2023 Foreign Trip Fundraising

Hello Michigan Tech Women’s Basketball Supporters, 

Time for round number two! After the Dominican Republic Trip was a huge success, we want to start fundraising toward our next adventure. Tentatively scheduled in August of 2023. The impact of these cultural experiences are life long memories for our student-athletes. These trips are not possible without the continued support of our dedicated fans and alumni. We appreciate your support!

Go Huskies!!!

Annual Giving

Unrestricted operating funds for Women’s Basketball where the needs are greatest. Funding for an international trip every four years with the next trip scheduled for 2023.


New Locker Room

The Women’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball teams share a locker room, the only sports teams required do that. Space is at a premium at the end of the volleyball season and the beginning of basketball season. Creating a designated locker room for each sport will enhance recruitment and improve the student-athlete experience.

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.
