The Panther Club LAIR Fund, the lifeblood of Eastern Illinois Athletics, provides annual funding for scholarships, academic support services, and leadership programs that provide Eastern Illinois University’s more than 430 student-athletes with the resources they need to become well rounded individuals, compete at the NCAA Division I level, and engage in a lifelong pursuit of learning.
Investing in the future of a student-athlete through contributing to the LAIR Fund represents your commitment to Eastern Illinois Athletics as alumni, fans, and generous supporters. The financial gifts you provide ultimately transform young adults into future leaders
, provide resources for student-athletes to achieve
their potential in the classroom, allow student-athletes to develop integrity
through personal and professional challenges, and provide student-athletes with opportunities to become responsible
representatives of Eastern Illinois University.
Your generous donations to the LAIR Fund make a lasting impact on the lives of all of our student-athletes.
In addition to the LAIR Fund, the Panther Club develops resources through gift-in-kind programs, special events, golf outings, and campaigns. Click on the links for more information on how the Panther Club and its donors support EIU student-athletes!
