Parent and Family Giving


It's a unique honor to have a son, daughter or relative serving as a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy. The pride you feel for your cadet will only grow as they progress through their USAFA and Air Force career.

It's that pride in family and devotion to service to our nation that prompts many to ask, "What can I do to help support my cadet and the Academy along the way?"

Serving You & Your Cadet

Parent & Family Giving was established by the USAFA Endowment to help families play a transformative role in the success of their cadet through active philanthropy and volunteerism. Serving you through our office on the grounds of the Air Force Academy, we have an inside view of administrative priorities, campus activities and the day-to-day lives of the cadets. We strive to:

  • Connect – We're here to help you connect with other USAFA families and assist in aligning your unique interests with Academy priorities.
  • Partner – We'll meet your family where it is philanthropically and work together to develop strategies that maximize your family's impact on the Academy and the cadet experience.
  • Invite – We'll help you explore opportunities for expanding the margin of excellence that distinguishes Air Force Academy cadets from their peers in academics, athletics, leadership development and officer training.
