To ensure the ongoing success of all Princeton sports, the University seeks new endowment funds for varsity athletics and club sports. While annual gifts to athletics bolster year-to-year program needs, endowment funds are crucial for the program's long-term support.
A gift of $2.5 million will endow a head coaching position that, like an endowed academic chair, both funds and pays tribute to an outstanding teacher-coach. An endowment gift of $1 million will provide similar support for an assistant coaching position. A gift of $100,000 or more will establish an athletics endowment for programmatic support, which could be used for postseason, invitational, or international team travel, equipment purchases, recruiting expenses, and annual team award banquets. The donor may designate a particular sport or team as recipient of the funds.
Princeton's nationally-renowned coaches are dedicated teachers and mentors who support their students' achievements in the classroom as well as on the playing fields. In doing so, they contribute meaningfully to Princeton's holistic educational mission. The positions which have already been endowed are described here.
Programmatic endowment serves the department and individual teams well, in that it tends to be broad-based and designated to the highest program priority. Endowments begin at $100,000.00.
