Barefoot Athletics Director position and to inspire other donors to endow as many of Babson's other 22 coaching positions as possible.

Babson is the top-ranked college in entrepreneurship education and is celebrating its Centennial this year.

The gift includes a challenge for Babson to raise an additional $1 million in endowed funds for athletics during the coming months. Their latest commitment is in addition to their ongoing support for the annual Brian Barefoot Athletics Challenge that seeks to increase donor participation for athletics through matching gifts.
