NDSU Athletics provides a common connection for students, alumni and friends, and donors — Bison Pride resonates at games and competitions throughout the year. A Giving Day gift to NDSU Athletics provides invaluable support for all NDSU student-athletes in the classroom, in competition, and in the community. Make a gift to support the student-athlete experience. Go Bison!

Your gift on Giving Day will fund:

  • Bison Athletic Excellence Funds — provides support to your individual program of choice and plays an instrumental role in the continued success of the program
  • Team Makers — provides scholarships and program support for student-athletes in all 16 sports at NDSU
    - Become an annual Team Makers member with a gift of $100 or more and receive exclusive benefits based on giving level

All gifts are eligible for priority points! Your gift to Team Makers and Bison Athletic Excellence Funds receives one (1) point per $50. Priority points recognize continuous loyalty and philanthropic support. Priority points are used to determine priority in the allocation of new or improved seating, assignment of single-game tickets, reserved parking, reserved tailgating, and football playoff and basketball tournament ticket disbursement.
