Why Give?


Thanks to the unwavering support of our dedicated donors, the Development Team is committed to advancing the U.S. Naval Academy's mission of becoming the nation's premier institution for undergraduate education, leadership, athletics, and character development. 

Partnering closely with alumni, parents, and friends from across the nation, the Development Team strives to deepen their connection to the Naval Academy through philanthropy. We achieve this mission by working directly with donors and engaging like-minded individuals through impactful events that showcase our esteemed faculty, staff, and accomplished alumni. 

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who choose to invest in the Naval Academy and contribute to the success of the Brigade of Midshipmen.
