Annual Giving  

Villanova Athletics and the Football program seek to augment the funds it uses to attract and support student-athletes of the highest caliber with annual use contributions. To propel the Football program to new levels of recognition and competition, your gift can be pledged towards one of the following areas:

  • Programmatic support–of any amount–provides annual financial assistance for critical operating expenses, including recruiting, team travel and more.
  • Scholarship support–of any amount–provides annual financial assistance for scholarship funding and academic support resources for Villanova Football student-athletes.

Multi-year commitments to these areas can be made to the Villanova Football program.
