About

29 Sports. One Team.

October 5 (9 a.m.) - October 6 (Noon)

550 Student-Athletes. 29 Sports. One Team. Vassar student-athletes are passionate, driven, and unified in their pursuit of excellence in competition, in the classroom, and in the community. Your support of Vassar Athletics is essential to our ability to provide our student-athletes with the tools they need to not just pursue excellence, but to attain it. During the Vassar Athletics Day of Giving, we will have 27 hours to reach our goal of 2,100 gifts in support of Vassar Athletics.

In memory of Linda Morgan ’73, former Vassar Women’s Basketball player and champion of Vassar Athletics, her spouse, Michael Karam, will generously make a gift of $25,000 to support Brewer Athletics and the Brewers Fund. Each team will receive $1,000 when they achieve their donor goal. In addition, Vassar President Elizabeth Bradley is once again demonstrating her support of the College’s student-athletes with a gift of $10,000, to be distributed to the Brewers Fund, once we hit our goal of 2,100 overall donors.

Thank you for your support of Vassar Athletics and our student-athletes!
