An anonymous donor recently made a $500,000 gift to support Villanova Women’s Basketball, reports

The leadership gift will go toward the Villanova Women’s Basketball Davis Center Office Suite Renovation Project. It is the largest gift ever given by an individual to the women’s basketball program.

The announcement was made by Villanova University Vice President and Director of Athletics Mark Jackson.

“I am both humbled by the generosity of an individual donor and incredibly proud of the success our women’s basketball program has had which helps bring to fruition landmark days such as this one,” Jackson said.

“This gift goes beyond supporting the office suite renovation project and is an investment in the bright future of Villanova Women’s Basketball under the leadership of Denise Dillon,” he said.

The women’s basketball office suite on the first floor of the Davis Center is undergoing a complete renovation.

The building has been home to Villanova Basketball since it opened in November 2007.

The renovations will include enhanced spaces for meetings and film review, along with state-of-the-art amenities available to the Wildcats student-athletes and coaching staff.
