Please join us in thanking the following for their kind contributions to the Aurora Division. Their support allows us to provide a cost-effective program with unparalleled opportunities to our cadets. The Aurora Division would have capsized long ago without this help. As they say in the Navy, BRAVO ZULU to our sponsors.

The Internal Revenue Service has determined that the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps Aurora Division is "...exempt from federal income tax under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in section 501(c)(3). ... Donors may deduct contributions to you as provided in section 170 of the code." (excerpts from our IRS Letter of Determination, which is available upon request)

Please contact Commanding Officer LCDR Daniel Wayeshe if you are able to help us. General contributions are always welcome, but if you would like to sponsor something more specific, click here to see our "wish list."
