Athletics

Muhlenberg recognizes athletics as a powerful educational tool as well as a source of considerable institutional pride. Our current student-athletes are part of a long tradition of academic excellence and competitive athletics. Like those before them they will leave the College with qualities that last a lifetime, qualities that build strength and character and prepare them for lives of leadership and service.

The Cardinal & Grey Fund was established in 1989 to afford alumni, parents, and friends an opportunity to support the College’s athletic effort and continue the tradition of excellence. Since its inception, Cardinal & Grey contributions have impacted the quality of the athletic experience for student-athletes in every sport by providing revenue beyond the annual operating budget. That revenue source typically allows us to:

  • strengthen the budgets of all of our teams;
  • expand our recruiting base in all sports;
  • enhance professional development opportunities for our staff;
  • support our student-athlete awards;
  • provide our student-athletes educational programming on a variety of important topics;
  • purchase special equipment for our teams as well as the latest training room modalities and software to care for our athletes;
  • recognize our senior athletes and championship teams; and
  • meet many other needs of the department.

In order to keep Muhlenberg College at the forefront of Centennial Conference athletics, we need the continued financial support of those with an interest in and a passion for Muhlenberg athletics. Every dollar contributed to the Cardinal & Grey Fund directly benefits our student athletes, and they need your support now more than ever. Many of our conference competitors have put together similar funding groups that are both larger and more productive.

We hope you will become a part of the team! You can contribute to Cardinal & Grey, contribute to a specific sport, or split your gift. The first $50 of any sport-specific gift over $100 will be used to help compensate for the annual financial support provided by the Cardinal & Grey Fund for that sport. Gifts of $1,500 and above qualify for membership in The Henry Melchior Muhlenberg Society.
