West Point Parents Fund
Item # QDS003-02
While the Academy receives federal funding to support its core programs, which provide the basic requirements to earn a Bachelor of Science degree and a commission in the United States Army, many projects and activities that are of great value but outside the 'core' designation receive minimal to zero funding from the government. These programs are needed in a highly competitive environment to recruit and educate the very best. This is why private funding from our alumni, parents and friends is so important—it fills the gap and supports unique experiences and extraordinary developmental programs that go above and beyond the Academy’s core programming to create the Margin of Excellence and provide an educational environment like no other. If you would like to make a donation in honor of a grad, cadet or friend of WP, please add that information in the comment section on the check out screen.
