Champions4Life Fund

Character, Passion, Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Leadership—These are the life-long attributes we cultivate in all Carroll University student-athletes. Since President Walter Rankin brought intercollegiate athletics to Carroll in 1894, we have long recognized the significant role sports play in the lives and development of healthy, well-rounded individuals.

Our athletic department, housed in the Van Male Field House and Natatorium, trains young men and women to participate in 23 varsity sports and many sports clubs. There is a place for every student to experience the dedication of training, the anticipation and thrill of the game, and the critical life lessons of teamwork learned on a field, court, or track.

The Champions4Life Fund supports the success of these student-athletes by providing funding for special initiatives not supported with operating dollars.

These initiatives support student-athlete success by making possible the tools and experiences they need to excel, including facility equipment and opportunities for non-regional competitive play. In short, the funds raised benefit all teams!

We invite you to join the dedicated family of alumni, parents, friends and Pioneer fans who support the Champions4Life Fund. You can choose to designate your gift to individual teams, or Pioneer athletics as a whole. Either way, your support will enable the athletics program to continue the tradition of creating champions on and off the field.
