Become a Hero!

To preserve the living history of Patriots Point, we need all hands on deck. Although Patriots Point is a state agency, the museum receives no appropriated funding and looks to the USS Yorktown Foundation for assistance. Your donation will help fund exhibit renovations improvements onboard the USS Yorktown; fund new education programs; and fund upgrades to the museum’s technology to keep Patriots Point a dynamic, interactive and imaginative learning experience.

The USS Yorktown Foundation is a 501(C)3 charitable organization as defined by the IRS (Federal ID # 46-1892486)

The USS Yorktown Foundation dedicates 76.1% of it’s total expenses to program service for FY2018 - (SC Secretary of State)

Charity Navigator® recommends that charities should spend 75% or more of their expenses directly on programs.

Education Scholarship

Education Scholarships

Provides scholarship and funding for under-served students to attend the cutting-edge STEM-based educational programs at Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. Without scholarship and program support from The USS Yorktown Foundation, many under-resourced schools would not be able to provide their students with these once in a lifetime experiences offered only at Patriots Point.
