As an integral part of the Niagara University community, the athletics program strives to create an environment that challenges student-athletes to reach their full academic and athletics potential. The Vincentian mission and core values that reflect strong work ethic, leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, fairness and service are actively promoted with an emphasis on the intellectual, personal and spiritual growth of the student-athletes.
A gift to the Purple & White Club will enable us to recruit outstanding student-athletes and to enhance the athletic experience for them, as well as for our coaches and fans. You can donate a restricted gift to your favorite team, to a special project or to the general athletics fund.
