Pay it forward in honor of the next 50 years of Rugby at Ohio University!

OHIO Rugby needs your support

Wearing Green and White is much more than just pulling on a jersey. Every student who does so becomes part of the fabric of the University's history. The Impact of playing rugby transcends the white lines of the pitch. It fosters attributes such as resilience, teamwork, empathy, and communication and provides unforgettable experiences on and off the pitch. 

Cutting to the chase: Our aspiration is that Ohio University becomes considered one of the best institutions for rugby in the state of Ohio and beyond; more students are encouraged to enjoy the game while in Athens and continue to rise in the rankings. 

You can be part of the solution by making a gift to the Ohio University Rugby fund*.

This fund can provide for a better and well-rounded athletic experience by:

  • Giving athletes access to recording equipment (allowing for playback of game-time footage)
  • Helping to offset teams' and players' travel expenses
  • Allowing teams to participate in scrimmages and tournaments, like Nash Bash

The bonds established through OHIO Rugby are forged in competition to remain for a lifetime, and we know your association with OURFC is a proud one. So please consider giving today: Your gift will support the next 50 years of Rugby at Ohio University! Thank you!



Your gift to this campaign will immediately support OHIO Rugby teams and players.

Here are five things alums, students, families, and friends can do to support a bright future for rugby teams at Ohio University:

  • Make a gift to support this Support OHIO Rugby crowdfunding campaign.
  • Set up a monthly contribution to the Ohio University Rugby fund using the Give to Ohio University donation form.
  • Mail a check (payable to The Ohio University Foundation) to The Ohio University Foundation, PO Box 869, Athens, OH 45701 — be sure to write "OU Rugby Fund-Sp" of the rugby fund on the memo line.
  • If you want to explore making a charitable gift to this campaign with a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), giving via a Donor Advised Fund or stock transfer, please reach out to Nick Belt.
