Behrend Lions Athletic Association

Join The Team!

Athletics is an important part of the exciting progress taking place at Penn State Behrend. With your help, we can continue the type of growth that, in the past decades alone, has brought ten new varsity sports, nine different club sports, and dozens of new intramural activities. Growth that offers opportunities for all students - whether competing, getting fit, or just having fun.

Put Your Mark on Athletics

Philanthropy can make a difference in everything from facilities to specialized equipment, sports medicine services to tutoring opportunities. Just as there are many ways for students to participate in athletics, there are many ways to give:

Unrestricted Gifts
Unrestricted gifts are directed to areas where the need is most pressing or the greatest opportunity exists.

Restricted Gifts
Donors may choose to restrict their gift to a particular sport or program.

Funding an athletic endowment will create a permanent benefit. Existing endowments include the James A. Frye Endowment for Athletics, Roger Sweeting Endowment for Athletics, Warren Behrend Athletic Fund and Herbert J. Lauffer Memorial Soccer Tournament Endowment. An athletic endowment is invested so that a portion of the net investment income is used to support the team activity the donor designated.

Behrend Lions Athletic Association
An annual membership in the Behrend Lions Athletic Association helps defray operating costs for varsity sports. Members receive a quarterly newsletter and are invited to an annual event to recognize student athletes.

Thank you for your support!
