Support Diplomat Athletics

In an increasingly competitive world, today's Diplomats graduate exceptionally well-prepared to achieve success in whichever fields they choose. Student-athletes' experiences, whether in the pool or on the mat, field, court or track, play a large part in these preparations for future leadership. Support from alumni, parents and friends is vital to the success of these programs.

The Diplomat Athletic Club (DAC) was established by the Department of Athletics & Recreation and the Offices of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations to enhance the relationship between the College's athletic programs and its alumni and friends. DAC is also charged with increasing the level of financial support for the College's athletic programs.

When you make a gift to DAC, you can contribute to a specific sport, split your gift among several programs or give to the Athletics Excellence Fund, which supports all of F&M athletics. When you give, 100% of your gift will go to the sport(s) you select. 

DAC fosters excellence in F&M athletics by expanding opportunities for student-athletes to develop leadership skills, cultivating loyalty among student-athletes, alumni and friends and securing the financial support necessary for maintaining and enhancing the caliber of F&M's athletic programming. DAC supports student-athletes by sponsoring training trips, investing in new equipment and facilities, and creating an environment where the values of teamwork, determination and commitment to excellence continue to take precedence.
