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:

Fundraising for the Nordic Ski Endowment Scholarship began in 1994 with the goal of providing athletic scholarship opportunities to Nordic Ski Team student-athletes. Since its inception, this fund has been giving back to our Nordic student-athletes through athletic scholarships. Over the past 25 years, this fund has grown through continued generous contributions, and the net investment revenue has generated at an average annual payout of 4.5%. 

Now it's time to grow this endowment to meet our $50,000 goal that will allow us to award an additional and apportionable full scholarship amount annually to both our Women's and Men's Nordic Ski Teams! This is your opportunity to donate in a way that gives directly to our student-athletes, helping to offset their cost of attendance and creating the opportunity for them to be able to join our Michigan Tech Nordic Huskies! For our program, reaching our endowment goal will allow us to continue to recruit the very best prospective student-athletes to join our team, and we truly believe this will allow us to achieve our vision to be the best NCAA Nordic Ski program!

Let's achieve our fundraising goal of $50,000 by 2023! If you are able to give to our Michigan Tech Nordic Huskies, please give to this Nordic Ski Endowment Scholarship!
