General Donation


Please consider supporting the Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum.

The USS EDSON (DD-946) museum ship is operated and maintained entirely by the Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum. As you can imagine, moving a ship of this size, preparing it, restoring it, opening it to the public, and maintaining it is a daunting and expensive endeavor.

Donations are always welcome. $5, $10, $25, $50, $100... whatever you can contribute will help us get the ship to Bay City. Once the USS Edson arrives, you can help by keeping the destroyer in ship-shape condition so it may continue to serve as a wonderful educational and historic treasure.

All payments are tax deductible as a charitable contribution. You will receive a tax deductible letter upon receipt of your donation.
