What we enjoy now at the University of Montana is based on the generosity of thousands and thousands of devoted supporters. For us to be able to sustain what we do, we rely one hundred percent on philanthropy.

Make no small plans. Donate

summer school support

Student-athletes in all sports are spending more time on campus during the summer months. Being in Missoula over the summer provides students with a competitive advantage through summer classes and access to training facilities. Your gift helps us support students’ opportunity to be on campus during the summer.

Sport-Specific Support

Impact Funds offer coaching staff the resources to recruit, teach, train and mentor our Grizzlies. Your gift helps us expand our recruiting, ensure student-athletes have the latest equipment and provide unique opportunities for Grizzly student-athletes to succeed academically, athletically and socially.

Facility Improvements

During Campaign Montana, we have dramatically improved the facilities in which our student-athletes train and study. These improvements include the Eric and Blair Sprunk Student-Athlete Academic Center, the Washington-Grizzly Champions Center, the Bill Ruegamer Indoor Golf Facility, the Grizzly softball field, and a complete resurfacing of both the Grizzly soccer field and Dahlberg Arena basketball floor. With the completion of the Champions Center, we are now positioned to renovate the spaces that were vacated in the move to the Center. With donor support, we will create a Montana Basketball Center, new equipment center, and new locker rooms and meeting spaces for the Lady Griz basketball and volleyball teams. Your gift helps ensure our student-athletes are prepared to succeed.

Grizzly Scholarship Association

Founded in 1955 as the Century Club, the goals and primary mission of the GSA today are the same as they were then: to raise athletic scholarship dollars to pay the educational costs of UM student-athletes. Your contributions pay approximately $1.5 million of the $5.4 million dollars expended annually on athletic scholarships for more than 300 student-athletes participating in 15 NCAA Division I sports at UM.

scholarships

Student-athlete scholarships are at the core of our mission and success. Scholarships attract top recruits and allow them to compete at the highest level. They also allow these students to receive a high-quality college education at reduced or no tuition.

During the silent phase of Campaign Montana, donors helped the Grizzly Athletic program take a big step up. With your support, we built a beautiful new field for women’s softball, and opened both the Eric and Blair Sprunk Student-Athlete Academic Center and the Washington Grizzly Champions Center. Facility improvement remains a priority, as we look to renovate the Adams Center, but we also continue to ask for your support for student-athlete scholarships and the individual sports teams you are passionate about.
