The Navy Supply Corps Foundation is committed to offering programs and services in support of our Supply Community. The Foundation's recent virtual event, the Navy Supply Corps 226th Birthday Ball on April 24th, brought together members from our 38 Chapters all over the world. A video recording of the event is available here and includes the full formal program, highlighted by Guest Speaker Brody Young, as well as a special message from RADM Peter Stamatopoulos, Commander, NAVSUP and 49th Chief of Supply Corps. 

Stay tuned to the Foundation's website and Facebook page as more virtual events are planned for 2021. Additionally, as we work through the residual challenges of the pandemic, our Chapters aim to re-establish engagement opportunities at the local level during the second half of the year.

The Foundation continues to take care of our own--unifying our Supply Corps Community and preserving its heritage and traditions. Your regular contributions support the Foundation's mission, and your bequests strengthen our Supply Corps Community well into the future! 

Help ensure the Navy Supply Corps Community captures and appreciates the rich history of our Supply Corps. Tell your Sea Story to RADM McKinnon at or
