The USS IDAHO Commissioning Foundation has dedicated itself with raising funds to cover the costs of Commissioning activities, events leading up to and including Commissioning Week as well as habitability improvements, memorials and support programs for the crew and families.

This covers incurred expenses which are customary of the commissioning of a US Navy warship. The funds raised ensure various commissioning events, community outreach and host functions are in place to celebrate the commissioning of our state’s namesake ship.

Our fundraising goals include funding scholarships for the USS IDAHO Crew and their families via the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation. The Scholarship Foundation's charter is; easing the financial burden of undergraduate and vocational education for eligible members of the U.S. Submarine Force and their dependents (http://dolphinscholarship.org)

Additionally our goals include funding other support programs through the Navy's Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs and Family Service Center Programs.

The vast majority of your donated funds goes to the project. We are an all volunteer team!

*The numbers of tickets and reservations may have to be reduced based on capacity restrictions imposed by the Navy or local government restrictions.
