Role of the 'Friends Groups' within the Maroon Club

The "Friends of" groups are essential elements of the Maroon Club, an organization consisting of more than 2,000 members raising a record-breaking total of more than $750,000 in 2006-07. There are several "Friends of" groups which have become increasingly more active in recent years, most notably in football, soccer, basketball and lacrosse. Each of the "Friends of" groups is under the umbrella of the Maroon Club and works closely with the Executive Director of the Maroon Club. All activities performed by these organizations - both friend-raising and fund-raising - directly enhance the sport-specific Maroon Club accounts.
