Financial or Artifact Donations

Financial Donations

As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, the American Victory Ship relies on outside funding for artifact procurement, exhibits, maintenance, youth educational programs, docent training and training for police officers, fire fighters, working dogs and the FBI.  We are very proud to offer rare Relive History Cruises, yet the U.S. Coast Guard designates we must go into dry dock for required repairs before cruising again.This is a massive undertaking as over $150,000 is needed.  If you would like to support the ship’s dry dock efforts, we kindly ask that you donate now.  Your donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated and will be used effectively and appropriately.  Simply scroll down and click on the “Donate” button.  Thank you for your support.

Artifact Donations

The American Victory Ship is about to bring you even more history beyond that of our maritime war heroes.  We believe providing knowledge regarding all the military branches are critical in understanding the past.  As such, we are looking for artifact donations such as uniforms, memorabilia, books and newspapers (in good condition), and anything else that will allow us to broaden our historic scope.  If you have something you would like to donate, please bring it by the ship.  The front desk receptionist will provide you with a donation form to complete and we will take your item from you.  Please note that not all items are guaranteed to be displayed. Some may be used for in-classroom learning for our youths or at guest speaker engagements.  Should you have any questions, please call 813.228.8766.  Thank you.
