The Theodore Roosevelt Division is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax deductible.


 We're creating the next generation of leaders...

and we need your help.

USNSCC – Theodore Roosevelt Division is a non-profit, drug-free , alcohol-free and gang-free lifestyle youth group dedicated to teaching and promoting an interest in the armed forces through self-discipline and hands-on training as well as individual responsibilities.  While federally chartered by Congress and sponsored by the Long Island Council of the U.S. Navy League, our local operations are supported solely by donations from parents, friends, family members and community members like you.

Theodore Roosevelt Division welcomes donations, large or small, which can help provide opportunities for our cadets. Your donation will go straight to our Unit to benefit the cadets. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadets of Theodore Roosevelt Division is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt youth services organization. Donations to our unit are deductible on your federal tax return to the extent allowable by law under the Internal Revenue Service Code.

All donations go 100% directly to benefit the cadets in our program. Theodore Roosevelt Division adult staff are all volunteers, and no donation funds are used for administrative or operational expenses to run our unit.

Very little of our costs are covered by the US Navy through donations of uniforms and facilities. Your donation(s) will go toward things like…

  • Helping one (or more) of our cadets attending a training they may otherwise not be able to afford
  • Purchasing meals, snacks and supplies for our monthly drills. (We are feeding a small army)
  • Facilities fees and equipment for off site drills. (Transportation, equipment rental, tools, etc.)
  • Long term supplies for overnight drills and trainings. Things like, Camping Tents, Shade Canopies, Camp Stoves, Cooking Utensils.
  • Uniforms for our cadets. Each active cadet wears no less than 3 complete US Navy uniforms
    (complete with ribbons & appurtenances) through out the year. They grow out of them constantly, and we do our best as a unit to help with this cost to our cadets and their families.
