In a labor intensive industry such as education, where student-to-teacher ratios are a competitive advantage, there are significant costs associated with have the best people working at the New York Military Academy. People are NYMA’s greatest asset — and its greatest expense.

Your generosity enables our cadets to immerse in a rigorous academic curriculum, a robust character education, and rise through the ranks as leaders. NYMA students learn in an atmosphere that is both challenging and supportive.
Your gift to the New York Military Academy gives the students and faculty of NYMA the opportunity to learn and lead with mind and spirit.
Since 1889 NYMA has grown from an abandoned wooden hotel on thirty acres of ground to a sprawling campus of the most beautiful countryside in the world. Pictured here is a wall of Jones Barracks going up in 1910, named in honor of our second Superintendent Col. Sebastian Jones. NYMA’s Academic Building dates back just as long, with it’s chapel dating to 1927. Constant up-keep is necessary and essential to keep NYMA’s traditions alive as the future continues to unfold “through these portals.”
As opposed to annual gifts, which cover yearly operating expenses, endowed funds provide long-term income to assist with all of NYMA’s needs. Because only the income from the principal — not the principal itself – is spent, endowed funds provide money for NYMA in perpetuity. Endowed funds can be established for a specified purpose, or as unrestricted funds to meet the greatest needs of the school. For more on stewardship and establishing an endowed fund call NYMA at (845)534-3710, ext. 4227.

Ways to Give
You can choose to create a lasting legacy for NYMA by naming the school in your will. Besquest options include:
A specific bequest of cash or real property, designating a set dollar amount or specific piece of property.
A proportionate bequest representing a percentage of your estate.
A residual bequest which distributes the balance of our estate after other specific bequest have been distributed.
A life insurance policy that is no longer essential or valuable to you might be a great value to NYMA. In most cases, when you make the Academy the irrevocable beneficiary of the policy, you will receive an immediate income tax deduction (the amount depends upon the type of policy contributed.). We have a professional who can help you get a policy that will benefit your family as well as the Academy. Please give the school a call at 845-534-3710, ext. 4227 to find out more.
A life income gift provides lifelong income benefits for yourself or another beneficiary (you or the beneficiary must be at least 50 years old) and the fit assist will go to the Academy. Setting up an irrevocable life income gift entitles you to an income tax deduction today and ensures that you or our beneficiary has income for life.
The Best Experience Ever
Our hearts stand at attention remembering our days at NYMA
"At NYMA we learned duty."
Behind the name of the Academy there lie those more intangible assets of rich tradition, high prestige and unfailing loyalty, which are the should of any institution. There is an esprit de corps which, instilled into the youngest cadet soon after their arrival at Cornwall, pervades the ranks of the cadet battalion and the thousands of alumni in all parts of the world.
