About


Challenge met and $190,000 unlocked for the Colgate Athletics Fund!







Join the Mania

When the Colgate community raises $613,000 across all Colgate athletics designations, it will unlock a $190,000 gift to the Colgate Athletics Fund thanks to a generous group of donors.

Join the Mania: Make a gift to the Colgate Athletics Fund or to the varsity program of your choice by March 13.

  • All gifts to Colgate athletics designations will help us reach our goal to unlock a $190,000 gift for the Colgate Athletics Fund.
  • Donors who are alumni of varisty programs will be tallied to help their teams compete in their March Mania bracket. Teams with the highest number of their alumni participating in March Mania will earn an additional $5,000. New this year: the non-winning team in each bracket that has most improved participation over 2022 tallies will also earn a $1,300 award for their program.


Thank you for your support

And thank you to the generous group of donors that have made this year's Colgate Athletics Fund challenge possible.
