Patrons Party For those seeking an elevated experience, a $5,000 sponsorship provides access for two to our exclusive VIP pre-event. This includes high-end wine and liquor tastings, gourmet bites and a special guest speaker set in an exclusive private venue. This experience not only enhances your evening, but makes the entire event possible through your generous support.
Most students arrive to NPS after 8 to 12 years to military service, often after enduring multiple deployments to hazardous regions, separated from their families for extended periods. Monterey becomes a sanctuary for them, a time to prioritize time with family while advancing their education.

After graduating from NPS, these students return to the fast-paced duties of military service, equipped with enhanced skills and knowledge to tackle the national security challenges ahead. The Naval Postgraduate School Foundation remains steadfast in its commitment to enhancing the student and family experience during their time on the Central Coast.

This event's objective is to build support for the Naval Postgraduate School’s students who are valued members of our community and for the School’s mission to equip our nation's military leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to address the national security challenges of today and tomorrow.

By supporting NPS, we are investing in the future of our community and our nation.
