A celebration of the 50th year anniversary of Title IX.
Fifty years ago, women fought to make their voices heard. They spoke out against discrimination, demanded equality, and evoked change that would transform the world. June 23, 2022 marks the 50th year anniversary of Congress passing Title IX, thereby prohibiting discrimination based on gender in athletics and education. Fifty years later, in celebration of this landmark legislation, Women In Flight is elevating our mission and leading the charge to further grow support of women’s athletics.
Through a yearlong campaign, we’re encouraging women to “Go Do Anything” – a message to inspire, empower, and support women everywhere. With a fundraising goal of $9 million dollars, we aim to grow on the foundation we have built with Women In Flight and further enhance the Oregon female student-athlete experience with scholarships, technology, facilities, and more.
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL:
Funds raised in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX positively impact Oregon’s female student-athletes. Click on each section below to learn about how you can make an impact.
Outright gifts to Women In Flight provide aid to female student-athletes for the given year of education. Endowed scholarships provide educational opportunities and an enduring legacy in your name or the name of a loved one. With a yearly cost of $150,000 per student-athlete, outright gifts at any level and endowments starting at $100,000 help provide academic and nutritional support, student-athlete development, and medical services.
With technology revolutionizing the way athletes train and increasing their athletic potential, technological enhancements for Oregon’s women’s athletic programs are a priority resource Women In Flight hopes to provide moving forward.
Your gift supports enhancements for a variety of women’s sports facilities, including the turf at Papé Field where more than 50 student-athletes on the soccer and the lacrosse teams compete every day.
As pioneers in the space, Women In Flight and the University of Oregon seek to inspire other organizations and athletic departments to rethink how they support women’s athletics. Women In Flight provides resources and assistance to other programs looking to enhance their own female student-athlete experience.
Women In Flight is dedicated to sustainable support for Oregon women’s athletics. By making a gift to help endow the Women In Flight program, you help provide female student-athletes, women’s athletic staff members, and the Women In Flight community with support in perpetuity to make an increasingly impactful difference for years to come.
