USS CINCINNATI COMMISSIONING Foundation EIN is 35-2640528
We are an IRS approved 501(3)c. After any donation is made we can provide a letter with our full tax information in order to submit for taxes for fiscal year 2019.
The Foundation has been established, as an extension of the local Navy League of the United States (navyleague.org) in order to support the Commissioning activities of USS Cincinnati, the connection of our ship to our city and the ship’s crew and their immediate families through the establishment of a scholarship fund for their continuing education.
Traditionally the Navy League of the United States supports ship’s commissionings through a number of activities and sponsorships. We are taking this one step further to support the crew and Navy family by enabling enhanced opportunities for continuing education. Along the way we will enhance the connections between Cincinnati and our Navy in ways that support our service members, bring new opportunities to them to educate themselves, their spouses and their children.
The events surrounding the commissioning are not paid for by the U. S. Government but are privately funded by individuals and companies through the Cincinnati Council of the Navy League, a non-profit organization. The beneficiaries of these funds will be the ship, her crew and their families. With your help, we will provide an unforgettable experience for you, our city, and the sailors of the USS Cincinnati.
