West Point Parents Fund

Located on West Point, the West Point Association of Graduates (WPAOG) proudly serves as both the alumni association and fundraising arm for the United States Military Academy. Our mission is “to serve West Point and the Long Gray Line.” WPAOG functions as the Academy's fundraising arm because military personnel and representatives of the federal government are prohibited by law from soliciting funds, goods, or services.

Why does WPAOG seek annual support for West Point?
Contrary to popular belief, the United States Military Academy is not funded solely by federal tax dollars. While the Academy receives federal funding to support its core programs, which provide the basic requirements to earn a Bachelor of Science degree and a commission in the United States Army, many projects and activities that are of great value receive minimal to zero funding from the government. These programs are needed in a highly competitive environment to recruit and educate the very best.

Donations from West Point graduates, parents, corporations, foundations, and friends fill this funding gap. Gifts from generous donors support the Margin of Excellence– unique experiences and extraordinary developmental programs that go above and beyond the Academy’s core programming.

A Letter from BG(R) Peter M. Dawkins '59

Mary & Pete Dawkins '59

As another year begins, I reflect on the powerful ability of the Long Gray Line to come together in support of one another and to serve our nation. I also watch with admiration and pride as a new class of cadets graduates and I find these new graduates to be nothing short of extraordinary.
