The USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2001 following the merger of the USMMA Alumni Association and the USMMA Foundation. The USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation (AAF) is the 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization established for the benefit of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Along with its mission, the AAF coordinates several alumni, parent, and midshipmen activities and provides numerous services and benefits to graduates, organizations, parents, friends, and family. USMMA alumni, parents, organizations, and friends worldwide support the AAF through their participation in our many events and their lifelong connection to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
