Final Results of Class 40th Gift


Sean Coffey recently shared with the class officers the final numbers for our 40th Class Gift (all gifts donated before December, 31, 2018, were included in our totals).  As a reminder, our gift provided funds to support the following four areas:

  • Support to the USNA Admissions Office for the STEM summer camps
  • Support for the Academy’s Center for Ethical Leadership
  • Support for Athletic Excellence
  • Support for the Naval Academy Fund

Clearly ’78 has a generous heart.  Not only did we meet our goal of raising $1,500,000; we raised over 150% of goal by raising $2,260,567.  There is something else for which we should all be very proud; our class participation rate was 50%, well above the fleet average of around 25%.  THANK YOU, ’78!

I want to also thank Sean for his efforts in leading us to this goal.  ATTA-BOY!

Wishing you all the best in 2019…

Fair winds…
