Cal Maritime Endowments

Endowments provide an ongoing source of revenue for the University and can be created to support any campus project or program.


Double Your Gift with the Endowment Matching Program

With an initial $3.5 million in matching funds available from Cal Maritime Academy Foundation’s successful Vessel Donation Program, there is flexibility to have an impact on the activity or program that motivates or excited you. The minimum gift to establish an endowment that will be matched is $25,000, but gifts at any level to an already-established endowment will be matched. Also, a donor can take up to 5 years to meet the $25,000 threshold. Your contributions to endowments can support almost any aspect of Cal Maritime lift, from scholarships to athletics, endowed faculty positions, research opportunities and more. Give to what you really care about and turn your excitement into real impact!
