How You Can Help

The Oliver Hazard Perry Shipyard is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. With your support, Erie will soon be home to an Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate. The Perry Shipyard aims to revive the extraordinary legacy of Commodore Perry and his special relationship to Erie. The shipyard will be a place to bring together the community through programs for education, veterans, families, and the public.

Donate today to support the Perry Shipyard Project. This will be a dynamic way to educate the public, many of whom never boarded a fighting vessel, on its role, capabilities, and life onboard the ship.

Payments are tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please consult your tax advisor for your actual tax deduction and credits.
