Class of 1977 Challenge

Every Gift Counts Make Your Gift Count Even More!

For every one percent increase (up to five percent) in alumni donor participation during 2006, the Naval Academy will receive $200,000 from a member of the Class of 1977! And,for every class that beats the 2006 donor participation percentage achieved by the Class of 1977, the Naval Academy will receive an additional $5,000!

Meeting the terms of the Challenge of '77 will result in a transformational gift of more than $1 million to benefit the Naval Academy and the Brigade of Midshipmen.
