The USAFA Parents' Association of Los Angeles County (UPALAC) is composed of over 60 families, while our cadets number 110.

We try to support our cadets and families in numerous ways throughout the year. Donate here to help with those efforts!

The Dennis P. Rando Cadet Humanitarian Fund
The Rando Fund is named in honor of C1C Dennis P. Rando, one of several cadets in the 1990s who perished before graduating. When an honor guard of his classmates had to pay travel expenses to his memorial service from their own pockets, a group of Massachusetts parents founded the Rando Fund. Since 1997 the Rando Fund has raised private support to provide the means for cadets travel to represent the Academy at services of their fallen colleagues. In 2012 the USAFA Endowment assumed the collection and management of such gifts, with no change to the Rando Fund mission. 100 percent of donations made to this account support the Rando Fund.
