    Default Wrestling endowments

    Does anyone know of a college wrestling team that has been endowed?
    What school and how large was the endowment?

    What about Art Matori's rescue of the ASU prgram?
    Was that an endowment?

    I'm pretty sure Leigh.

    I also seem to think Franklin & Marshall.

    Not 100% sure of either.

    The examples I can think of aren't programs that are endowed, but positions within the program. The coaching positions at both Cornell and Penn are endowed.

    Missouri started a wrestling endowment last year, but I don't know if that's to secure the entire program, or just coaching positions and scholarships within the program.

    I found a ron of school looking to raise endowments through a web search.
    Only a few had $$ attached:

    ASU isn't yet endowed:
    http://asuwrestling.com/index.html

    A donor has come forward to ensure the reinstatement of the program but, make no mistake, the program needs to be endowed in order to guarantee the program forever.

    Our initial goal is to raise eight million dollars within the next three years for the endowment of the wrestling program....which ultimately strives to have a $12 to $13 million dollar endowment fund


    Also found Bucknellhttp://www.nywrestling.com/college/a...l_donation.htm

    Two specific sports programs at Bucknell University -- men's wrestling and women's crew -- along with other women's sports will be greatly bolstered thanks to a $5.6-million private donation by William Graham, chairman and chief executive officer of The Graham Company located in Philadelphia.
    ... Primarily through endowments, the gift will underwrite all aspects of the wrestling budget


    And Princeton
    http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/a.../S10/66/04E96/

    The Friends of Princeton Wrestling...has successfully concluded a campaign to establish an endowment of more than $3 million for Princeton's varsity wrestling program.

    Scholarships are endowed at Lehigh, Oregon State, and UNC (Dust can correct me if I'm wrong on them). As ODH points out, there are also endowed coaching positions. Lehigh is another example.

    Our next goal at Maryland is to try to endow some scholarships. The economy kind of put a crimp in our immediate plans.

    I believe the coach of the OSU Beavs is also endowed.

    From a personal perspective, I am well endowed. If you know what I mean
    Gold is an idiot.

    Obviously, that's very personal perspective. Others may disagree.

    Um, that was Blue who pointed it out.
