Why we need your support
As a self-supporting auxiliary to the University, the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics does not receive State funding or financial support from the University.
The cost of competing at the highest level and providing a quality education for our more than 500 outstanding student-athletes continues to climb. Private support enables us to recruit and train elite student-athletes in quality facilities, fund scholarships and compete with peer institutions.
Financial stability ultimately breeds success, and success breeds pride among WVU’s many alumni and friends.
How you can help
Funds generated by the Mountaineer Athletic Club (MAC) are our primary resource for meeting critical needs. On the Day of Giving, your gifts to these MAC funds will help maintain our position as one of the nation’s premier programs.
