The Fleet Week Foundation and Its Beneficiaries The San Diego Fleet Week Foundation is a California Public Benefit Corporation, founded in 2001 as a non-profit under the provisions of section 501c(3) of the IRS Code. As a Public Benefit Corporation, the San Diego Fleet Week Foundation donates proceeds in excess of operating expenses from Fleet Week San Diego to charities that provide critical support to military families. This past year, the Navy Morale Welfare and Recreation Fund, and the local chapters of the Armed Services YMCA, the USO and the Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society were recipients. Our Mission The mission of Fleet Week San Diego is to properly pay tribute to and to thank San Diego’s military service men and women for “Serving America Twice” in the defense of our nation and as volunteers in improving the quality of our communities. Fleet Week San Diego’s magic is in the power of the partnership between our communities and the men and women who serve our nation in the naval services. These great young Americans felt a call to serve the country and are routinely sent to represent our nation, and to defend our strategic interests at great personal risk. Hours are long, pay is low, and physical hardships and family separations are part of the job. San Diegans feel a uniquely close bond to their Sailors and Marines and hundreds of thousands turn out to demonstrate that support and to enjoy the fun and excitement of world-class special events. Join Us Your company can show its support for our military personnel through the Fleet Week 2011 Program. For more information on Fleet Week, please contact Kelly MCClellan at (858) 668-3330 or
