About the Command and

General Staff College Foundation

The Command and General Staff College Foundation, Inc., (CGSCF) is a 501 (C)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit educational foundation that provides resources and support to the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC) in the development of tomorrow’s military leaders. The CGSCF helps to advance the profession of military art and science by promoting the development of military leaders of character and competence for service to the nation.

Our Vision

The CGSC Foundation’s vision is to become a supporting organization that is widely recognized as the national leader in membership, programs, innovation, and support to the US Army Command and General Staff College to advance its core mission of educating leaders for the challenges of the 21st century.

Our Mission

CGSC Foundation support for the College is in three general areas: Scholarship, Outreach, and Soldier & Family Support. Foundation programs are intended to enhance the academic experience for the students, enrich the lives of their families, and help connect Americans with the College and their military.

Specifically, the mission of the CGSC Foundation is to:

• Enrich the College’s academic environment

• Foster a strong relationship between the military and the private sector

• Enhance the institution’s research activities

• Promote leader development

• Encourage excellence in the faculty and student body

• Maintain contact with alumni

The Foundation supports the College’s many areas of focus by providing financial and research support for symposia, conferences, and lectures, as well as funding and organizing community outreach activities that help connect the American public to their Army. Foundation programs range from sponsorship of awards for excellence in the student and faculty, to large programs such as the Col. Arthur D. Simons Center for Interagency Cooperation. Overall, the CGSC Foundation has provided $5.9 million in support to the College over its first 10 years.

The CGSC Foundation is funded through private donations and its board of trustees is staffed with distinguished retired military leaders, business executives, community leaders and others who are focused on providing the margin of excellence to the educational programs of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
