Contribute to the Endowment Fund
To insure the long-term preservation of the USS SLATER after all the original DE sailors are gone, the Museum has created an Endowment Fund. In this fund, your donation is not spent, but invested. Our goal is to raise three million dollars. In the future, the principal will not be spent. The interest earned will be used to support the long-term preservation of the SLATER.
If you have questions about donating to the Destroyer Escort Historical Museum, please call 518-431-1943.
Your support is so important. The USS SLATER is owned and operated by the private not for profit
Destroyer Escort Historical Museum as an IRS 501(c)(3). Founded by veterans as a living naval museum, USS SLATER is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Its operation is funded by contributions from loyal members, volunteers, former ship crews, corporations and private foundations. The Museum does not rely on taxpayer money, but on the generosity and patriotic spirit of those interested in preserving our naval heritage and insuring that the memory of these veterans is not forgotten when they are gone.
