The Friends of Skidmore Athletics (FOSA) initiative promotes the improvement of the College's athletics program. In addition to helping coordinate the Thoroughbred Cup, FOSA also provides the fundraising framework through which donors can support the overall athletics program, our intramural sports activities, our fitness and recreation programming, and individual intercollegiate teams. Proceeds from the golf outing will be used to support an ongoing initiative to strengthen resources for intercollegiate teams at Skidmore.
