CAMPAIGN PRIORITY

Supporting MMA Today

Dismantling an 8,000-horse-power diesel engine, and then reconstructing it. Navigating the 500-foot State of Maine from ports from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Charleston, South Carolina. Virtually guiding an oil tanker into Los Angeles Harbor, with help from MMA’s state-of-the-art control-room simulator. Analyzing samples from tidal pools up and down the Maine coast. These are just a few of the extraordinary activities students engage in every year, thanks in part to the Academy’s Annual Fund.

Where does the Annual Fund fit in the campaign? As one of the top priorities. The Annual Fund’s power lies in participation: together, many gifts, regardless of size, combine to make MMA’s distinct offerings possible, things like small class sizes, hands-on research projects and the training ship.
