The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the official workplace giving campaign of the federal government allowing federal employees and retirees to pledge monetary support and volunteer time to approved charities--including the Navy Supply Corps Foundation, Inc.

Not familiar with the Combined Federal Campaign? Fundraising for charitable organizations in the Federal workplace can be traced to the late-1940's. Learn more at https://www.opm.gov/combined-federal-campaign/ . Official Solicitation Period is September 21, 2020 - January 15, 2021. We appreciate your support!

The Fun Bunch is needed during COVID
The Fun Bunch is needed during COVID
As we all adjust to the lifestyle changes brought on by COVID, our Supply Family has an opportunity to ease the burden on Supply spouses. Recognizing the increased need to support our spouses and provide safe socialization, the Navy Supply Corps Foundation has created a spouse support group, the Fun Bunch, to serve our families in connection with our 37 Chapters around the world.
 
The Fun Bunch is not an official spouse club, but is a more casual, loosely organized group—open to all spouses of active duty, former, retired and deceased Supply Corps officers, with an emphasis on fun! The Fun Bunch is centered on shared experiences, opportunities for engagement with each other and the community, and establishing or renewing family friendships within the Supply Corps.
 
Connecting with Supply spouses can make a big difference in the lives of our families. With fewer opportunities for engagement, spouses find the Fun Bunch bridges the gaps in socialization and support. Hampton Roads, Hawaii, Mechanicsburg and San Diego have active groups meeting at this time. Would you like to see a Fun Bunch in your area? It only take a few spouses to get a group started!

For more information about getting a Fun Bunch started in your area, or to show your interest in participating in a group, please contact Gracie Dziewiatkowski at spouserep@usnscf.com . Gracie is the Spouse Representative on the Foundation Board of Directors and would be happy to help you learn more about our Fun Bunch opportunity. With many Supply spouses struggling to find the camaraderie and support they need during these hard times, your outreach can be the start of a lifelong friendship!

A Lasting Legacy
A Lasting Legacy
Originally founded in 1795, as the U.S. Navy Office of Purveyor of Supplies, the United States Navy Supply Corps celebrates our 225th Birthday this year! In February of 1795, a Philadelphia businessman named Tench Francis, Jr. was appointed by President George Washington as the nation’s first Purveyor of Public Supplies. This act established the U.S. Navy Supply Corps as one of the oldest staff corps in the Navy.
 
Honoring Tench Francis as the founding officer of the Navy Supply Corps, the Navy Supply Corps Foundation has established the Tench Francis Legacy Society to recognize our members who have included the Foundation in their estate planning. Gift planning can include a bequest in your will or by participating in a gift annuity or other life-income tool. If you have already taken steps to provide this type of support, please let us know as we would like to include you as a member of the Society. We are extremely grateful to our Tench Francis Legacy Society members for your generous support of our Supply Corps Family today and into the future.

Please consider joining the ranks of those currently listed as members of the Society, and help support the mission of the Navy Supply Corps Foundation by planning a future gift to the Foundation. If you would like information about ways you can support the mission of the Navy Supply Corps Foundation into the future, please contact our Executive Director, CAPT (Ret) Daniel Pionk at: executivedirector@usnscf.com or call 706-354-4111.

THE VINTAGE OAKLEAF CLUB ~ Celebrating our most senior Supply Corps officers
THE VINTAGE OAKLEAF CLUB ~ Celebrating our most senior Supply Corps officers
The Heritage Committee is compiling and archiving the rich historical impact that our most senior Supply Corps officers have had on our Navy and our community. We have a list of our most senior Supply Corps officers called the “The Vintage Oakleaf Club”.

The committee will be contacting each member of our Vintage Oakleaf Club, or their associated family members, to capture their stories. Information that will be sought includes name, rank, years of service, tours, post Navy career accomplishments, as well as photos and sea stories. The Heritage Committee will ultimately feature each member in the Oakleaf, on the Foundation website, and also the Navy Supply Corps Newsletter for the enrichment and appreciation of our entire Supply Corps Community.

If you know of any Supply Corps officers 90 years and older who we may be able to add to our list and contact, please contact CAPT (ret) Joe Spruill at heritage@usnscf.com .

The effects of COVID-19 are being felt all around the world. The virus has changed our lives in so many ways--including how we shop. Shopping online has become a necessity for many of us as "stay home" orders are implemented throughout the world. The Navy Supply Corps Foundation has partnered with Amazon to establish a way for you to shop online and help support our mission. 

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the Navy Supply Corps Foundation, a nonprofit organization supporting the Supply Community.

Visit smile.amazon.com and on your first visit select Navy Supply Corps Foundation, Inc. as your charitable organization before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection and every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation to the Foundation. 

Let's use this unique opportunity to give to our Community while staying safe!
