Why Give?

Athletic Excellence

The Fund for Athletic Excellence serves as an unrestricted annual fund for Navy Athletics, providing Physical Mission support and supplemental resources for all 33 varsity programs and 16 club sports. Donations made through the USNA Foundation to The Fund for Athletic Excellence are used annually to:

•  Support Physical Mission needs to create and sustain a winning environment for all varsity programs and club sports
•  Recruit and retain outstanding coaches to serve as educators and role models for student-athletes
•  Provide Margin of Excellence resources which enhance the everyday student-athlete experience
•  Support the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) varsity athletic program, which competes against other preparatory schools, junior colleges, and college junior varsity teams

Aided by generous funding, Navy Athletics continued to do remarkable things in the most recent athletic and academic year. Some notable achievements include winning nearly two-thirds of all varsity athletics competitions, earning 21 individual All-American honors, seven Academic All-American titles, and seven Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year, defending the Patriot League President’s Cup, and capturing the Army-Navy Star Series.

The Athletics department continues to make progress on the construction of the Ron Terwilliger Center for Student-Athletes, the renovation of the USNA Golf Course and ongoing improvement to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
