Called To Serve, DarING to Lead

The Naval Academy Campaign

Called to Serve: Daring to Lead  is a $400 million fundraising campaign designed to support the strategic priorities of the United States Naval Academy. The U.S. Naval Academy Foundation has been working quietly with a core group of lead donors for several years to secure much of the funding needed for many of the Academy’s key priorities and has raised more than $373 million in support of initiatives including the Academy’s Center for Cyber Security Studies, Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership and related programs, distinguished visiting professorships and the continuing renovation and expansion of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, home to Navy football and lacrosse. This phase of the campaign strives to expand the campaign’s reach and awareness of the importance to the entire alumni and friend community, meet the initial $400 million overall goal and attract particularly significant support for several key areas including international programs, the Midshipman Welfare Fund, a future Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation Center and the unrestricted Naval Academy Fund. Additional information about the campaign’s mission and potential impact is available here.
