@AU_Lacrosse Announces $75,000 Matching Gift Challenge

The AU lacrosse team lines up for the National Anthem before they face Central Michigan

An anonymous American University women's lacrosse benefactor is asking all alumni, parents and friends of the program to join the $75,000 Matching Gift Challenge.

All gifts made this fiscal year (May 1, 2018 thru April 30, 2019) are worth twice as much, as the anonymous benefactor is matching EVERY gift for AU women's lacrosse up to $75,000.

"We are tremendously grateful to our lead donor for this campaign," said Dr. Billy Walker, AU's Director of Athletics and Recreation. "This challenge will absolutely enhance the quality of our women's lacrosse players' student-athlete experience, and continue to make us more competitive in a tough Patriot League."

All donations will be applied toward the Women's Lacrosse Excellence Fund, which provides head coach Jenna Petrucelli the resources she needs to provide her student-athletes with world-class experiences, academic support and elite training.
