Investing in the Legacy of Montana Tech Athletics!
Montana Tech Athletics has chosen DayOne to announce and raise funds for the Digger Athletics Legacy Fund. Montana Technological University is committed to recruiting and developing student athletes who will perform successfully in the classroom and compete at a championship level. We’ve increased our student-athlete population by 14% in 2021 for a total of 247.
This past year our student athletes boasted a cumulative grade point average of 3.17 across 37 degree programs. Our student athletes truly walk the walk and put the “student” in student-athlete bringing home Academic All-Conference honors for the 2020-2021 seasons including:
- 45 in Football
- 9 in Volleyball
- 12 in Women's Basketball
- 3 in Men's Basketball
- 8 in Men's Golf
- 4 in Women's Golf
Your support for Digger Athletics has helped return unprecedented results in 2020-2021 including:
- First men’s Frontier Conference golf championship in school history
- Third place finish for Becca Richtman at the NAIA Cross Country National Championships
- First ever NAIA National Champion in Becca Richtman who won gold in the 3000m steeplechase at the 2021 Outdoor Track and Field National Championships
We know to be able to recruit, support and continue to excel in Montana Tech Athletics we need to raise unrestricted funds. This will allow us to provide scholarships for student athletes, purchase new equipment and provide improvements and upkeep to facilities, expand and support coaching staff salaries, promote our programs and enrich our community. In short growing our Digger Athletics Legacy Fund, helps grow Digger Athletics.
The Digger Legacy Fund will work to provide a championship level experience for all of our student-athletes. We cannot achieve this goal without you and your continued support.
During DayOne an incredible group of Digger Alumni have banded together to offer a 1:1 matching opportunity for all gifts made to the Digger Athletics Legacy Fund up to $30,000.
In addition we are launching the Digger Legacy Club for donors to the Digger Athletics Legacy Fund. Membership levels include the Pick & Hammer Society available to former Montana Tech student-athletes and coaches. Additional societies within the Digger Legacy Club include Green, Copper, Gold, All-Conference, All-American and All-Oredigger. For additional information on the Digger Legacy Club contact Montana Tech Athletic Director Matt Stepan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help us meet our $30,000 1:1 matching opportunity during DayOne with a gift to the Digger Athletics Legacy Fund and spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends!
