Donor support allows us to be true to the Division III philosophy of providing opportunity for all student-athletes, whether that be the opportunity for a JV player to travel to an away competition or dress for a varsity match, or the opportunity to travel out of region to play some of the toughest competition in the country, which allows us to see what we must do to be more successful. Donor support also provides higher quality technology, statistical packages, and video breakdown, which gives our student-athletes the opportunity to provide more feedback to our student-athletes to improve their skills.

Other Division III institutions have an advantage over Springfield College in athletics fundraising. Closing these gaps will allow Springfield College to provide more of the exceptional opportunities that we currently provide for student-athletes, as well as build on our national prominence as a Division III Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup Top 25 institution in a meaningful and lasting way.
A contribution to the Friends of Springfield College Athletics is an investment in Springfield College student-athletes. By helping to offset costs associated with expanded opportunities to compete at the local, regional and national Division III level, supporters can make immediate and direct impact. Gifts will help Springfield College build on its exceptional foundation for success at the Division III level, while providing greater opportunity for more student-athletes.
