Anteater Band & Spirit Squad
Support the Anteater Band & Spirit Squad on UCI Giving Day!

Friends, Alumni & Fans of the Anteater Band & Spirit Squad

Thank you for showing support to us throughout the year. The goal of the Anteater Band & Spirit Squad is to support UC Irvine Athletics and the larger UC Irvine community. This year, the Anteater Band embarks on its 50th anniversary! The success of the Anteater Band & Spirit Squad is possible because of supporters like you

Giving Day gifts to the Anteater Band & Spirit Squad broadly helps both programs. Donations to the fund helps our Anteater Band, comprised of volunteer student band members, to not only attend most sporting events, but also goes towards uniform honorariums, purchasing/replacing instruments that students have needed to borrow throughout their musical careers, and team meals to make sure that they feel appreciated. These gifts also help our spirit squad with additional uniform pieces, travel expenses, camp fees, and team bonding activities. 

We are committed to growing our programs and increasing the experiences for our student athletes, and your support this Giving Day will help us achieve our goals. Go Anteaters! 

Together We Zot!
