Naval Academy Family,It’s the best time of the year – we’re seven days away from BEATING ARMY again!While the midshipmen are preparing to wrap up an unusual fall semester and head to West Point for a historic game, alumni, parents, and friends of the Naval Academy have shown up to help support the Brigade through the Midshipman Activities Fund (MAF).
While we set an initial small goal to get a boost in funding for the MAF, through the help of the community and several generous donors we’re nearing $300,000 in support for the Brigade. What started off as a small way to get donors together to boost morale on the Yard, has, in just 45 days, resulted in gifts that will provide nearly 30% of the annual need for private support for MAF-related activities. With seven days left in our campaign, and in a push for a strong finish, another generous donor has stepped up to unlock a $25,000 gift to help push past $300,000 for the MAF.
Please make a gift to the Midshipman Activities Fund before our campaign wraps up on 12 December to help us reach $300,000 and unlock an additional $25,000. We’re just $35,000 away from achieving that goal and your gift will be put to use immediately to provide the flexible funds necessary to respond to the challenges to Brigade morale presented by COVID-19.
If you are unable to support today, please consider becoming an advocate for the fund and spread the word in your network to help us surpass $300,000.Let’s BEAT ARMY!
