Auburn University is one of only 12 colleges
in the country with a wheelchair basketball team. The Auburn Tigers
compete in the National Wheelchair Basketball Association's (NWBA)
College Division against other SEC schools like the University of
Alabama and the University of Missouri.
A donation to the team can help in a variety of ways. Gifts to the
Wheelchair Sports Program cover general expenses such as wheelchairs
designed for basketball (which can cost up to $5,000), travel expenses,
and other necessary equipment and supplies.
Gifts to the scholarship fund help eligible student athletes pay for
college expenses. Establishing an ongoing gift to this fund will help
ensure that scholarships for the Wheelchair Basketball Team are
generated for years to come.
