Lions' Athletic Fund

The Lions Athletic Fund offers fans and supporters the opportunity to give back and become involved in the growing tradition of Saint Leo University Athletics.   Serving as the annual charitable giving program for the athletic department, the Lions Athletic Fund provides a platform to raise financial support to ensure our coaches and student-athletes have everything they need to pursue excellence in academics and develop championship athletic programs.  

The Lions Athletic Fund will provide a stronger brand identity to unify our athletic fundraising efforts and raise broader awareness for how your financial contributions support the overall student-athlete experience.  Hospitality events and membership benefits you have come to know through the Green & Gold Club will still be available when you contribute to the Lions Athletic Fund so you can continue to share your Lions Pride throughout the year.   

Our department boasts over 325 student-athletes and 17 NCAA Division II teams.  All of our teams compete in the nationally known and highly recognized Sunshine State Conference with the exception of lacrosse.   Our success is not only prevalent in athletic competition, but in the classrooms as well as we continue to produce Academic All-Americans, Sunshine State Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll representatives and an increased number in annual President’s Club honorees.     

Financial contributions to the Lions Athletic Fund assist in offering support for scholarships, endowment funding, capital projects, recruiting, equipment, travel and other immediate needs prioritized by the athletic department.   Each contribution to the Lions Athletic Fund is extremely valuable to helping our student-athletes compete at the highest level and promote an educational environment that will produce tomorrow’s leaders.  Show your pride and make your annual gift to the Lions Athletic Fund today and help Saint Leo continue on its mission to be “a leading Catholic teaching university of international consequence for the twenty-first century.”  

Gifts to the Lions Athletic Fund are tax-deductible, and can be made in a variety of ways.  Please visit our Methods of Giving page to learn more how you can donate or Give Online today.  90% of your gift made to the Lions Athletic Fund will go directly to the specific program and 10 percent of all monetary donations made will go to the Saint Leo University General Athletics' Fund.  Many employers will match contributions their employees make to educational organizations.  Matching gifts may double the value of your Lions Athletic Fund contribution.Thank you for your support of Lions Athletics.
