Lending a Hand

It's Better to Give...

For the past six years on #GivingTuesday, the International Day of Giving, people from all over the globe have joined together in supporting many worthy causes, and it's been no different here at Mass Maritime. Whether it's been gifts to Scholarships, Athletics, Sea Term, Experiential Learning, and everything in between, those in the wider MMA family have helped to set new "Giving Tuesday" records each year. Support of this magnitude speaks directly to the close knit community that defines this Academy, whenever and wherever those bonds were formed.

Today, bonds are still being formed within an Academy whose cadets who are realizing their dreams because of those who are supporting them throughout their years on Taylor's Point. Cadets like Regimental Commander Nathan Moriera whose journey you can read about here https://www.maritime.edu/news/hes-been-there. Or Executive Officer Kamil Bak and MMA's Battalion Commanders, whose experiences as cadet candidates still resonate as they lead the largest regiment in the history of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy https://www.maritime.edu/news/buc-stops-here.

It's these and countless stories like them that your support has helped create and sustain throughout the decades. In order to maintain the excellence for which Mass Maritime has come to be known, the #GivingTuesday goal this year is for 130 individuals to donate to the Academy on Tuesday December 3rd!

MMA is a "can do" kind of place, something anyone who went through here...teaches here...works here...or studies here knows well. Your support honors that legacy as today's cadets continue to define it...and doing so on a day when the world is counting on everyone to join in.
