The Tom Wood Wood Court Scholarship Endowment, named in honor of legendary Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Wood, is Cal Poly Humboldt’s first endowment supporting men’s and women’s basketball scholarships in perpetuity. Wood, one of Cal Poly Humboldt’s all-time great coaches, consistently set a high standard of excellence, but more important was his commitment to his student-athletes. Wood always conducted his program with the players' best interests in mind, academically, athletically, and personally.

Now it’s time to honor his incredible legacy through a gift to the Tom Wood Court Scholarship Endowment. Once the required fundraising goal of $350,000 is reached, the basketball court inside Lumberjack Arena will be renamed to “Tom Wood Court”. Gifts will support scholarships to basketball student-athletes. All charitable contributions to this endowment are tax-deductible.

If you have any questions or are interested in making a gift by check, please contact Stacie Lyans, Associate Director of Development, Athletics at 707.826.5104 or stacie.lyans@humboldt.edu
