The Annual Fund reaches out to alumni, parents, and friends of Carlisle Military School, Camden Academy, and Camden Military Academy.


Through the support of our donors, we have given financial aid to families of cadets who might not have been able to attend Camden Military Academy. Our fiscal year runs from June 1st through May 31st every year. All donations received go to the scholarship fund, unless designated for specific purposes. Corporate matches are encouraged if applicable to you, the donor.

We have received support through designated gifts for:

  • Campus improvements, such as our remodeled library (inside and outside); dining hall display case, carpet, and pictures; a new look for the Carlisle House interior and exterior; new sidewalks throughout the campus
  • Scholarship funds (most recent is the Rick Belshaw Scholarship Fund)
  • The athletic program
  • New campus chapel

We welcome memorial and/or honorarium gifts for a loved one. We have special labels (see below) that can be placed in our chapel Bibles and/or hymnals with your name as the donor and the name of your loved one, for a donation of $35.00.

We encourage you to consider a monthly donation to help determine your total participation level in one of the following categories:
