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. 

Nordic Ski Endowment Scholarship

Progress total may take up to 24 hours to update.

Share this fund:

Long-term fundraising campaign to increase athletic scholarship awarding for our Nordic Ski Team student-athletes. The Nordic Scholarship Endowment will:

 

  • Add a full athletic scholarship awarding amount to both our Women's and Men's Nordic Ski Teams.
  • Allow us to recruit the best prospective student-athletes to our team.
  • Match the athletic scholarship awarding to our competitor collegiate skiing programs.
  • Provide an opportunity for you to give directly to our student-athletes.

Allow us to achieve our program vision to be the best NCAA Nordic Skiing program in the nation!

Target fundraising goal of $50,000 by 2022 in order to establish the Nordic Scholarship Endowment. This capital will initiate the endowment and produce a payout of 4.5% annually.
