The Wright Family Foundation supports the preservation of aviation history as related to flight pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright.

It funds research and publication of aviation history, scholarships for studies in the fields of aviation and aeronautics, educational programming and restoration and display of aviation artifacts, landmarks and memorials. To create a steady revenue stream to sustain the preservation and operation of Hawthorn Hill, the home of the Wright brothers’ family, the Foundation seeks to create marketing materials that can be sent to prospective manufacturers and licensees of Wright brothers branded merchandise.
