Make a Gift

Army and Navy Academy’s long tradition of excellence is made possible by the generous support of alumni, parents, and friends. Every gift is integral to empowering the Academy to further its mission of educating, mentoring, and developing good character and leadership in young men.

With 112 years of academic excellence, military tradition and leadership development, the history of Army and Navy Academy runs deep and is multi-faceted. However, the history is incomplete without acknowledging the philanthropy that was, and is, interwoven to make ANA the place for boys to be bold. Beginning in 1950, when Academy benefactors Arthur and Gertrude Anderson gifted Army and Navy Academy the prime beachfront property where the school still resides, the Academy relies on the generosity of the entire ANA community to ensure the continuous education of tomorrow’s leaders.

Throughout the years, cadets have benefited from the gifts given to further them and their journey at ANA. Gifts to the academy have supported, and continue to support, financial assistance to cadets whose families otherwise would not be able to afford an ANA education, the construction and upcoming renovation of the campus facilities, a robust and rewarding athletics program, and recruiting and retaining highly skilled faculty, staff, and former military personnel.

Simply put, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of running an elite military boarding school. When our community comes together to support the Academy, cadets benefit. As Army and Navy Academy looks forward to what the next 112 years of helping students dream big looks like, we know with certainty that it will continue to include the generous support of you, our ANA community.

All gifts are 100% tax-deductible, and go towards enhancing the Cadet experience and campus facilities.

Our volunteer community plays a crucial role — their ability to understand and embrace the school’s mission, to share its core values, and to fully support its curriculum, faculty, and staff are key elements to the program’s success.

From volunteer help to philanthropic efforts; sharing special talents, to hosting international students and admissions receptions; our volunteers are highly valued members of our ANA community. There are many ways to volunteer and give back to the Army and Navy Academy.

It can be in the classroom, on the field, at our many campus events, or fundraisers throughout the year! We are always happy to receive new volunteers!

As an independent school, Army and Navy Academy is a nonprofit and receives no financial support from government entities. Our operating budget comes solely from tuition, endowment income, charitable support, and income from auxiliary programs such as summer camps and facility rentals.

Since tuition and fees only provide 73% of ANA’s operating budget, the Academy relies on donations to balance the budget — these funds are needed to invest in programs that support and enhance the Cadet experience, including the recruitment and retention of top notch faculty.
