The Gene Bartow Fund For Excellence provides Blazer fans the opportunity to honor The Father of UAB Athletics and his legacy by supporting UAB student-athletes. Coach Bartow was a mentor, leader and visionary, who built a program that thrilled a city and brought instant name recognition and credibility to a young university-helping to make UAB what it is today and shaping what it can become tomorrow.
Your support will help ensure that his legacy will continue to live in every great green and gold moment, in every excited fan, dedicated athlete, and all proud Blazer alumni.
The Gene Bartow Fund For Excellence will be used to enhance the athletic facilities on campus and for the overall benefit of UAB's student-athletes. UAB Athletics' annual budget supports scholarships, team travel, facilities and recruiting. It was a dream of Coach Bartow to position UAB Athletics for continual success, and with your support we can make this dream a reality.
