The only guaranteed income received by our association comes from your membership dues and the items that are sold in the ships store.
We need your help to keep the association vibrant, healthy and active for the future. Without your financial assistance, many of the things we do and are planning to do cannot and will not take place.
What Happens to Your Donations:
100% of your donations is used for the betterment of the association.
Donations to our general fund help support the newsletter and our website as well as promoting the association.
Donations to the trailer fund:
As you know, immediately prior to the Sinkex, members of the association were able to acquire many artifacts from Wainwright which led to the purchase of what has become our mobile museum trailer. Donations to the trailer fund help offset the costs of the maintenance, insurance premiums, etc. necessary to bring the trailer to our reunions as well as on the road participating in veterans events around the country.
The museum is always looking for the donations of artifacts, either to own or borrow, to display in the trailer and/or at reunions. These items might be those that “accidently” wound up in your sea bag as you crossed the brow for the last time, “found” their way into your trunk at decommissioning. In addition, we would welcome printed matter such as correspondence between you and your family that depict how life was on board, electronic media such as 8mm film or video or audio recordings or anything you may have acquired on line. These items will be used to keep the displays fresh and interactive.
