Make some noise for Sagehen Athletics Giving Day!

As we come together to celebrate Sagehen Athletics, Pomona and Pitzer are showing their dedication to our athletics community. We ask you to join this effort with a gift to the Sagehen Athletics program or any one of our 21 varsity teams. Your gift will have a profound effect on our scholar-athletes and coaches because it gives them the necessary tools to strive towards fostering a culture of excellence in the dynamic world of NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletics.

    🏐 Team travel 
    🏊 Recruitment 
    🎾 Improved athletic facilities, technology and equipment 
    🏀 Uniforms 
    ⛳ Camps and clinics
    ⚽ Coaching support 

Your gift will also help us continue our mission to create a community that thrives through physical and intellectual growth. By donating today, you will be investing in the success and well-being of our student-athletes, providing them with the tools they need to compete and succeed at the highest levels of competition.

The College also gladly accepts gifts of securities, corporate matching gifts, gifts from donor-advised funds, and IRA-qualified charitable distributions (QCDs). Learn more about ways to give.

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and support. Your donation will have a lasting impact on the lives of the students and the Sagehen Athletics program.

Go Sagehens!

4/6 is meant to honor and celebrate scholar athletes who give so much of their time talent, passion and spirit to represent our community with integrity and excellence; and your support is both an investment and endorsement of their hard work and accomplishments. Everyone in the Sagehen Athletics organization is so grateful for everyone’s participation—from our challenge donors who inspired others to join them, to the many advocates spreading the word online and matching commitments from their networks, and special thanks to all who helped make 4/6 possible—our staff, faculty, coaches and student-athletes.

This year, we were the top ranked SCIAC School in the Directors Cup. Last fall, football celebrated its first-ever SCIAC Championship and volleyball advanced to the SCIAC Tournament Championship for the first time. In basketball, Madison Quan broke three program records becoming the first Sagehen to earn SCIAC Player of the Year honors in program history. This is excellence. This is thriving. This is Sagehen Athletics and YOU are our Champions. These honors start with opportunity, access and resources that YOU, our Champions, help provide year after year. Thank you for being a Champion for Sagehen Athletics! Chirp, Chirp!
