassador Program. Attend a Hall of Fame Celebration. Join the Skydiving Museum Ambassadors Facebook page and encourage your friends to do the same. Donate items from your personal collection. Nominate someone for the Hall of Fame.
How many Ambassadors will there be?
As many as possible! Our goal is to have hundreds of Ambassadors. We have already begun to build an international network of Ambassadors from all over the globe. As more people join and help us spread the word we believe our numbers will grow very quickly.
Where will the Museum be built and when will it be ready?
The Museum will be built in north Orlando, Florida. iFLY has generously agreed to construct the building alongside a new 16 foot indoor wind tunnel! This co-location makes the Museum an exciting destination for skydivers and the general public. We are currently working with a nationally-known museum design firm. We look forward to sharing details with you as they become available!
