Area of Greatest Need

Gifts to the Area of Greatest Need are vital to the university because they provide the most flexible source of funding for our most immediate (and sometimes unanticipated) needs.

President Fund for Excellence

The President’s Fund for Excellence provides the President with the ability to financially support targeted initiatives, pursue emerging opportunities, seek innovation, and support student, faculty and staff excellence.

Academic Programs

The fund for Academic Programs enhances the cadet educational experience by funding state of the art technology and laboratories, among other initiatives, all promoting career-readiness and heightened value to future employers.


The Athletics fund provides support for equipment, training and travel, all aiding our student-athletes in their success in competition, the classroom and beyond.

Campus Enhancements

Donations to the Campus Enhancements fund will fund beautification and on-campus amenities projects that will have a lasting impact on Cal Maritime as a place to learn, live and thrive.

Faculty Development

The Faculty Development fund seeks to enhance the school’s intellectual life by supporting faculty research and professional development. The Faculty Development Fund supports faculty in situations when budgets are insufficient to support faculty-led activities.


Scholarships allow us to welcome highly motivated students to our campus and can often mean the difference between a young person attending the Academy or not going to college at all. Scholarships are vital to making a Cal Maritime education accessible to more qualified students and to providing ongoing support to returning students.

Student Life

Donations to the Student Life fund support student activities and programs that enhance life at Cal Maritime outside the classroom.
