Help Us Accomplish the Foundation’s Mission
The Naval Historical Foundation’s financial support comes from dues-paying members and contributions from public-spirited individuals and organizations. As an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) organization, all donations to the Foundation are tax deductible as long as you don’t receive anything in return.
The Naval Historical Foundation respects the privacy of its members and donors and safeguards member and donor contact information and giving history. The Foundation maintains its member and donor information for internal purposes only and does not sell its member or donor lists to any outside organization. The Foundation may occasionally share its member or donor lists with similar organizations with mutual interests in naval history, but will do so only with explicit approval of the Board of Directors. To publicly recognize and thank donors for their generosity, the Foundation may print a list of donors’ names in internal publications and our regular newsletter, Pull Together. Addresses and other contact information will not be included in such listings. In such cases, other organizations and individuals would have access to our donors’ names. Any donor may notify the Foundation if he or she chooses not to be included in such listings.
These donations can either be made online through our web site by clicking on the below link, by phone with a major credit card, or by mail. Upon receipt of your donation, we will send you a thank you and acknowledgment letter.
Please Note: We use a nonprofit service to process our credit card transactions. GIVEDIRECT is the name that will appear on your credit card statement – not Naval Historical Foundation. Using a 3rd party helps us keep our costs low and allows us to spend more time and money on our programs.
Donations “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of”
These donations permit you to recognize someone special in your life who has or had a connection to the Navy. “In Honor of” donations are associated with those special people who are still living, and “In Memory of” donations are for those who have died. Donations in these categories are made in the same fashion as a regular donation, by mail, phone call, or selecting the “click here to give online” button right above this paragraph. If you use the on line donation feature, be sure to check the appropriate block and include any pertinent information in the “Comments” section of the donation form. For “In Honor of” donations, please include the person’s full name and address so that we can notify that person of the donation made in his or her name,. For “In Memory of” donations, please include the family’s address so they may be informed of the donation. You as the donor will also receive a thank you letter acknowledging your tax-deductible gift.
