Intercollegiate Athletics

Through unrestricted support of the athletic program, the donor is providing immediately expendable funds toward areas of greatest need. Additionally, gifts can be directed toward a specific sport or team. Donors of $50 or more are eligible for membership in, and the benefits of, the Governors Club, the University's athletics booster organization.

Annual Giving Campaign for Scholarships

The Foundation also has accepted the leadership, along with the alumni board, of a special effort to enhance annual giving in support of academic scholarships. Annual giving clubs have been established to recognize the contributions of the individuals, corporations and organizations who, through their annual gifts, provide ongoing support for the continual enhancement of the University.
