We are thrilled to announce an exciting and generous challenge grant from a supporter who has requested anonymity. This supporter has committed $50,000 to the Conservancy – if we can match it dollar for dollar!

Funds raised will support the conservancy’s crucial preservation efforts and help us build the conservancy’s permanent curatorial collection of SS United States art and artifacts. Momentum continues to build in support of america’s flagship and the conservancy is deeply grateful for such generous support. Donations of any size can be made HERE.

We would also like to thank everyone who contributed so  generously to the Conservancy’s year-end annual appeal. We continue to process these donations and will share a summary once they have been tallied. Your contributions have been indispensable as we continue to keep the ship safely afloat.
 
In sum, 2016 promises to be a momentous year for the SS United States, and we can’t thank you enough for your continued support. ”
