The 2017 Load the Ship and Crew the Ship fundraising effort is the drive to raise $2.2 million in donations to the Area of Greatest Need and to reach at least 20% alumni participation.
Meeting this goal will allow the AAF to achieve its goals of supporting the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and its Regiment of Midshipmen with the utmost funding and support. Last year, with the dedication of alumni, parents and friends, over $2.4 million in Area of Greatest Need funds were raised. The AAF will be gifting funds to the Academy throughout the year. Additionally, funds are also being used toward the Lower Roosevelt Field project that will benefit all Midshipmen.
This effort takes place between January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2017. To ensure goals are met, Kings Point needs you. See progress below!
