Why Give?

Ways to Give

GiveGifts to the Naval Academy Foundation make possible a "margin of excellence" at the Naval Academy. Private giving meets the growing need for enhanced and new programs, facilities and faculty over and above the basic sufficiency provided by federal funding. Whether designated for a capital project such as the renovated Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, a scholarship for a prospective midshipman through the Athletic & Scholarship Program or a Distinguished Visiting Professor, donations transform the Naval Academy from good to great and support the Brigade of Midshipmen. 

We invite you to invest in excellence at the Naval Academy.
