Being a part of the Springfield College family and the football program has been an honor. It’s not only made me a better student and athlete, but a better person as well. Filling out the Springfield College application and putting on a Pride helmet are the two best decisions I’ve made in my entire life.

Can you make a gift to a specific team?
Yes. Gifts to specific teams are welcomed. These gifts will be used to fund the highest priority for the team, as identified by the coach and director of athletics. Twenty percent of each gift to a specific team will be designated as general athletics support.
Why does part of your gift to a specific team become general athletics support?
No single team competes in a vacuum.
Fields, medical and sports communication start, graduate assistants, training facilities, and more are shared by teams. Directing 20 percent to general athletics support from each gift made to a specific team allows enhancement of the total student-athlete experience.
Whether used for a new scoreboard at Stagg Field for football, field hockey and men’s and women’s lacrosse; to help a team with international travel; or expand athletic training hours; general athletics support allows the director of athletics to provide resources where they are needed most and will have the largest impact.
