About Us

The Army War College Foundation, Inc., established in 1977, is proud to provide the "margin of excellence" to the academic experience at the U.S. Army War College. The Foundation has enhanced the educational experience of our students through stewardship of traditional programs.

The Foundation funding has directly supported student and faculty events: such as National Security Seminar Week, honorariums for distinguished guest lecturers, writing awards for students and faculty, texts for the College's professional library, projects of the International Fellows Program, and financial assistance for high-level conferences and exercises. Since 2002, the Army War College Foundation has funded jointly, with Dickinson College, the General of the Army Omar N. Bradley Chair of Strategic Leadership. Since 2009 the Foundation has funded the Francis W. de Serio Chair for Strategic Intelligence.
Individual, foundation and corporate constituents are steadfast in their contribution to our national defense through stewardship of academic excellence and traditions at the United States Army War College.

The Alumni Association of the U.S. Army War College (now known as the Office of Alumni Affairs) was formed on May 19, 1967 as an organization that would enable graduates to stay connected and promote the interests of the Army War College. The organization has grown from an association with a few founding members to one with over 10,000 current members today. The organization serves as the U. S. Army War College Gift Shop (The Sutler Store); it holds the alumni database and it supports a wide range of programs for current class members and graduates and their families. Alumni Affairs sponsors and holds the copyright on the official history of the U.S. Army War College.

The Army War College Foundation, Inc. and the Alumni Association of the U.S. Army War College merged on August 1, 2008. The organization remains committed to the best possible support to the College and its graduates and friends.
