Why Give?

The Fund for Athletic Excellence

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

Even with many spring competitions canceled, Navy Athletics continued to do remarkable things. Some notable achievements included a 13-8-1 Army-Navy record, 11 Conference Championships, the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, 21 All-Americans, 24 Academic All-Americans, 3 Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year, 12 national or conference Coaches of the Year, 10 national or conference Athletes of the Year and 3 conference Rookies of the Year.
