Donation FAQ’s

1.  What percentage of my donation goes directly to those served by Kuebler’s Navy, Inc.?

Currently, 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to the programs which include mostly the cost for operating and maintaining the watercraft such as mortgage, interest, storage, dockage, maintenance and fuel.  As we are an all volunteer organization at this time, we hope to continue appropriating funds for the service and not administrative overhead.  As we grow, we recognize that this ratio will be impossible to maintain and that at some point we may have to retain the services of paid professional staff. However, we are committed to maintaining 90 – 95 percent ratio irrespective of how large we become.  We realize always that you are donating your hard earned money and services and that you want your donation to go directly to offering services, not administration expenses.  Our goal is to far exceed the Better Business Bureau’s minimum standard of $0.65 for every dollar donated going directly to providing the charitable service. We will consistently work to maintain and improve our efficiency and better serve combat veterans and ill children. If you’re still curious, take a look at our financials.
