Michael Wright A-Club Scholarship Endowment

In memory of Arizona Basketball player, Michael Wright, his former teammates, managers, coaches and team staff members established this endowment to provide scholarship support for a former Arizona student-athlete who has finished their NCAA eligibility and wants to return to the University of Arizona to complete their undergraduate degree.

Quotes from teammates, coaches & friends:
Mike was a brother to me. He would give me or anyone else the shirt off his back if he thought we needed it. He was a tireless worker, when no one was watching Mike was working out. No one was more dependable than Mike, his strength came from within and he rose above many obstacles in his life. We should cherish the time we spent with him, hold his memories close and understand that at this moment he watches us all from above. We love you Mike and miss you. - Jack & Michelle Murphy

Michael was a great person, teammate and friend. He will be greatly missed. - John Ash

Rest in peace Michael, we will miss you. -John & Kara Castles

I loved my time at U of A and the experience I had there. The centerpiece of that time was my teammates and the bonds of brotherhood that we forged. Mike was a man of few words, but his heart and toughness knew no bounds. We will forever miss Mike, but his memory will live on, not just within our own minds, but now through this scholarship and the lives it can positively impact in Mike's name. - Luke Walton

I love you Michael, Rest in Peace My Friend. -Josh Pastner

It was an honor and a privilege to know you and watch you succeed in Tucson. Rest in peace. -Brett & Lindsay Hansen

This scholarship is important to me and my Arizona brothers, because Michael meant so much to us. He gave us, and all of the Arizona basketball community, everything and never asked for anything in return. His life was one of dignity, strength and selflessness. We miss you Mike for now and forever. – Richard Jefferson

Rest in Peace Michael -Tim & Amanda House

Michael was one of the kindest young men that I have ever known. He was hard-working, honest, and a gentle person. His work ethic on the court, in the classroom, and in the community was outstanding. He will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune of knowing him. I am not at all surprised that the former players and managers had the wonderful idea of a scholarship in Michael's name. Our teams have always been a family and we love and care for one another as such. We are always there for each other. We will always remember Michael. -Lute & Kelly Olson

About this Campaign

Make a donation to support the Wright Scholarship Endowment & help pay tribute to Wildcat Basketball player, Michael Wright.

Help Fund This Endowment

In the days following his tragic death, Michael's teammates rallied together to find a fitting way to pay tribute to their friend.

As a result, this group has pledged $50,000 to establish an endowment to honor Michael. It is our hope that fans and community members will donate to this fund to help us reach our goal.

Why Support the Wright Scholarship Endowment?

  • It's a gift that keeps on giving
  • Interest from the endowment is used to fund a scholarship each year
  • Ultimately, to fully fund the Michael Wright Scholarship, the endowment will need to reach $350,000
  • A fully funded endowment generates approximately $14,000/year in perpetuity
  • Your support helps honor the qualities that Michael embodied including hard work, loyalty, dedication and being a true Wildcat

    Donations to the Michael Wright A-Club Scholarship Endowment are considered tax-deductible. Contributions of $100 or more will also make individuals a Wildcat Club Member.
