About the United States Air Force Academy Endowment

Private support of the Air Force Academy provides so much more than a “margin of excellence”, a higher education phrase sometimes used to describe the role of private philanthropy. Donor impact, however, is immeasurable.

We believe strongly, as many do, that our Academy is a vital national resource — one that is deserving of our emotional and financial support. The Academy's mission is simply too important to leave to the vagaries of federal funding alone. As a result, the USAFA Endowment works to actively identify and cultivate key relationships with current and potential Academy donors to support the superintendent's strategic priorities.

We also believe that a foundation, singularly charged with the abiding stewardship of donated funds and constituted in such a way as to ensure the permanency and efficacy of the gift, is the most effective structure for providing this support to the Academy.
