UCATS - University of Cincinnati Athletics Team Support

Since 1979, UCATS has been the framework for supporting the efforts of Bearcats student-athletes.  As the principal fundraising arm of athletics, UCATS provides a way for individuals to help talented young people receive a quality education while ensuring UC’s tradition of academic and athletic excellence.

UCATS donors are a key part of the UC Athletics community and are essential to the future success of Bearcats Athletics.  Their annual contributions provide vital financial support which helps offset the educational expenses of more than 550 Bearcats student-athletes, enabling them to succeed in the classroom, in their respective sport and in the community.  Its donors are alumni, friends and advocates of the university who recognize the value of the intercollegiate athletics experience here at the University of Cincinnati.

New UCATS members under the age of 40 have a unique opportunity to get involved and dramatically help broaden our base of support.  For the first two (2) years of UCATS membership, you are only required to pay half (½) the minimums of traditional membership, yet still receive all the benefits associated with your respective giving level.

This is an excellent opportunity to support UC Athletics and become a member of UCATS for half the price!

UC’s student-athletes thank you for your support!
