Ever Brighter: The Campaign for Our Next Century
The University of Miami has launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign ever, a $2.5 billion initiative that is accelerating the U’s drive to shape a brighter future.
As part of this campaign, University of Miami Athletics has an overall campaign goal of raising $225 million by 2025 which will directly impact our 400+ student-athletes. Funds raised through the Ever Brighter campaign will equip Miami Athletics with the resources necessary to compete at the highest level. These gifts will set the foundation for the future of Miami Athletics. Supporters can participate in this campaign through a variety of giving priorities outlined below.
WAYS TO SUPPORT
Student Impact Annual Fund
Each and every day, our student-athletes give their all in the classroom, weight room, in practice and on the field, proudly representing the University of Miami, alumni, friends and fans like you. In order to accomplish their goals, your support is critical to help our student-athletes receive the very best in medical care, nutritional programs, academic services, first-class facilities, and scholarship support. Support Miami student-athletes through a Student Impact Fund annual gift.
Athletic Director's Society
Founded in 2021, the Athletic Director’s Society is the premier major giving society for Miami Athletics. Members of this society are dedicated to the success of Miami Athletics through their philanthropic gifts. Funds raised through this society are imperative to Miami Athletics and as a result, donors are stewarded with exclusive engagement opportunities with the key stakeholders of the University of Miami and Miami Athletics.
Endowed Scholarships/Coaching Chairs
Increasing endowed scholarship support opens doors to the lifelong benefits of higher education to students from all walks of life and secures the future of University of Miami athletics. Providing our student-athletes with financial support in the form of athletic scholarships is a permanent investment in their boundless potential. Endowed chairs in the director of athletics position, as well as football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, and Olympic sports head-coaching positions, will provide permanent support for these leadership positions.
State-of-the-art athletic facilities and amenities play a key role in successful recruiting; help our student-athletes, coaches, and staff achieve peak performance; and elevate the fan experience at competitions. To that end, our campaign will seek to launch an ambitious expansion of our athletics programs and facilities. To sustain the Miami Hurricanes’ record of excellence, we plan to renovate and upgrade our baseball stadium, our basketball facilities, and the football program’s Coral Gables base. We also aim to expand and renovate our Olympic sports facilities and reconfigure our athletic training spaces.
Golden Canes Society
The Golden Canes Society is the leadership annual giving society of Miami Athletics. Golden Canes Society members are given access to exclusive gameday experiences. All gifts to the Golden Canes Society go directly towards supporting the 400+ Student-Athletes at Miami in the form of leadership development, nutrition programs, comprehensive well-being services, academic resources, and scholarship support.
Building Women Champions
Support UM female student-athletes to create winners and future leaders. Playing sports increases confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills. Women who play sports have a more positive self-image—allowing them to rise in their games, careers, and communities. At the University of Miami, we help develop women student-athletes into leaders in competition and in life, believing that providing athletic and leadership opportunities will empower women to achieve excellence well beyond their time at UM.
Planned Giving helps you meet your personal, financial and estate planning goals by making a lifetime or testamentary charitable gift. A planned gift is one of the easiest charitable gifts to make.
