The goal of the Adopt-A-Gryphon program is to raise funds to support and enhance each of the University of Guelph's varsity teams. For example, funds can be used to purchase team equipment, support out of conference (exhibition) competition or provide additional training aids; all with the intent of improving the student-athlete experience and making our teams more competitive.
