Endowed Fund for ​Rider ​Athletics

Endowed Fund for ​Rider ​Athletics

The Endowed Fund for Rider Athletics has been established to maintain and enhance the level of athletic and academic success for our 20 men’s and women’s NCAA Division I programs. To fully realize our goal we must generate funds from private sources that will provide steady and predictable income in support of our student-athletes.

Gifts to The Endowed Fund for Rider Athletics will enable our student-athletes to compete at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics by helping to supplement scholarships, enhance academic support services, improve athletics facilities, update team equipment, enhance team and recruiting travel opportunities and upgrade how we recognize the rich history of Rider Athletics. All members of the Rider community may contribute to the growth of the fund by making gifts of any size. Your generous donation to The Endowed Fund for Rider Athletics will demonstrate your commitment to a strong athletics program at Rider University.
