President’s Message – 2019 All Academy Challenge


This year’s All Academy Challenge kicks off today, 30 May, and runs for 5 days, ending on 3 June. The winner of this annual challenge against our Academy rivals at Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine is determined by the highest participation rate. In 2018, Navy reached an impressive 7% participation and this year we’re hoping to surpass that and beat EVERYONE. Track Navy’s progress and make a gift at the following link:

It is not the size of the gift that counts but rather our participation. However, keep in mind your gift will provide immediate support to the Academy and the Brigade of Midshipmen and you can choose where your gift is used. 

Finally, our Naval Academy Foundation will give away four tickets to this year’s Army/Navy game if we surpass the 629 donors we brought in on the first day of the Challenge last year! Any donor who gives today will have the opportunity to win the tickets and watch Navy Beat Army on 14 December. 

Beat Army!

Fair winds…
