Thanks To Our Recent Donors!


Rider is more than halfway toward its goal of transforming Alumni Gym into a modern NCAA Division I arena. Propelled by an anonymous $2.5 million gift, the Rider Athletic Arena Project has entered its final phase. Now it’s your turn to leave your mark. 

Help us energize the campus by modernizing one of the most visible parts of the Rider athletic program and the home of Broncs men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, and wrestling. Whether you played on a Rider team or were part of the Broncs’ Zoo cheering from the stands, or are simply a fan of "all things Rider," this is your chance to display your name as a proud supporter of the University. 

We invite you to help us bring it home!

    Support of this project will create an exceptional game-day experience for Rider fans and student-athletes, and help build school pride and engagement across the University. Give $500 and above and you will have the opportunity to make your mark on the Arena project. Name an arena seat for $500, a men's or woman's basketball locker or a volleyball locker for $1,000 (based on availability), a padded courtside seat for $2,500 (based on availability), or join other prominent donors on our Donor Wall ($5,000+).

    (Donors will be recognized on arena seats and lockers. Upon making your donation, you will be contacted by University Advancement to discuss specific character limits. Seats and lockers will not be owned by donors and a donation will not substitute for the future purchase of game tickets. Volleyball locker naming will be added upon completion of the new volleyball locker room.)
