"Through scholarship support of the Catamount Club, you made it possible for a young man like me to attend college, the first in my family. It was the opportunity of a lifetime – one that would lead me to a college degree and a chance at a professional football career"

This Year, It Just Means More

We are defined by what we do in times of crisis. The Catamount Nation again rose to the occasion by actively supporting our student-athletes through scholarship support, but we aren’t done yet.

 

Your previous and current support has allowed our student-athletes to be agile; to pivot and adapt during unprecedented times. They were given the opportunity to change hopelessness into hopefulness and isolation into community. We stand by our own, in good times and bad.

 

WheeAreOne Campaign

 

Providing immediate-use funds towards expenditures associated with the cost to compete, practice, and train during the 2020-21 academic year while WCU Athletics face the changes caused by the current pandemic.

 

By contributing to the ‘WheeAreOne’ Fund, you are ensuring we are maintaining previous, and current, funding investments into our programs with little to no interruption in our ability to recruit, develop, and graduate our student-athletes.
