The Athletic Phoenix Foundation exists to support Cumberland University Athletics across campus. Donors, Alumni, Fans, Families, and Friends now have the opportunity to designate their giving to specific sports in support of continued growth within our athletics program.
Rise Above as Champions
Throughout the 2022-23 season, Cumberland University Athletics achieved an impressive 4 Mid-South Conference Championships, 11 National Tournament appearances, and 5 Individual National Championships, all while earning a collective 3.234 GPA in the classroom and providing more than 2,000 hours of community service locally. It is obvious that our athletics program continues to rise above expectations and is creating champions in the classroom and on the field.
As we launch the Athletics Phoenix Foundation, we are excited to continue shaping the future of Athletics at Cumberland University. Help us rise together and support transformative growth and facility enhancements as we impact the lives of our local communities, college athletes, and future Cumberland University Phoenix.
