Help Make a Difference!

Using living history and the authentic setting of historic ships, we provide today’s youth with the opportunity to build character, confidence, gain self-reliance, and learn the value of teamwork.

Kelly, a 5th grader who attended our Age of Sail program, had this to say about her experience:

“I really learned a lot on the ship, but I mostly learned how to work together even if you don’t like somebody. The thing that we had to do most was work together because if we didn’t we wouldn’t have got through it all.”

Thanks to your generosity and support, we can continue to complete critical preservation and restoration projects in and around the National Maritime Park, while also offering impactful, hands-on educational programs.

You are a part of our success! Give boldly and partner with us to impact the lives of our youth through historical preservation and innovative education programs like the Age of Sail program. Please consider contributing to our Annual Fund today with a tax-deductible donation.
