Giving Tuesday

NEWS-01: Charitable Foundation bulletin
Submitted by: Ken Earls, CF Exec Dir & Treas. on 11/30/2021

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has become known as #GivingTuesday.  This is a day to recognize the charitable organizations which you support.  Over the past few years, this day has become a significant source of fundraising for virtually every charitable nonprofit, including your US Submarine Veterans Charitable Foundation.

Most of us know about our Scholarship Fund activity, which has awarded nearly 1,000 scholarships over the past several years.  Just in the past two years, we have awarded 115 scholarships totaling $225,000.

Our Brotherhood Fund has supported many shipmates in need with disbursements in excess of $75,000 over the past ten years.

Our Kap(SS4Kid(SS) program has visited over 25,000 children in need in the past several years.

Please take a little time to view these two videos which highlight two programs we currently have in process

I am asking for you to support your Charitable Foundation on this #GivingTuesday.  Please go to and make a donation to a fund of your choice.  The amount you donate is based on your own personal situation, any amount helps and we appreciate all donations.  Or, if you prefer, please mail a check to:

P.O. Box 3870
