Donations to the U.S. Naval Institute provide funding to mission-centric activities, preserves our history, and creates useful tools to make information and content available when and where we need it. Whether designated for a specific project, such as funding an oral history or creating a digital photo archive, or unrestricted to be used wherever the need is greatest, gifts transform everything the Naval Institute does to remain the independent forum for the Sea Services.
We hope you will give a gift and be part of the future of the Naval Institute.
