Binghamton Rugby needs you!

Calling all Devil Lords!!

The Binghamton University Foundation, guided by the leadership and financial commitment of Sean White ’93, Lee Nesser ’92 and Michael Geller ’95, has created the first of its kind, endowed account to benefit the legendary Binghamton University Rugby Club. This endowed account ensures that Devil Lords for generations to come will benefit from the generosity of those who came before them.

The Devil Lords Rugby Endowment will live on in perpetuity to ensure the club receives funding for travel, uniforms, tournament fees and other needs to keep the program running at full strength. This account is funded exclusively by private donations from alumni and friends, and will have no adverse effect on funding the club currently receives from the Student Association. The students participating in the club, together with their Campus Recreation staff advisor, and with oversight by the Devil Lord donating alumni, will have the ability to determine the use of the funds each year.

This account will endow, and begin to produce annual dividends for the club, when the principal balance reaches $35,000. Sean’s, Lee’s and Michael’s generous gifts have moved the needle well past the halfway mark.

Now we’re calling on you to help us reach the goal. Please consider a gift that shows your commitment to ensuring that Rugby will continue to thrive on Binghamton’s campus. We know that Devil Lords don’t operate on minimums. We’re confident that this account will continue to grow and provide more opportunities for each class that has the privilege to carry on your proud tradition.
