Stags Fans Set a New Fairfield Athletics #GivingTuesday Record

Friends of Fairfield Athletics raised more than $83,500 for the Athletics Director’s Fund to provide essential resources for Fairfield’s almost 500 student-athletes.

On December 1, 2020, supporters of Fairfield Athletics set a #GivingTuesday record, donating more than $83,500 to the Athletics Director’s Fund in support of the University’s close to 500 student-athletes. These funds will be directly invested to provide student-athletes with critical support to prepare them for success in their studies and their sport.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support of our Fairfield Stags community, especially as so many are experiencing challenges,” said Nick Wormley, director of Athletics Development/senior associate director of Athletics. “These funds will provide student-athletes with needed PPE, support for mental health initiatives and services, and virtual retreats to promote team bonding and cohesiveness.” 

#GivingTuesday is a philanthropic initiative that encourages individuals to use their time, talent, and treasure to better communities around the world. This year, Fairfield Athletics participated in the #GivingTuesday to raise funds for the Athletics Director’s Fund which is invested to support every aspect of the student-athlete experience. Over the last 10 years, donors have raised more than $650,000 for the Athletics Director’s Fund, and this year, Athletics set a goal to raise $65,000 on #GivingTuesday to ensure every student-athlete has a championship-caliber experience. With the support of the Fairfield community, this goal was far exceeded.

For those who would still like to take part in this season of giving by helping Fairfield student-athletes remain safe, healthy, and active as they prepare to return to competition, please visit fairfield.edu/giveathletics to make a year-end by December 31, 2020.
