The mission of the AFCA is to be an organization for the education and promotion of the understanding of antique electrical and mechanical fans: their history, operation, preservation, collection, and restoration. The AFCA encourages local, regional, and national meetings in order to promote knowledge of the history of antique fans and to promote the knowledge of the science behind the methods of operation of antique electrical and mechanical fans. Further, the AFCA promotes friendship between people who have an interest in learning about the history/collection/preservation of antique fans. The AFCA advances the knowledge of how to preserve, restore, maintain, and collect antique electrical or mechanical fans and encourages the exchange of fans, fan parts, and useful fan information. The AFCA cooperates with other related educational organizations on projects of mutual interest.


The AFCA also supports the creation, maintenance, research on, and distribution of historical records regarding antique fan production: including fan manufacturers names and details on models and styles produced, dates of production, quantities of production, etc. The AFCA supports the publishing of this and other educational information regarding antique fansí history, collection, maintenance, repair, conservation, and safe methods of shipment. The AFCA limits its purposes to exempt purposes within IRS section 501(c)(3).
