Why Give?

Naval Academy Fund

A gift to the Naval Academy Fund has the power to elevate and transform the Naval Academy, the midshipman experience, and the USNA alumni community. The Fund is the lifeblood of Academy support because it provides versatile, unrestricted resources for the Brigade of Midshipmen, the Alumni Association and the Foundation. This flexibility allows the Superintendent to direct support to where the needs and opportunities are the greatest. While the government funds the U.S. Naval Academy’s core operations, loyal donors establish and maintain the margin of excellence.

So far, more than 34,000 donors have made commitments to the campaign, including more than $10 million to the Naval Academy Fund last year. Concluding in 2020, the impact of the Campaign will be felt by current and future midshipmen as well as generations of alumni. To recognize the continued commitment of our donors, the Foundation created a display at the Armel-Leftwich Visitor Center that recognizes both lifetime and annual leading donors to the Naval Academy Fund.
