Through generous support from alums, families and friends, the Davidson Athletic Fund celebrates a new fundraising high mark. This past fiscal year, more than $23.1 million was raised for scholar-athletes in support of scholarships, excellence opportunities and capital projects.

Fundraising initiatives like The Curry Family Women’s Athletics Initiative, Athletics Done Right: The Next Step and Wildcat Top 21 were met with enthusiasm, and more than 4,300 donors made gifts to Davidson’s 21 intercollegiate programs. Annual giving to athletics saw $3.2 million raised, supporting expendable scholarships and operating budgets for each team. As part of the Curry Initiative, nearly $3 million in endowed scholarships was raised, which will benefit 10 women’s programs.

“We are beyond grateful to the Davidson community for this incredible record-breaking support,” said Director of Athletics Chris Clunie ’06. “The success of our athletic programs is in large part a direct result of the support we receive. Simply put, we could not do what we do without it. We look forward to the upcoming year and cheering on our scholar-athletes as they continue to reach new levels of success in and out of competition.”

This past year, the Wildcats celebrated new program records, two conference championships, four coaches of the year and a record 322 scholar-athletes who earned the A-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll. The full 2021-2022 athletics annual report is found here.
