TRU Athletics Program Enhancement Fund

Investment - $25k

Timeline: Ongoing

Description – Ongoing program enhancements are imperative to keep TRU’s Department of Athletics up-to-date with the latest computer software, training tools and sporting equipment. Each year, staff identifies the most critical program upgrades; however, due to a lack of funds, many necessary purchases are often deferred. A dedicated fund that allows TRU’s Department of Athletics to finance areas of greatest need will allow programs to grow and evolve.
