From the President of the Maroon Club, Cindy Linville '80
Dear Loyal Leopards,
I am so grateful and honored to serve my College as the new Maroon Club President. First, I want to thank over 1,865 alumni, parents and friends who supported the Maroon Club this past fiscal year. All of your efforts resulted in raising $1,141,635 to support our student -athletes, representing the best fundraising year in our 75-year history. I know together we will continue to go for gold and surpass our fundraising goals in the upcoming year!
Your gift to the Lafayette Maroon Club supports our organizational goal of enhancing ALL 23 Division I athletic programs at Lafayette College. We welcome gifts to the Maroon Club General Fund as well as the "Friends of" programs.
The Maroon Club General Fund is the foundation on which the success and educational opportunities for our student-athletes is based. This fund supports the four cornerstones of the Maroon Club: Education (including the Maroon Club Career Development Series and leadership advancement for student-athletes and coaches through the Oaks Leadership Academy), Common Support Programs (including support of athletic trainers, the strength and conditioning program, and daily student-athlete transportation to Metzgar Fields Complex), Alumni and Student Outreach (including the Hall of Fame and important events like our fall and spring golf outings), and Marketing and Promotion (which includes the Lafayette Sports Network and GoLeopards.com Daily, the official email newsletter of Lafayette Athletics).
A gift to the "Friends of" programs can provide important funding for sport-specific initiatives based on the annual needs of our 23 Division I athletic programs.
As we look forward, our goals for the coming years are to establish endowments for head coaching positions and to optimize the coordination of our efforts between the Development Office, coaches, "Friends of" programs and the alumni, parents and friends.
Thank you for your consideration and continued support of the Lafayette Maroon Club. We hope to see you on the sidelines, cheering on our exceptional student-athletes who wear the Maroon and White colors with pride!
