DMA’s Capital Campaign 2016-2017
Promoting Excellence ~ Raising the Bar
It is with tremendous excitement and optimism that we share with you the next chapter of
DMA. The Academy was established in 2003 and since that time the vision has always been
to have a fully enclosed campus and provide our cadets with the most complete and
fulfilling high school experience possible.
Ways to Give
Gifts of Cash - the most common methods of
giving are to write a check or make a gift using
your VISA or MasterCard. Most gifts are tax
deductible to the extent allowed by your
personal tax situation.
Securities - Many donors realize substantial tax
advantages by transferring gifts of appreciated
stock to the Delaware Miltary Academy. Capital
gains on the amount of appreciation are avoided
, and the donor receives a tax deduction for the
stock’s full market value. Gifts of real estate are
also accepted. Please consult with your tax
advisor and our CFO, Kenneth Gatson, if you
wish to make a gift of securities or real estate.
Matching Gifts - Many companies will match
donations to the Delaware Military Academy by
their employees. Please contact your employer’s
human resources or community relations office
to see if your gift can be matched.
Naming (or Commemorative) Gifts - Many
opportunities exist for funding specific segments
of our capital campaign. See the facing list for
Restricted and Unrestricted Gifts - Gifts of any
size may be designated for a specific campaign
goal or may be left unrestricted. Unrestricted
gifts give the Delaware Military Academy the
flexibility to allocate funds where and when
they are most needed.

Total Projected Cost:
This academic wing will also provide classroom spaces for faculty who currently
share space with other teachers. The Monolithic Dome is a full size athletic
center designed to provide our cadets with much needed equipment and space
to fully maximize their athletic potential. The new athletic center will
incorporate safety mechanisms currently unavailable.
We ask you to please give serious consideration in support of this most
worthwhile endeavor and know that your contribution to this project will
positively affect the lives of future generations of cadets as they prepare to
lead our great nation through the 21st century.
With warm regards,
Edward J. Capodanno
Chairman of the Board
DMA has outgrown it’s current facilities and can no
longer provide an ehanced curriculum due to a
shortage of classroom availablility. Our athletic
programs continue to excel creating an urgent need
for an athletic facility. To that end, DMA has broken
ground on a state of the art building featuring a
Monolithic Dome design. In addition the building will
also feature an academic wing that will house eight
additional classroom spaces to enhance our business
technology program and expand our STEM offerings.
