McAndrews Fund for Athletics

Campaign Goal

The McAndrews Fund for Athletics

Red Devils are thriving, thanks to generous financial gifts to the McAndrews Fund for Athletics. The McAndrews Fund enables each of Dickinson's 25 athletics programs to recruit and develop premier student-athletes, invest in state-of-the-art facilities, travel nationally and internationally for training and community service projects, purchase essential equipment and technology, and hire and cultivate top coaches.

As individuals and teammates, Red Devils are making remarkable strides—achieving successes in the Centennial Conference, serving the campus and Carlisle community, and becoming leaders in life beyond Dickinson.

The Pugs Foundation, started in memory of Gary “Pugs” Knechtel ’80, is generously offering to match all gifts up to $25,000 to the McAndrews Fund.

Thanks To Our Recent Donors!


The McAndrews Fund for Athletics—with gifts from alumni, parents and friends of the college—helps our student-athletes excel in their sport and in the classroom. When you make a gift to the McAndrews Fund, you give today's Red Devils opportunities that would not be available without your support.

Donations are applied to...

As we have navigated a challenging year that was reliant on our Red Devil Athletics Department coming together, we want to lift our unrestricted McAndrews Fund which supports all of our student-athletes, all year around. Below are just a few examples of what our unrestricted McAndrews gifts go towards.

Your donations to the unrestricted McAndrews Fund support:

  1. Volt Athletics  -  All Sports Performance Package that our athletes utilize for their strength and conditioning work
  2. Strength and conditioning certification (yearly) for our staff, which enables them to be in the weight room with the athletes
  3. Support the purchase of team uniforms
  4. Personal and team growth presentations to our department and student-athlete such as "Jen Fry – How to Create a Culture of Inclusive Excellence" and " Gary Steele – Leadership "
  5. Vital training equipment for our student-athlete’s rehab and injury prevention
  6. Team training and subsidizing international trips that provide our athletes with an incredibly unique and impactful training and team bonding experience
  7. Timing services for our annual Run for Steph event that raises awareness to the hazards of drunk driving
  8. Nutritious meals for our teams when they are on the road.

Why are donations necessary?

Gifts to the McAndrews Fund for Athletics support the intercollegiate experiences of current Dickinson student-athletes by enhancing opportunities for instruction and competition, creating increased opportunities for student recruitment and visibility locally and nationally, enabling teams to travel for training, funding essential equipment and software, helping the college hire top coaches and much more.
