Alumni — Will you meet the 1889 Scholarship Challenge?
Help Meet the 1889 Scholarship Challenge!

Leave a legacy of support at MMA — From now until the end of Homecoming (Sept. 30-Oct. 2), MMA Board of Trustee Chris Gentry '88 will donate $100 for each new alumnus who joins the 1889 Scholarship Fund campaign — until we reach a total of 200 alumni signed as 1889 Scholarship supporters. That's nearly $13,000 in added impact! 

Thank you to Chris Gentry, MMA Class of 1988, for this challenge!

With a recurring gift of $18.89 each month (or $226.68 each year), 1889 Scholarship supporters provide ongoing gifts to support cadet education. Currently, more than 65% of MMA cadets receive financial aid to attend the Academy. Programs like the 1889 Scholarship Fund provide essential financial aid support to families seeking an MMA education for their sons.

Teaching him how to set and achieve goals and building his confidence while in a safe environment are among the things she is grateful for about MMA.
