The Air Force Academy Fund
USAFA Endowment End of Year Fundraising Push help boost graduate giving to the Academy.
At least 1,500 graduates still need to give between now and December 31 to reach our goal. The Academy graduate participation rate of 12% is modest in comparison to participation rates of Navy 24% and Army 29%. Help us reach our participation goal!
"We've had an extraordinary year and overall fundraising goals will be met.
The focus now is boosting our participation rate."
-General (Ret) Stephen Lorenz, USAFA '73
President and CEO of the USAFA Endowment
Graduate giving participation rates are significant for many reasons:
- Participation factors into national rankings like the U.S. News & World Report. Participation is a key criterion in most higher education ranking methodologies.
- Participation is used for peer benchmarking and is measured by all colleges, universities, and service academies.
- Graduate participation helps attract other forms of private funding. Participation is a measure by which many corporations and foundations rate graduate involvement, a key consideration when making major gifts and grants to the Academy.
Help us now by making your year-end tax deductible gift to the Air Force Academy Fund which supports cadet "margin of excellence programs" such as: Character Development Programs and Seminars, Cadet Clubs and Intramurals, and Undergraduate Research. In addition, gifts provide support for graduate programs and services like: Class Legacy Program and Chapter Programs. Finally, your gift supports Academy priorities like the Center for Character and Leadership Development, the Rando Fund and the Risner Senior Scholar.
Your gift before December 31 will make a big difference!
