Providing funds, vehicles and information for various charitable and educational purposes that are related to all aspects of Studebaker.
The Studebaker National Foundation is fulfilling its mission of preserving the past and supporting the future in a number of tangible ways, including Museum Placements and Support.
Museum Placements and Support
One of the ways Studebaker collectors ensure their vehicle and legacy lives on is to donate their Studebaker to the SNF. We, in turn, work to place that Studebaker in a museum for all to see and enjoy.
Shouldn't every automotive and Transportation Museum across North America have at least one Studebaker vehicle?
Your SNF is working to increase Studebaker presence in these museums so that the visiting public, especially those who were born long after Studebakers were last built, will learn of our marque's legendary history and great vehicles.
Vehicles: The SNF accepts Studebaker vehicles by gift or Will for placement in museums that currently have no or limited Studebaker presence.
Parts: There are Studebakers at museums in need of parts to complete their restoration. If you have parts that you could donate, the SNF can coordinate those gifts where they will do the most good in preserving the Studebaker legacy.
We have placed donated Studebakers in museums (shown below), provided other museums with support for their Studebaker displays, and have provided Turning Wheels Magazine® subscriptions to a number of other museums throughout the US.
