The Superintendent’s Annual Fund strengthens the Margin of Excellence at West Point, the programs that go beyond the federally funded core elements of a cadet’s education and training.

The Superintendent’s Annual Fund enables the Corps of Cadets to

  • Explore their personal interests in one of the 130+ cadet clubs
  • Play on an NCAA or Corps Squad team
  • Participate in a Staff Ride to a historic battlefield
  • Study overseas and immerse themselves in another culture
  • Work on a capstone project or present research on Projects Day
  • Go on a trip section to another Army or national agency
  • Intern with an NGO or at a corporation
  • Beat Navy!

Such opportunities are truly what define the Margin of Excellence and are what make West Point the world’s renowned leadership development institution.

Mike Krzyzewski '69

“The foundation of leadership I learned as a cadet not only shaped me as a player and a coach but also as a son, a brother, a husband, and a father. More than 50 years after graduation, I firmly believe that West Point is the greatest leadership school in the world.”

Mike Krzyzewski ’69
