Stags for Stags
Tuesday, June 23rd

Responding to the needs of our student athletes
 We hope that you and those you love are well and safe. Amid the extraordinary challenges posed by the CV19 pandemic and social unrest in our country, these remain exciting times for Fairfield Rugby as we build on tremendous progress in recent years with two nationally ranked teams. If you are fortunate enough to be in a position to support Fairfield University Rugby and our continued building of the program, we’d love to see a few scrum’s worth of support on STAGiving Day, June 4. Your donation will support essential pillars of the program that require ongoing funding including:

          • Player retention & recruiting, current scholarship commitments, and greater student-athlete financial need going forward
          • Director of Rugby role and 4 team coaches
          • Virtual coaching & training in anticipation of a return to campus and training at Walsh Athletic Center
          • Service outreach via the City of Bridgeport Rugby Alliance (COBRA), supporting at-risk Bridgeport youth. Our Jesuit tradition makes us men and women for others.

Now more than ever, let us join together as only our Fairfield Rugby community can. For the first time we are partnering with University Advancement to benefit our STAG student athletes; this includes a dedicated Rugby landing page with restricted donor accounts you select to direct your rugby donation as you see fit.

Two ways you can donate online:

Gifts of $1,000 or more to Fairfield Rugby through the University or the FOFR will be recognized for membership in The President’s Circle.
Thank you for your consideration during these challenging times.

Plans are being made for upgrades to Grauert Field.
