US Naval Academy Alumni Association

Established in 1886, the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association continues to adhere to its mission to serve and support the United States, the Naval Service, the Naval Academy and its alumni by furthering the highest standards at the Naval Academy; by seeking out, informing, encouraging and assisting outstanding, qualified young men and women to pursue careers as officers through the Naval Academy; and by initiating and sponsoring activities which perpetuate the history, traditions, memories and growth of the Naval Academy and bind alumni together in support of the highest ideals of command, citizenship and government.

Led by its Board of Trustees, the Alumni Association is also advanced by its network of more than 75 active classes102 chapters80 parent clubs and three Shared Interest groups.

The original Naval Academy Foundation, formed in 1944 and now known as the Foundation’s Athletic and Scholarship Programs division (A&SP), set out to support athletic programs at the Naval Academy through scholarships, grants and awards. In 1999, the Foundation and the Naval Academy Endowment Trust merged to form the sole fundraising entity for the Naval Academy, now known as the United States Naval Academy Foundation and led by its Board of Directors. The complementary mission of the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation is to support, promote and advance the mission of the Naval Academy by working in conjunction with Academy leadership to identify strategic and institutional priorities and by raising, managing and disbursing private gift funds that provide a margin of excellence in support of the nation’s premier leadership institution. In June 2021, it concluded its second campaign, Called to Serve, Daring to Lead, which raised $540 million for Naval Academy and Alumni Association priorities.
