The United States Naval Academy’s Strategic Plan 2020 required funding for six Centers of Excellence, including: Academics, Admissions, Ethical Leadership, Athletics, Naval Heritage, and Quality of Life. The plan also included the creation of a new center for Cyber Security and a new Physical Mission Center.
CCS arrived at the early stages of planning the campaign. We helped provide the guidance, structure, and important benchmarking information that would enable the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation to launch this historic and monumental undertaking. CCS also provided counsel to the Foundation to help its board and leadership make important decisions, track campaign progress, and encourage even more philanthropy.
By aligning the support of private philanthropy with the Academy’s priorities, the campaign has generated enthusiasm among alumni and other supporters about the future of the Academy. As a result, the Foundation has secured the largest gifts in the history of the Academy.
