Donate to the Fund

The Boand & Rowe Endowment for Advancement of Women in Sports & Physical Activity was created as part of a celebration of 40 years of Title IX, but more so as a reminder of the work that still needs to be done relevant to equity in sport and physical activity.

The fund is named in honor of Joan Boand and Patti Rowe — two extraordinary women whose leadership and passion for activities that encourage and promote the advancement and awareness of equality under Title IX has made a long-lasting impact on students, faculty and staff members, and the community.

It will provide support for students with a passion for advancing girls and women in sport and physical activity as part of their academic journey at Grand Valley State University. The fund will support both a scholarship and a leadership development award for students to attend conferences, workshops or to help fund research opportunities.
