The legacy of Ashland University is creating a culture of success for each of our student-athletes as they come together and achieve great things.
But, here’s the truth: we can’t do it without your help.
Our championships are won by the hard work, talent, teamwork and values of our athletes and coaches. But lifting the weight of those trophies relies on the generosity of those who give financially to our athletic programs. For every roar of the crowd, someone’s generosity has sounded the first rising voice. For every ball sent over the fence, a gift has provided the first kinetic charge of the bat’s momentum. For each ball falling silently through the net from beyond the arc against the buzzer’s blare, a donation has set the stage for the assist that made it all happen.
Help build our lasting legacy of enriching and expanding the student-athlete experience. Be an integral part of our success!
Give To Ashland University
Athletic Annual Scholarships
Named annual scholarships provide immediate multi-year financial support for our student-athletes. Another benefit of increasing the giving to our athletic programs is that it gives our coaches and staff additional leverage when it comes to recruiting the best student-athletes. This increased ability to recruit in a highly competitive environment has a positive impact, not just in the area of athletics, but within the Ashland community as a whole.
Commitments must be four years and can be renewed for an additional four years. These gifts qualify for a fund named in recognition of the donor or honoree for the duration of the funding period. The following are examples of annual scholarships.

Locker Legacy Program
The Ashland University Locker Legacy program is designed to give student-athletes the ability to leave their legacy in the locker room of his or her sport. Generations of student-athletes have given their all for AU. They have celebrated in that locker room, they have cried in that locker room, and today, with a gift or pledge (payable over four years) of $1,000, they can continue to be a part of that. Supporters of AU Athletics may also participate in the Locker Legacy Program by making a gift in honor of one or more student-athletes.
The Varsity Walk program is designed for donors to be recognized permanently as a member of AU Athletics. The Varsity Walk is located around “Old Abe” where engraved bricks recognize those that gave their all for AU Athletics. A gift of $300 to the Varsity Walk Endowment Fund will allow you to purchase your brick or honor a loved one.
The Varsity Walk Endowment Fund was established to assist in equipment and facility enhancement within the Athletic Department. Continuing to be one of the best athletic departments in NCAA II takes a tremendous amount of effort from our student-athletes and our supporters. The principal of the Varsity Walk Endowment will never be touched and the endowment will provide steady income for generations to come.
