Women's Volleyball Project: Funding the Transformation

We are embarking on the first major renovation to the locker room since it was built in 1972. Please help us reach our goal of raising at least $10,000 to reconstruct and transform our locker room into a space that we can be proud of and use to take our team to the next level.  Any help from our alumni, current students, parents and the Northern Kentucky community will mean a lot to the program and the school. Make an impact today!

WHO BENEFITS

With NKU transitioning to Division I, we need to set ourselves apart from other schools. The new facility will help bring future prospects for the Norse, which will have a positive impact on the entire campus. The community will benefit from this project as the NKU women’s volleyball team climbs to the top of the Horizon League and make a statement in Division I athletics.

The women’s volleyball team will directly benefit from this project along with our coaching staff and future student-athletes. Program participants will spend a significant amount of time in the locker room throughout the year. The renovation will provide the team with more of their own space and a separate bathroom and shower. Coaching staff will have a separate space for showing film to their current student-athletes.  And this same space will be a great area for our athletes to lounge and study in between class times.

DONOR RECOGNITION 

Any size gift is greatly appreciated, but every donation of $500 or more will be recognized with the donor's name engraved on a plaque to be hung inside the locker room suite. The donor will also get a sneak peek opportunity to preview the space on a future date. This recognition will allow current and future players to see who had a part in making this renovation a reality.
