Current Major Gift Needs

  • Head Coach Endowment Fund—A gift of $1 million establishes an endowment to supplement and/or cover the coach’s salary, to provide stability for the coaching position, and to enable the University to recruit and retain the very best coach.
  • Program Endowment for Equipment—Your gift of $100,000 creates a sustainable funding source of annual income that may be used to purchase new equipment and/or replace equipment that has exceeded its useful life. This annual income also could be saved over a few years to fund a major equipment investment.
