Called To Serve, DarING to Lead

Called to Serve, Daring to Lead: The Naval Academy Campaign is a historic initiative supporting the strategic priorities of the United States Naval Academy. The U.S. Naval Academy Foundation had 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 before marking the campaign’s public launch in Fall 2018. To date, Called to Serve, Daring to Lead has raised more than $420 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, which will continue through the campaign’s close in Fall 2020, strives to expand the campaign’s reach and awareness of its importance to the entire alumni and friend community and attract particularly significant support for several key areas including international programs, the Midshipman Activities Fund, a future Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation Center and the unrestricted Naval Academy Fund.
