United States Submarine Service
YOU raised your hand and agreed to serve in this remarkable service for the United States of America. How important was that time spent by you to your life? We know how important it was and is to the United States, but how important was it to you - personally?
Some of us benefited throughout our lives due to the experiences we lived during this critical time in our own lives. Some of us learned how to navigate through difficult times, navigate through uncharted territory, navigate through a life of challenges and rewards.
We really are and you really are special. We really did accomplish and are today, accomplishing remarkable feats, resulting in a continuing way of life for our families and for our country.
Now is the time to recognize the significant impact that the Submarine Service had on your life. Our USSVI membership is nearly 12,000 members. We are looking for 100 members who will create their Living Legacy Pledge of at least $10,000.
Each year we make awards out of the various funds within the Charitable Foundation that are more than $150,000 helping many with these generous awards. Scholarships, Brotherhood assistance, Kap(SS4Kid(SS), Memorials, Museum Boats, and more. All in support of Submarine Veterans and their families and their legacies.
Today you can make a lasting impact on this. Today you can decide to make a lifetime, lasting impact by making a Living Legacy Gift to your USSV Charitable Foundation of any amount, but a recognizable gift of $10,000 that will be recognized with your designated title for this gift. You can fund the gift with an initial payment of 10% and an annual payment of a minimum of 10% until paid in full. You can add to your pledge at any time. You can pay any amount over 10% annually.
If an initial pledge of $10,000 is out of reach, you can pledge less, and your pledge will be added to other shipmates who also pledge less than $10,000; this will be a pooled Living Legacy fund and treated exactly like a Living Legacy Fund.
All these pledges will be Endowment Funds and will last into perpetuity. Earnings from these funds will be distributed as directed by you if you have Gifted into a Living Legacy Fund.
Will you come aboard as one of our 100 Living Legacy Fund sponsors?
