As a United States service academy graduate, you're part of a legacy of excellence built by generations of America's finest men and women. We can't take this for granted. Reinforcing the success of our nation's foremost educational institutions takes ongoing commitment from all of us. We need to stand together to ensure our academies have the critical resources they need to develop future generations of leaders in a changing world.
That's what the third annual All Academy Challenge is all about. Last year the Challenge raised over $3 million to support needed programs and capital projects across four academies.
On June 1, we'll mobilize a 7-day mission to exceed last year's results. Are you up for the Challenge?
The All Academy Challenge encourages alumni of five U.S. service academies to donate to their respective institution's fundraising efforts. The Challenge creates a friendly competition to see which academy can secure "bragging rights" with the highest rate of participation.
Participation is easy: Watch for an email on June 1, linking you to the 2016 All Academy Challenge website. From there, you'll be able to donate, share your academy pride and see daily updates throughout the 7-day competition.
$5 minimum donation per alumni donor.
The percentage of success for each academy is calculated by dividing the total number of alumni donor participants for each academy by the pool of possible alumni donors for each academy. We refer to this percentage as "Participation."
