The Friends of the Battleship North Carolina, Inc. relies upon donations from supporters like you to accomplish preservation and restoration projects aboard the Battleship. In addition, the Friends provide support for exhibits, interpretation, artifact acquisition and conservation, and educational programming. Our current goal is to support more STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming development on the Battleship. Your gift of support makes an impact on these projects and programs. The Battleship North Carolina receives no funding from federal, state or local government for its operations.
