DISCLOSURE OF NONDEDUCTIBILITY OF CONTRIBUTIONS
Contributions or gifts to USSVI and USSVI Groton Base are not tax deductible as charitable contributions.
USSVI-Groton Base CLUBHOUSE & GENERAL BASE DONATION
Groton Base is still the only Base in the organization that maintains a clubhouse. USSVI (the clubhouse belongs to all of USSVI, not just Groton Base) is very fortunate and grateful to Joe Negri for what we have today. We would be remiss if we didn't mention that “The Club” has survived all these years through the many donations, and many hours of hard work, and tender loving care that many members have donated over the years. Renovations and improvements are ongoing. “The Club” has always been, and continues to be maintained by dedicated volunteers who selflessly devote their time and efforts towards keeping the building cleaned, and maintained for the rest of the membership. This is in keeping with our Creed to “Perpetuate the memory of our shipmates” by maintaining a place for all of us to gather amongst all the memorabilia and reminisce about the past and discuss the future.
Groton Base also welcomes general donations for just about any purpose. Primarily, anyone can make a donation In The Memory Of a member who has departed on Eternal Patrol. Other uses include helping a member's family in times of need, or simply to donate to the club wherever it is needed the most. Remember there is no donation too small, they all count. Your support and donations are appreciated.
USSVI-Groton Base CARING & SHARING FUND
Your support and donations are appreciated and go towards helping local Sailors and their families that are in need during the Holiday Season and throughout the year. They also help us put on a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner for Sailors, local Law Enforcement, USSVI Members, and more that can not be with their family for the Holiday. This is in keeping with our Creed to “Perpetuate the memory of our shipmates” by showing our young Sailors that we are one big family and always there for each other and share a Sea Story or two.
USSVCF-Groton Base SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Your donations to the Groton Base Scholarship Fund are appreciated and go towards helping us give meaningful scholarships to deserving college students who are the descendants of Groton Base members.
