Afterguard & Captain's Table

In July 2016 SSV Oliver Hazard Perry  commenced operations and experiential education programs at sea as America’s new Tall Ship. While revenue-generating student and adult programs will sustain approximately three quarters of our annual operating budget, we seek to engage individual donors and small businesses in this distinct new annual giving program. The Afterguard Program will fund sail trainee scholarships, partnerships with public schools, youth organizations and cultural institutions, and activities that ensure wide public access and innovative approaches to education.

The Afterguard Members make a $1,000 net annual contribution. The Afterguard Program includes one additional level of support named the Captain’s Table for donors who make a $5,000 charitable contribution.
