The University of Toledo Athletic Department continues to aim to provide all Rocket student-athletes with the tools they need for academic and competitive success. The Rocket Fund, the official annual giving program of the Athletic Department, supports scholarships, academic assistance, equipment needs and many other items for the nearly 400 UToledo student-athletes.

Rocket student-athletes compete in 16 Division I varsity sports at the University and they compete in the classroom, where they have earned a combined GPA of 3.306 during the 2019 spring semester. Always striving to continue their academic success, Rocket athletes set a school record in 2019 for department GPA for the second year in a row. It is also the sixth year in the past eight years they have won the MAC Institutional Achievement Award.

As a thank you for supporting the Rockets, the Rocket Fund allows you access to special benefits and privileges, along with the satisfaction of helping student-athletes succeed.

The Athletic Department recently implemented an athletic training table to help student-athletes perform better in the classroom, in practice, play and recovery. The training table provides fresh menu options for Rocket student-athletes to help them reach their individual, nutritional goals and needs.

Support of The Rocket Fund and Rocket Training Table during the 2019 Day of Giving will make a positive impact on Rocket athletes now and for years to come. 

Funding priorities: 

The Rocket Fund for Unrestricted Support (2032001)

For the purposes deemed most important by the athletic department.

The Rocket Fund for Scholarship (2032002)

For scholarship aid to student-athletes in all sports.

The Rocket Fund for Nutrition/Training Table (2032027)

To meet nutritional goals and needs of individual student-athletes.
