Donate to the Boat
The SSN 777 Club relies on the support of friends and shipmates who believe in our mission which is:
Support the morale, well-being and recreation of the USS North Carolina (SSN 777) crew and their families;
Encourage, advocate, and generate statewide citizen support for the USS North Carolina SSN 777 while on active duty;
Facilitate the purchase of the SSN 777 after it fulfills its service to our nation so that it may be preserved for educational purposes.
Your tax-deductible donations enable the SSN 777 Club to provide plaques, made of original teak wood from the decking of the Battleship North Carolina, BB-55 to departing crew members; holiday season support such as Thanksgiving meals and gift cards at Christmas Season; emergency travel support for the families as needed while the 777 is underway; UNC Tarheel athletic t-shirts for the crew to use for recreational activities; in addition to supporting the administrative and organizational tasks necessary to operate the SSN 777 Club as it fulfills its mission.

150 performance-wear athletic shirts in Carolina Blue printed with “The Tarheel Boat” = $15.00 each
