The ship relies on the generosity of people like you to keep her afloat. You may specify whether the gift is unrestricted and can be used for any purpose the organization sees fit, or restricted.

Restricted gifts are reserved for specific purposes, such as the Dry Dock Fund. Restricted funds provide reassurance that your contributions will be used in a manner you have chosen.

Unrestricted gifts, or gifts made for the General Fund, can be used for any purpose, most likely day-to-day operational costs like electricity, water and rent for port dockage. An unrestricted gift represents instant reserves, as it can be used for any purpose.
