125 for the 125th


The facilities found on the campus of Fork Union Military Academy have a daily impact on the lives of our cadets, faculty, and staff, and are a major factor in our ability to serve the young men we educate, develop, and inspire.

The Academy’s learning, living, dining, and athletic facilities have been developed over the years and are well maintained, but are in varied conditions due to the unavoidable factors of age and use. The time is right to be sure there is a campus that will be able to support future generations of young men and those who will nurture them in Body, Mind and Spirit.

Giving for Infrastructure Support

The Board of Trustees through its Campus Master Planning process reviewed the physical needs of the Academy community to develop a list of priority projects that prepare Fork Union Military Academy to meet the challenges of the future.

A gift to the infrastructure will impact the quality of the education a young man receives while also improving the Academy’s ability to attract and retain the next generation of cadets, as well as the best and brightest faculty and staff.

You can support the Academy infrastructure through a gift of at least $12,500 that is either paid in immediately available funds or through a commitment mechanism described by the Academy. Gifts may be made to the listed opportunities, or another infrastructure approved by the Campus Master Plan, and are subject to applicable Academy Gift Policy parameters.

All pledges are to be fulfilled or guaranteed through a written plan by the close of the campaign on October 15, 2025.

Capital Projects & Naming Opportunities

In connection with the planned improvements through the Campus Master Plan, there are numerous capital projects, many of which provide a donor (or group of donors) with the opportunity to name a facility, room, or campus area. Projects may be named after the donor(s), in honor or memory of another individual, or funded anonymously, subject to Academy Gift Policy and the level of support associated with the naming opportunity.

General Infrastructure

Given the vast campus that has evolved over many years, there are numerous immediate needs for projects such as roads, sidewalks, parking areas, utilities, plus general repair and preventive maintenance. The Academy desires to establish a fund through the Endowment dedicated to supporting the Academy’s infrastructure.
