In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that’s through donations to community organizations, celebrating doctors and nurses at shift changes, or reaching out to a neighbor to help with groceries, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.
As you know, our organization is dedicated to our mission of educating, mentoring, and developing good character and leadership in young men.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on Cadets of our Warrior community, we have established the Emergency Financial Assistance Fund. This is a restricted fund in which designated gifts will support Cadets and their families who may have unanticipated need for financial assistance due to the current pandemic. By contributing to the Emergency Financial Assistance Fund, you will help us serve our Warrior Community, maintain our enrollment, continue to retain our outstanding faculty, and support the needs of our Warrior Families in need during this challenging time.
Currently, on average, over 20% of domestic families apply for financial assistance each year. With the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Academy is expecting a much higher percentage of families to be applying for financial assistance. The Academy would like the opportunity to help as many families as possible this year and we believe the contributions to this fund will allow us that opportunity.
