This rating was published 05/01/2019 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Naval Institute Foundation was organized to operate exclusively to raise funds for the charitable and educational purposes to further the mission and policies of the U. S. Naval Institute. For nearly 150 years, the Naval Institute has been the intellectual heart of the naval profession. It gives voice to those who seek the finest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. At its core, the Institute is an open, independent, nonpartisan forum where those who dare to read, think, speak, and write can take issue with senior positions--not as an act of insubordination, but as a step forward to advance the understanding of sea power and other issues critical to global security.

The Naval Institute is a private, not-for-profit educational institution. It receives no government funding. Classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3), the Institute operates from revenues generated by book sales, membership dues, advertising income, and from tax-deductible gifts made to the Naval Institute Foundation.
