Football Giving Priorities

Sherman Field at Kearly Stadium

Michigan Technological University Football Seating and Press Box Campaign

We are thrilled to announce the naming of our renovated football facility in honor of the Kearlys—both Ted and Tom—who have been instrumental in the success of our program for decades. Their legacy and love for Michigan Tech will live on at Kearly Stadium. With their hard work and leadership—and that of many others—Michigan Tech football is an established program with a bright future. Two NCAA playoff appearances. Two Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles. Thirteen NCAA All-American players. Attendance at Husky football games is increasing and the football program is growing. Thank you to all who have supported the football program and our campaign to improve our facilities. We have completed phase one of our stadium project. Our goal is to continue to enhance the Husky football game-day experience. Your continued support is needed to make Sherman Field at Kearly Stadium the finest NCAA Division II facility in the nation. The University and Athletics Department are deeply committed to completing these comprehensive improvements to this historic facility. We hope that the hundreds of Tech alumni who had memorable experiences playing football at Tech will share that enthusiasm.

Join us in this next phase to create an exceptional game-day atmosphere, giving our Huskies a true home-field advantage. With continued support from the University and backing from our loyal alumni and friends, we will  complete this important campaign.

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 $500,000 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.
