The United States Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association is a non-profit organization which exists exclusively for educational and charitable purposes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Established in Washington, DC, in December 1887 as an association of graduates and commissioned officers, the Association was recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1972.  In 1991, it was organized as a corporation not-for-profit under the laws of the State of Delaware.  The Alumni Association offices are located in the Alumni Center on the grounds of the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.


In addition to providing services for and promoting fellowship among its members, a primary purpose of the Alumni Association is to raise funds that provide “margin of excellence” support for the Academy and the Corps of Cadets.  Regular members of the Association include graduates and persons who have attended the Coast Guard Academy.  Associate members include parents and friends of the Academy.  The Association currently has more than 5,400 regular members, over 1,000 Associate members, and over 900 Cadet members.  The Association is governed by a 16-person Board of Directors that is elected by the membership.
