Who We Are

Established in 1979, the Friends of Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium (FOSL) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the goal of providing funds for two purposes:

  1. Engaging our community with educational programs in science and history.
  2. The acquisition, maintenance, and restoration of Sloan Museum's automotive collection.

The Friends present the annual Golden Memories car show each September, and the annual Sloan Museum Auto Fair is organized by a committee of FOSL. The group also supports the museum and planetarium with items not covered by grants. For example, the Friends donated funds for a van that is used for school outreach programs, as well as sponsoring the annual Night at the Museum gala fundraiser. Most recently, the Friends helped purchase and bring home the 1909 Paterson Motor Buggy, which was built here in Flint.

You can contribute to this work by donating to the FOSL, or by becoming a Friend of Sloan Museum & Longway Planetarium.
