Leadership 44 Capital Campaign

The Leadership 44 Capital Campaign runs from 2009-2013 and is raising $8,000,000 for the replacement of six 44-foot Luder Yawls built in 1964 with eight new 44-foot vessels that will be utilized throughout the year as part of our Coastal Sail Training program for cadets.  This campaign is a partnership between the Alumni Association, Coast Guard Academy, Coast Guard Foundation and the Academy Parent's Association.  The Alumni Association is working to raise at least $4,000,000 toward the overall goal.  More information is available at www.cgaleadership44.org.
