Support and Impact
A contribution to the AMCAT Fund is an investment in the betterment of all Anna Maria College student-athletes. By helping to offset any number of costs associated with expanded opportunities to compete at the local, regional, and national Division III level, your gift makes an immediate and direct impact. Your gift will help to build on the already exceptional foundation for success at the Division III level that Anna Maria is recognized for, while providing funds for student-athletes above and beyond what Anna Maria College already provides, including expanded opportunities for participation, enhanced out-of-region travel, national recruiting, and championship competition.. Every gift to the AMCAT Fund makes a difference to the more than 300 student-athletes who compete in 13 varsity sports, while invigorating our campus community and positioning Anna Maria as a competitive institution in the region.

Support a Specific Team
Gifts to specific teams are welcomed. These gifts will be used to fund the highest priority for the team, as identified by the coach and director of athletics. Twenty percent of each gift to a specific team will be designated as general athletics support. No single team competes in a vacuum; fields, medical and sports information staff, graduate assistants, training facilities, and more are shared by teams. Directing 20 percent to general athletics support from each gift made to a specific team allows enhancement of the total student-athlete experience.
