Featured Speakers

Mike Hoffman

Mike joined the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation in 2013 and currently serves on the Foundation’s senior leadership team as the Vice President, Development. Mike began his tenure at Navy as a Major Gifts Officer and grew into a series of roles with increasing responsibility before taking the VP position in 2022.

As the Naval Academy Foundation builds out a team in anticipation of their next campaign, Mike will lead a staff of 18 on the Development team, which includes the Regional Development Team, which is comprised of the organization’s major gifts and high-end leadership annual giving initiatives, the Planned Giving Team, as well as the Prospect Development and Research Team. In his role, he also works closely with the Foundation’s EVP, Board of Directors and other organizational leaders to play a central role in campaign planning and execution. Additionally, Mike manages a national portfolio of top principal gift prospects and donors.

Since 2004, Mike has worked in education at both the independent school and higher education levels, with most of that experience in development positions. Prior to joining the Foundation, Mike was at Johns Hopkins University in their Regional and International Programs development office.
