The Lyons Athletic Club (LAC) promotes excellence in intercollegiate athletics at Wheaton College through the support and participation of alums, parents, and friends. In partnership with Wheaton’s Department of Athletics and the Office of College Advancement, the LAC raises funds to support athletics. All gifts to the LAC count toward Wheaton’s alumni participation.
How does the LAC work?
You have a variety of options. Your gift to the Lyons Athletic Club may be directed to the General Athletics Fund where the funds will be used for a variety of projects, such as program and/or facilities enhancements. You can also direct your gift to a specific team or teams, or, you can support a combination of both the general athletic fund and a team.
Your Gifts at Work
Gifts to the Lyons Athletic Club help our athletic programs in many ways. They enhance the budgets of our 21 varsity intercollegiate teams, provide funds for extra equipment, supplies and travel, help with athletic facility needs, and assure that our student-athletes have the proper tools necessary to be competitive at the NEWMAC and national level.
Can I give to a specific team?
Yes! Support of individual teams provides the coach with additional funds to enhance the program.
