The endowment is a collection of donations that is invested in perpetuity and is designed to provide grants to offset program costs for those that require financial help to play at NRU. Our goal is to be able to meet 100% of this need through the interest income generated by the endowment.

Polly Zeiger was a long-time enthusiastic supporter of NRUSA, and all three of her children played or currently play soccer for NRU. This endowment is designed to help those in need and to honor Polly’s beautiful spirit. Polly’s legacy was her love of community and her drive to help children in need. In her memory, the Zeiger family created the endowment to benefit children playing with NRU.

The Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center's Soccer Pavilion is located at 1691 Innovation Drive in Blacksburg, VA.
