Campaign for the Bugbee Family Pavilion Announced

Campaign for the Bugbee Family Pavilion Announced

TO DONATE, CLICK HERE, AND DESIGNATE BUGBEE FAMILY PAVILION

To honor the legacy of Coach Keith Bugbee, G'84, and the personal growth, leadership, determination, and commitment to family that are the foundation of the men's lacrosse program, Springfield College alumni and friends are raising funds to create the Bugbee Family Pavilion at Amos Alonzo Stagg Field.

Your donation to this project will recognize Coach Bugbee's incredible contributions to Springfield College and the student-athletes who had the privilege to learn from him, as well as to the sport of lacrosse nationally through the cadre of coaches he has helped develop. You can honor Coach Bugbee and the impact the men's lacrosse program had on you and your experience as a student-athlete by making your gift to this important project.

The Bugbee Family Pavilion

Securing the goal of $1,500,000 will allow the College to build a distinctive, multi-use facility in honor of Coach Bugbee and his family. The pavilion will be available before, during, and after all athletic events held at Stagg Field for families to watch the action on the field, as well as rally for a tailgate following a game. A key feature of the pavilion is a large rooftop observation platform, perfect for viewing a game from a heightened position. In addition, the facility will be used for team instruction, film review, classes, meetings, and conferences. The Bugbee Family Pavilion will be a welcome addition to the Springfield College Athletics experience.

The pavilion is designed to be synonymous with the traits of the Bugbee family: simple and strong with a traditional New England feel; family-oriented; and built to stand the test of time.  Located at the north end of the home bleachers, the structure is estimated to be approximately 50' x 75'.

There will be several naming opportunities at the pavilion, which also will feature a Leadership Wall recognizing donors who pledge a minimum of $2,500, payable over two years.

Please Join Us in This Lasting Tribute to the Bugbee Family

In the spirit of our Springfield College Humanics philosophy, honor a family and a Coach who continue to make an impact and inspire us with their resolve, love, and loyalty. 

A gift of $2,500 or more, which can be paid over two years, will secure your place on the Leadership Wall in the pavilion.
