WMA Museum Roof Repair

We trust you and your loved ones are safe and doing well during these continued trying times. COVID-19 continues to impact all of us and our daily lives. While we have suspended all non-essential spending, the Museum can no longer put off some expenses that must be immediately remedied. We have held off on asking for assistance for these repairs as long as we could, but the roof situation will not allow us to delay any further. Read More

WMA Museum Endowment

Since the inception of the Wentworth Military Academy Museum (“Museum”), one of the constant questions we have received has concerned our long-term viability. This singular issue has been an impediment not only to some of our fundraising efforts, but also to the overall long-term confidence level of our endeavor to preserve and protect the 137-year legacy of Wentworth Military Academy. In other words, “what will happen when there are no more Old Boys to donate and keep the doors of the Museum open?” I am pleased to report that question has now been answered. Read More

Our Plan

visibility

Visualize

This is a three phased operation (acquire, secure, and memorialize) and the intent is for it to be planned and executed simultaneously using four lines of effort (artifact, fundraising, building, technology), with a local “strike force” serving as the reserve for immediate response to support all four LOEs/committees. The endstate is achieved when all requested memorabilia is owned and managed by the WMA Alumni Association, secured in a Muster and display worthy location, and properly financed for long-term memorialization.
