Go #AllinforDominican by supporting Athletics!

Gifts will support initiatives like:

  • Scholarships to support current players and help recruit top players from around the world
  • Meals and housing costs related to NCAA conference tournaments
  • New uniforms to accommodate growing rosters
  • Film equipment to support performance analysis 
  • Additional assistant coaching staff for niche training regimens
  • Batting cage upgrades to the Penguin Field at the John F. Allen Athletics Complex
  • Recreational Sports' eSports and outdoor excursion programming

With more than 200 student-athletes representing 11 varsity sports that compete in the Pacific West Conference and Men’s Lacrosse in the MCLA, Dominican Athletics has pivoted off the court, field, and course this year to keep students safe. 

In these challenging times, our top priority is ensuring that student-athletes have the resources to complete their education at Dominican.

Simultaneously, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in costly new protocols for safely staging practices, training, and competition.

Your participation, in combination with others, makes a big impact! 

Whether made directly to a team of your choosing or the Recreational Sports program, your gift will have a direct impact on students’ experiences as collegiate-level athletes and high-achieving scholars.

You Have An Incoming Message of Gratitude!

Despite the circumstances, Penguins continue to stand united.  We came together to support scholarships, schools, and programs to create new experiences and opportunities for Dominican students. 

We set a record this year!  More than 800 donors made gifts totaling $189,204.  Together, we unlocked the challenge and matching gifts.  This outpouring of generosity makes a tremendous impact by providing the means necessary for our amazing, dynamic students to thrive on campus and beyond. 

To all who gave, thank you for your kindness and generosity.  Please watch the video above for our heartfelt words of gratitude from us to you.

We did it, Pengs! But the day isn’t over yet… while we are thrilled to have reached the goal, we know that there is still more to be done to support students. If you haven't had a chance to donate, there is still time to make an impact. Thank you to everyone who has gone All In so far.
