Navy Supply Corps Foundation (NSCF) Overview

The NSCF was created in 1970 to serve the U.S. Navy Supply Corps community; the Navy's business, financial, acquisition and logistics professionals. Currently headquartered in Athens, GA, the NSCF has grown from a social organization to a global 501c.3 organization that serves the Navy Supply Corps community through its mission of sharing the story of the Navy Supply Corps and providing the community with programs to meet its current and future needs. With 37 direct report Chapters around the world, the NSCF impacts the Supply Corps in almost every area where the U.S. Navy operates. The Foundation’s mission is to perpetuate the values, traditions, and history of the Supply Corps by providing services and programs related to recruiting, training and development, transition, recognition, financial support, family support, camaraderie and commemorations to the Supply Corps community.

The NSCF is a dynamic non-profit that supports the full spectrum of the Supply Corps community within the U.S. Navy including active, reserve, retired and former officers and active, reserve and retired supply-related enlisted members, and their families. While accomplishing its mission, all elements of the NSCF operate in accordance with the U.S. Navy's regulations regarding Non Federal Entities, the Navy's Code of Ethics and the Uniformed Code of Military Justice.  

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors (Board) and operates under a working committee construct. The Board assists the Executive Director (ED) and staff with non-profit management, program execution and liaison with the U.S. Navy at the National and local levels. The triad of Board, committees, and the ED and staff, runs the Foundation. The Board meets twice a year to conduct its governance responsibilities and the committees meet as needed, usually virtually, to execute their programs. The ED and staff conduct the day-to-day operations in coordination with the Board and committee chairpersons.  

Along with the standard non-profit governance and operating documentation, the Foundation operates under a Board-approved Strategic Plan that delineates each committee's goals and objectives for a three-year period. We are currently executing the third year of our 2017-2019 Strategic Plan and are planning an update to get us moving ahead beyond 2020.

The NSCF's mission is more relevant today than ever before: its programs are making a positive difference at all levels of the Supply Corps’ ‘family’ and the way ahead is an exciting one. The ED position represents an extraordinary opportunity for a dynamic executive to help lead the Foundation as it moves into the future along with a dedicated Board, vibrant committees, professional staff, and an extensive cadre of energetic volunteers around the world.
