Ways To Give

The USAFA Endowment is dedicated to providing transformative private support to the Air Force Academy.

In order to substantially increase the impact of philanthropy at the United States Air Force Academy, the USAFA Endowment has a commitment to increase the amount of unrestricted funds that are available to help advance Academy priorities.

Unrestricted gifts provide the Endowment with the flexibility to respond to annual operational needs and priorities of the Academy, as set forth by the Superintendent. In accordance with USAFA Endowment guidelines, 10% of all gifts are allocated for unrestricted use, to be used for one or more of the following purposes: cadet programs; support for the Association of Graduates and other Academy-affiliated foundations; and operations of the USAFA Endowment.

As a 501(c)(3) charity, the Endowment provides donors with a broad variety of giving options and funds to support, making it easy to tailor donor interests with Academy priorities. We strive to make the act of supporting the Academy personally fulfilling and efficient for every donor.

Gifts can be classified by intent or type. Donors can support the Academy through the Endowment in several ways: annual giving, class gifts, estate gifts, memorial gifts, or funds for specific purposes
