Since March of 2020, Centenary, like many other collegiate athletic programs, have experienced financial challenges as a direct result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite those obstacles, we continue to provide our student-athletes with a quality and formative college athletics experience. From restricted schedules and limited fan attendance, to countless tests and quarantines, our student-athletes have remained resilient, resourceful and successful.
To help address the need for additional resources, the Department of Athletics and the Development Division at Centenary have teamed up this spring for MARCH MANIA to help support the College’s nineteen athletics programs and the school’s 303 student-athletes by identifying specific needs for each team. Donors can support a specific sport, split their gift among several programs, or give directly to the Athletics Department. When you give during March Mania, 100 percent of your donation will go to the sport(s) of your choosing and will support the special project needed for that sport.
“Centenary remains committed to fostering excellence in athletics through expanding opportunities for student-athletes to develop leadership skills, cultivating loyalty among student-athletes, alumni and friends, and securing the financial support necessary for maintaining and enhancing the caliber of Centenary’s athletic programming,” said David Orr, Director of Athletics.
Athletics plays an important role in the life of the College and the broader community. A list of the special projects will be available closer to the launch of the campaign in March.
