University of Maine Athletics Facilities Master Plan
At the University of Maine, we seek competitive excellence throughout our entire Athletic Department and among all of our 17 sport offerings. To help us get there, we have launched a comprehensive $110 million campaign to elevate the quality of all of our competitive venues. The Harold Alfond Foundation has kick-started this effort with a historic $90 million grant to the project. In order to leverage these funds, we have been tasked with raising $20 million over the next 10 years.
We need everyone who loves Black Bear Athletics to be a partner with us to help raise the additional funds to complete the project. It will provide support to maintain excellence in the state’s only Division I athletics program, strengthen gender equity, and provide a preferred destination for high school sports championships, large academic fairs and competitions, and community events.

Your Gift Matters
The Alfond 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 use our secure form 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 support the Alfond Fund!
More Ways to Support
You can also support Black Bear Athletics by purchasing tickets or season memberships to Football and Men's Ice Hockey.
