Military Business Alliance

Show your corporate responsibility, network with others, and develop your brand in the community.
Form an alliance between local businesses and the men and women of March Air Reserve Base.

We'd like to personally invite local businesses to join our Military Business Alliance (MBA). The MBA helps with fundraising activities to raise a minimum of $100,000 cash and in-kind goods annually to support the March Air Reserve Base Community. Our needs include cash, but there are many other ways to help with in-kind goods and services your business may provide.

To find out more, please review this MBA Packet, and check out our Wish List. Thank you!

Support military health, welfare, morale, recruitment and retention activities.

By combining resources, MBA will be able to support several local military programs including:

The histories of March Field and Southern California have been intertwined for nearly a century. Anticipating the need to build up military forces prior to America's entry into World War I, the Army directed officers stationed in the Los Angeles area to survey Riverside's Alessandro plain for suitability as a flying training field (a two-day trip by horseback) in late 1917. The base first opened its gates in March 1918, making it one of the three oldest installations in the Air Force today, along with Randolph AFB in Texas and Langley AFB in Virginia.
The March Aviation Society is a private, nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3) #27-4745509. It is not a part of the Department of Defense or any of its components and it has no governmental status.
