An endowment is a permanent gift that provides Bulldog Athletics with a secure source of future revenue. Endowed funds can be made to a specific athletic scholarship or be directed toward Bulldog athletic facilities. They can also be classified as unrestricted (endowed) funds to support Bulldog Athletics. A minimum commitment of $25,000 is required to establish an endowed fund while Bulldog Club donors may also make gifts to existing endowed funds. Endowed athletic gifts may not be used toward priority seating obligations; however, Bulldog Club donors may receive priority points credit for gifts to athletic endowed funds.
