Ways to support Vanderbilt Athletics today and tomorrow

Athletics General Fund (NCC)

The unrestricted, general fund for Vanderbilt Athletics, which supports Athletics administration, staff, coaches, and student-athletes to achieve excellence.

Sport-Specific Excellence Funds

Each varsity sport has its own annual (“excellence”) fund, which the teams use for investments outside of their operating budget.

Vandy United Fund

The largest undertaking of its kind in school history, the Vandy United Fund represents a bold step for Vanderbilt Athletics. A $300 million investment in student-athletes and athletics programs, the Vandy United Fund supports major facilities and operational enhancements. Gifts help support the football operations center, basketball operations center for men’s and women’s programs, McGugin Center expansion and Sports Performance Center, indoor football practice facility, and upgraded football stadium fan experience.

Athletic Scholarship Endowments

Named scholarships are endowed by some of our loyal and generous supporters. The names of our endowed scholarships and their student-athlete recipients are managed by the NCC.

2022 Senior Class Fund

Graduating seniors are asked to leave their mark on Vanderbilt University each year by making a gift to the Senior Class Fund. These gifts can be attributed to any area of campus, and as a student-athlete, we hope you will consider making a gift to Athletics to show your appreciation as a Commodore student-athlete.
