U. S. Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association
To provide services to, and promote fellowship among, the Alumni of the Coast Guard Academy. We raise funds to provide "margins of excellence" support to the Corps of Cadets, the Academy, and the Coast Guard in order to preserve the traditions and enhance the reputation of the Coast Guard Academy.
Serve the Membership
The Alumni Association will deliver best-in-class member service in the areas of fellowship facilitation, career assistance and networking. The Association will support alumni-related activities and services in New London and beyond and will actively engage with non-member alumni, cadets, parents, and other friends of the Academy to continually encourage their connection to each other, the Academy, and membership in the Association.
Support the Academy
The Alumni Association will directly support programs to increase the Coast Guard Academy’s overall cadet experience as well as those that elevate the Academy’s national reputation. The primary means of Association support will be to raise and provide funds for programs across all aspects of the Academy including admissions, academics, athletics, and cadet life. The Association will coordinate with and support other organizations or groups that seek to raise the visibility of the Academy and the entire Service.
Strengthen the Association
The Association will provide the membership with the utmost stewardship of Association assets including accurate, clear, and transparent financial information for every dollar received and expended. Further, the Association leadership and Board of Directors will develop a sustainable business plan to ensure we have a strong infrastructure to maximize mission effectiveness. The Alumni Association will pursue an aggressive brand strategy focused on supporting fundraising and membership initiatives using effective communication tools to reach the multi-faceted demographic of our alumni, parents, and friends.
