Private gifts from alumni, parents and other friends play an essential role in the Naval Academy’s ability to achieve its vision and realize its potential.

When you make a gift to the United States Naval Academy Foundation…

You contribute to the enrichment of programs and services available to the more than 55,000 Naval Academy alumni living and serving throughout the world. 

You ensure the continuation of a culture of philanthropy at the Academy by sustaining the operations of the Naval Academy Foundation. 

And you become part of an extraordinary legacy of generosity that dates back to 1848—when a group of Naval Academy alumni raised funds to commemorate four midshipmen killed in the Mexican War—and continues to shape the Academy and its future. 

There are many other ways to lend your time, energy and spirit to the Academy. Membership in the alumni association, involvement in an alumni chapter or parent club, participation in events, and feedback and insights on Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation programs all contribute to a stronger Naval Academy and alumni community. We welcome your support and involvement.
