Black Bear Fund
The Black Bear Fund is the University of Maine’s athletic fundraising program which benefits the hundreds of scholar athletes who compete in the state’s only NCAA Division I programs. You can choose to support a specific team or a specific need (such as scholarships), or you can choose to make an unrestricted gift that UMaine athletics will use where “the need is the greatest.” Regardless of where you designate your gift within UMaine Athletics, or what type of gift you make, your gift will count toward the Black Bear Fund!
Please consider participating in the Harold Alfond ® Football Challenge! The Harold Alfond ® Foundation has challenged UMaine to raise $250,000 for Black Bear Football! If UMaine meets certain conditions, the Harold Alfond ® Foundation will match gifts to UMaine Football on a 1:1 basis up to $250,000!
