Become a member of the L Club

Joining the L Club is the primary way to make an annual gift to support UWL Intercollegiate Athletics.

Become a Diamond Eagle, Platinum Eagle,
Golden Eagle, or Bronze Eagle today and help ensure the continued excellence of our
student athletes.  

Gifts can be designated to the general athletic fund, a specific sport, or a combination that is meaningful to you as a donor through the
UWL Foundation. 

Your annual gift will primarily be utilized to support margins of excellence in the following areas:

Recruiting

Recruitment of exceptional student-athletes is critical to the success of our programs. The majority of dollars earmarked for recruitment is a result of  honor gifts. Our outstanding academic programs, nationally competitive athletic teams, and beautiful campus community allow us to affectively compete against other institutions. Support of recruitment initiatives ensures opportunities to share proudly the UWL experience with student- athletes in their schools and homes.

Excellence in coaching and performance

Our coaches are the team of professionals that deliver a first-rate experience for student athletes. Coaching staff quality and consistency is vital to our success. Dedicated coaches impact student-athlete’s lives in profound ways. Your investment provides the resources needed for coaches to stay on the cutting edge of techniques and training in regard to athletic performance and student-athlete wellness.

Equipment

Purchasing much-needed capital equipment items is challenging for teams given their annual operating budgets. The equipment fund is a tangible way to support our program. Examples of investments include a gymnastics vault table, a pole vault pit for track and field, a blocking sled for football, or a hitting machine for tennis.
