Give to Radford

You can take a major role in RU athletics success by joining The Radford Athletic Club! The Radford Athletic Club (RAC) is the driving force behind the Radford University (RU) Highlanders. As a private donor and volunteer, your investment in our student-athletes gives RU a chance to compete at the highest levels on and off the court. RAC donations increase scholarship funding and defer some of the academic costs associated with providing our student-athletes with one of the finest educations Virginia has to offer. In addition to scholarship support, private dollars enhance current venues, build state-of-the-art facilities and allow our students to compete at the Division I level. Join today.
