Superintendent's Circle
The Superintendent's Circle recognizes all donors that make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to the Superintendent's Annual Fund, or the West Point Parents Fund within the calendar year (January 1 - December 31).
The Superintendent's Annual Fund and the West Point Parents Fund are comprised of unrestricted gifts that strengthen the Margin of Excellence. These funds provide opportunities that enrich cadets' 47-month experience and allow West Point to remain one the nation's leading academic institutions. Members of the Superintendent's Circle take a leading role in providing the Corps of Cadets with research projects, extracurricular clubs, academic centers, tutoring programs, cultural immersion experiences, club sports, and athletics facilities, to name a few. Moreover, members provide the Academy with the greatest flexibility to respond to immediate and emerging needs, thereby ensuring that today's cadets have all the tools needed to develop into tomorrow's leaders.
