The fact that you are here, means the world to the success of the student-athletes of Florida A&M University, and we would like to thank you for your time and consideration. Without your help, we would not be able to provide our student-athletes with the necessities required to compete at the highest levels. In recent years, not only have they competed, they have won championships, bringing wide spread attention to our University, our region, our culture.
FAMU Athletics operates as an auxiliary enterprise of the University, relying on private donations, ticket sales, student fees and conference revenue to fund 16 varsity sports. As the costs of higher education and maintaining a successful athletic program continue to escalate, sustained private annual contributions are critical. In addition to funding annual scholarships (including tuition, fees, room and board), donations will supplement general operating costs, maintenance and upkeep of facilities, and provide budget support for individual sports.
As such, we must reach out to the masses in an effort to substantially increase philanthropic giving to the FAMU Athletics Department through the Investing in Champions Annual Giving and Lockers of Legacy Capital Campaigns. Join us TODAY by making your championship investment. Help us to preserve the rich legacy of Rattler Athletics by BUILDING CHAMPIONS: IN THE CLASSROOM, ON THE FIELD, AND IN LIFE.
