The Navy League of the United States created the President’s Circle in 2000 to recognize and highlight the importance of charitable contributions to our initiatives on behalf of our nation’s sea services. It is a select giving society that recognizes steadfast supporters who make an annual gift of $1,000 or more to any Navy League-affiliated programs, includes gifts to the Navy League Foundation and Naval STEM Institute.
With the roll out of our newly reinvigorated President’s Circle, we will be featuring current members and the reasons why they chose to “Stand in the Circle” this year. Many have been members of the President’s Circle for multiple years. We would like to recognize them for their financial commitment, leadership, and support to our mission.
