Thread: 'Matching Gift Challenge'

  1. #1

    Default 'Matching Gift Challenge'

    Anonymous Donors Challenge Eagle Nation to Support Athletics’ Endowments.

    The 'Matching Gift Challenge' will support student-athletes and the Coaches Continuity Fund.

    The family, who wishes to remain anonymous, will match up to $750k in gifts donated to student-athlete scholarship endowments and the Coaches Continuity Fund. They have also established the Tracy Ham Quarterback Scholarship and the Adrian Peterson Running Back Scholarship endowments.

    This family's financial commitment to endowments is unprecedented and is the first, and largest, of its kind in the history of Eagle Athletics.

    Support scholarship endowments and the Coaches Continuity Fund (and have your gift matched) at GSEagles.com/Match.

    ---
    The Coaches Continuity Fund can be used to benefit coaches in several ways. It can be used to supplement a coach's salary as well as reward them for what their team does on the field and in the classroom. The department's incentive program provides an opportunity for a coach to receive a bonus for the number of wins during their season, participation at conference championships and post-season games, conference and national coaching awards, and/or their student-athletes' Academic Progress Report (APR).

    This is a challenge to all the folks that can dish our 4 or 5 figure sums of money.

    Thousands of people donating $50 each won't get you anywhere close to the $750k mark.
    Don't choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    But what if 10,000 people donate $50, that's $500,000. Not all of our football fans are alumni.

    This is an incredibly generous gift. I hope we will raise the funds quickly. And yes, every dollar counts, large or small.

    It is not a "challenge," it is an "opportunity." It is not like any money will be returned if the total does not add up to $750k. Everybody give what you can... $1, $10, $100, $1000... it is just a good opportunity to double your donation.
