The Friends of Springfield College Athletics comprise a group of alumni, parents, friends, and businesses who are committed to supporting the Pride. There are more than 8,000 former athletic participants at Springfield College who, during their playing days, helped enrich our great athletic tradition.
Today, the Friends of Springfield College Athletics serve solely to enhance athletics at Springfield College. Members of the Friends of Springfield College Athletics attend home and away games, assist coaches in identifying potential recruits, assist in providing fieldwork/internship sites for our students, and attend receptions following select contests.
We strive to provide the best in competitive and academic opportunities, support services, and athletic facilities for our student-athletes. By providing funding to meet rising costs, former student-athletes, loyal alumni, parents and friends are able to connect on a very personal level with the student-athletes and teams. No two donors have identical reasons for giving to the Friends of Springfield College Athletics.
However, some of the more common reasons include:
Keeping Springfield College Athletics strong and competitive to continue our tradition of excellence;
Giving back to an institution that provided a terrific college experience;
Because it’s fun! The social benefits of belonging to and supporting the Friends of Springfield College Athletics include connecting with old, and meeting new, friends at events and gatherings, and extending a network of successful business contacts and associates.
As the College celebrates 50 Years of Women’s Varsity Athletics at Springfield College— predating Title IX—we are thrilled about the opportunity to expand our support base and allow our donors and fans to experience Springfield College Athletics in a new way.
The growth of the Friends of Springfield College Athletics will allow you to make a difference as we develop young leaders through athletics at Springfield College.
