Frequently Asked Questions

Funds raised allow the U.S. Naval Institute to undertake necessary educational and preservation projects too costly to accomplish with operating funds alone. Because our traditional sources of income — membership dues, book sales, and advertising revenues — tend to fluctuate with the size of the defense community and economic swings beyond our control, it is prudent to seek additional avenues of support. Also, successful fundraising efforts will allow us to explore new ways to fulfill our mission and to strengthen our professional association.
