Back the ’Cats - September 25–27

Help your favorite team win the Back the ’Cats Cup this year! Join our Wildcat student-athletes September 25–27, for the third annual Back the ’Cats fundraising competition.

It’s true, we’re a Wildcat Family, but we’re also fierce competitors! Our teams are vying to see who can bring in the most donors and win the Back the ’Cats Cup. Support your favorite team (or teams) with a gift of any amount to help them climb the leaderboard. Bragging rights are on the line!

Supporting Student-Athletes

Your gift to the team (or teams) of your choice will go a long way to supporting a comprehensive—and fantastic—student-athlete experience. 

In addition to supporting teams directly, you can give to support Wildcat Athletics Scholarships to increase access and our ability to recruit the best and brightest, or our Student-Athlete Success Fund, which funds programs such as the award-winning ’CatsSkills initiative (student-athlete centered programming focused on leadership development, personal development, professional development, and community engagement), our state-of-the-art strength and conditioning center, and our highly regarded and growing athletic training staff.

Select either fund (or both!) at checkout to maximize your impact.
