The Patriots Point Foundation is the independent 501(c)(3) non-profit fundraising organization whose mission is to raise funds for the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum.
Even though Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is a state agency, it receives no appropriated funding and looks to the Patriots Point Foundation for help with projects and any other major needs outside of maintenance of the historic ships.
