Through participation in the Villanova Athletic Fund (VAF), alumni, parents and friends—our passionate Wildcat fans—can be part of the tradition of excellence and support all Villanova Athletics programs. The Villanova Athletic Fund directly benefits our exceptional student-athletes and dedicated coaches, and provides players the full Villanova experience, in competition, in the classroom and in the community. The fundraising efforts for Villanova Athletics are an integral part of the University Advancement program and the University's overall fundraising efforts to support the Villanova Strategic Plan.
