Jump to Gift Opportunities



Centenary University has an extraordinary opportunity to create a new athletic complex that will not only provide dedicated student-athletes with true home field advantage, but will also add tremendous value to the surrounding community. To bring “Our Diamond of Dreams” to life, we need your support!

Cyclone baseball is Centenary’s largest NCAA Division III team, but the team has been hampered by the lack of a home baseball field near campus. We now have a chance to build a state-of-the-art facility at the southeast corner of our Hackettstown campus that will serve Cyclone baseball and be available for use by local recreation leagues and high schools. The addition of this complex will enhance Centenary’s academic offerings, create new revenue opportunities and boost school spirit.

The great news is that we’ve already received significant commitments of support. Centenary Trustee and local Hackettstown resident Steve Somers is the lead donor for the project, and the Reeves Foundation has provided another challenge grant. But we still need to raise an additional $750,000 to meet these challenges and fully fund the project. We’re asking all baseball fans, Cyclone fans, Centenary alumni and friends to “pitch in” and help us hit a home run by making a gift or a pledge today. You can also make your gift as a multi-year pledge if that is most convenient for you. Together, we can knock it out of the park and enjoy Cyclone victory celebrations on “Our Diamond of Dreams” for years to come. Thanks for your support of our Cyclones.

David P. Haney, President
