About Us

The MMAPO is a non-profit organization [501(c)(3)], created for the purpose of supporting the MMA Corps of Cadets to further enhance their experiences (separate from their military and academic responsibilities) while at The Marine Military Academy.  Our core mission is to fundraise in order to provide the extra-curricular activities, special events and “comfort items” to our hard-working and deserving Cadets.  We do this entirely with the generous help and support of parent volunteers and an elected MMAPO Board of four parent volunteers.  100% of the funds raised, benefit the Cadets directly. 

We accomplish these goals several ways.

  1. From the support of our amazing MMA parents and extended families.

  2. Through yearly membership dues.

  3. Through various fundraising efforts including sales of merchandise, raffles and special events throughout the year.

  4. Online donations.

The funds raised by the MMAPO are used various ways throughout the year. 

  • To supplement each Companies barracks with items such us new pillows, new pic-nic tables and BBQ’s, new paint-ball equipment, new CAC games (including ping-ping table, foosball table, pop-a-shot game, commercial popcorn machine), new video game consoles for each Company… just to name a few.

  • For Spring Fling Family Weekend – Our biggest fundraiser and family get-together of the year!

  • To supplement Company Funds when needed for year-end trips.

  • And much, much more.

Our goal is to have every family of every Cadet become a member of the MMAPO!  Join now and consider volunteering at one of our upcoming events.  Feel free to contact a Board Member if you have any questions about The MMAPO or MMA.  Thank You!
