For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
Office of Advancement
Build a comprehensive advancement program to provide a pipeline of financial capital and security.
MMA needs to have sophisticated fundraising, special event, corporate and alumni programs (within a specified budget) to increase resources and allow the Academy the flexibility to move forward with current projects and act on future plans with the added financial security provided by the funds obtained by Advancement Office efforts. We will continue to build relationships with corporations in the industries we serve, corporations with key alumni working within the organizations, and corporations/industries employing or wishing to employ MMA graduates; expand use of social media to build relationships, market, raise funds and improve outreach to our constituencies; create and manage an active volunteer program and donor relations stewardship program; develop a culture of philanthropy within the entire MMA community of students, parents, alumni, friends and corporations; and work with the Athletic Department to identify, research, cultivate, solicit and steward annual and leadership donors.
