What is the Annual Fund Vision 20 | 20?
Maine Maritime Academy’s vision is to provide the best marine-related education of any small college. But, it’s clear: to achieve our vision, we must increase fundraising capacity by 2020 in order to keep tuition and fees affordable for all students, and to assure the MMA of tomorrow is economically sound and sustainable. To help us in this quest, the Harold Alfond Foundation has challenged Maine Maritime Academy to raise a cumulative total of $2.25 million over the next three fiscal years (July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2020) and increase our alumni participation rate to 20% in 2020. When we meet that challenge, we will receive $750,000 from the Harold Alfond Foundation toward scholarships for MMA students. That’s equivalent to a 33% boost on every gift. Someone helped you fund your education. Now, you can help the next generation of mariners by contributing to the MMA Annual Fund. Your gift of any amount helps us reach the Annual Fund Vision 20 | 20.
The Mariners are proud to announce a fundraising campaign to completely renovate the men’s basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, and soccer locker rooms, as well as the athletic training room, the athletic equipment room, and the staff/officials locker room. The anticipated cost of the project is $400,000.
We know the impact that upgraded facilities can have on recruiting. We have overhauled our weight and cardio rooms. Prospective students – both athletes and non-athletes – have been impressed with those spaces and what they say about our dedication to fitness as well as the athlete half of the student-athlete equation. The addition of women’s locker rooms for each team has had a dramatic impact on female enrollment, as well as the caliber of athlete that we attract.
Maine Maritime Athletics needs you in the game!
Maine Maritime Academy is currently seeking $300,000 to renovate the floor, bleachers, and bleacher wall in Margaret Chase Smith Gymnasium in order to provide a first-class venue for the teams that call it home. Your generosity will help us provide the home they deserve.
The floor in Smith Gym is original. It has provided 56 years of service to the Academy. Its boards have expanded and contracted with the temperature for more than 20,400 days and nights. It is well beyond its intended lifespan, and keeping up with repairs becomes more of a challenge each day. Our athletes and visiting teams deserve better than broken boards. Our fans, all of them, deserve a comfortable seat. We must show our future Mariners that we value their athletic experience. And we need your help.
Please consider giving to this renovation project so the memories will live on!
Gifts to the Annual Fund are directed towards the greatest need and give MMA the flexibility to take advantage of emerging opportunities and to respond to unanticipated needs. If you would like to target an area of focus for your gift, please designate as ‘Other’ and note your area of focus, such as an academic program, an athletic program, or financial aid.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Maine Maritime Academy.
