Challenge 2023 Results

From Sunday, May 7th at Reveille until Thursday, May 11th at Taps, the West Point community came together for the second West Point Challenge. We appreciate all the Old Grads, parents, and friends who supported the Challenge and encouraged others to join.

With gifts totaling $5.1 million, every part of West Point was impacted. Over 300 different funds, including 104 Directorate of Cadet Activities (DCA) Clubs, received Margin of Excellence gifts. Once again, the Class of 1972 had the highest active class participation, and this year the Class of 1997 had the most donors. A special thank you to our oldest grad, BG (R) Paul D. Phillips ’40, for his donation.

As part of the Challenge, we featured many Contests with different departments, clubs, and funds winning “bonus” Margin of Excellence funding throughout the week. All winners and the amount of additional money listed below.
