Maverick Athletics

Support maverick athletics

The One Fund serves as the department’s annual fund, which provides programmatic support for all 15 varsity sports. Unrestricted and sport-specific gifts made to the annual fund provide the opportunity to meet immediate funding needs that include expenses associated with student-athlete scholarships and development, facilities, travel, equipment and other team-related costs. Annual fund gifts provide a valuable foundation of support that will ensure our department will rise to meet all challenges.

We encourage Maverick supporters to donate annually to The One Fund.
