About

Your giving provides valuable resources to every student-athlete who is a member of our intercollegiate athletic teams. Your gift today helps ensure that our student-athletes have a robust team experience. In addition, giving opportunities are available to support our strength and conditioning and sports medicine programs as well as our six new teams that will start competition in 2022-2023.

When you give to Hobart Athletics, you become a member of the Statesmen Athletic Association. When you give to William Smith Athletics, you become a member of the Heron Society.  

James F. ’56, L.H.D. ’12 and Cynthia L. Caird L.H.D. ’12 generously funded the Caird Challenge (#CAIRDCHALLENGE) again, putting $25,000 in bonus cash for Hobart and William Smith athletic teams up for grabs!

  • The top three teams with the highest percentage of dollar goal
  • The top three teams with the best video
  • The top three teams with the biggest participation comeback from last year

You will be counted once toward the dollar goal for each team you select. 

P.S. If you have any difficulty making your gift, please get in touch with Wendy Barnhart at (315) 781-3725 or barnhart@hws.edu, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thank you!

 *To ensure accuracy, offline gifts will be counted after the close of the giving day. Note that the leaderboard may vary slightly from actual numbers because of this.

The unwavering and generous support of you - our Heron and Statesmen faithful – will impact the student-athlete experience in the year ahead. Thank you! Your gift will be put to work immediately; from purchasing new equipment, team travel, enhancements to facilities, team rooms or professional development, your giving is enhancing the student-athlete experience.

Thank you again for supporting our athletic programs. You’re a game-changer!

ADOD EXTENDED

Message from Brian Miller - Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics and Recreation


In the last hour of Athletics Day of Donors, there was so much traffic to the GiveCampus site that our faithful and generous Hobart and William Smith community crashed it! As a result, we have extended the Day of Donors by 2 hours. If you haven't already made your gift there is still time! The site will now shut down at 2:30 p.m.
