The Academy now accepts cryptocurrency and we’ve made it easy for you to donate it!

Important things to know:

  • Cryptocurrency donations (processed by FreeWill Impact Fund and Crypto for Charity) are promptly sold and the net proceeds transferred to Massachusetts Maritime Academy. The Academy does not have a payment processing account for cryptocurrency nor does it maintain a reserve of cryptocurrency, therefore all donations to Mass Maritime (via the method above) are final.
  • The Academy will acknowledge receipt of your gift but a tax receipt will be issued only by FreeWill Impact Fund.
  • Cryptocurrency is treated by the IRS as property and is subject to the same rules as non-cash charitable gifts.

If a loved one passes away you can suggest that a memorial gifts be made in memory of him or her to Massachusetts Maritime Academy. You can also set up a gift that pays tribute to their life through scholarships, athletics, or academics to name a few.

Making a gift to MMA in honor of a loved one is also a nice way to commemorate a special occasion. Gifts in memory or in honor are a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a true difference in the lives of our Cadets.

You may also permanently memorialize or honor someone important to you by: 

  • Purchasing a brick for the Brick Plaza located in the center of campus (open to all),
  • By purchasing a plaque with their name for the Chief Engineers Log (open to academy alumni only) or
  • By purchasing a plaque for the Merchant Marine Memorial (open to present and former members of the U.S. Merchant Marine only).
