The "Friends of" Committees are organized under the umbrella of the Maroon Club. The mission of a Lafayette Friends program is to connect supporters with a specific athletic program, while building an active donor base to raise funds. A "Friends of" Committee also provides opportunities for the Maroon Club and the coaches to communicate their achievements, financial needs, and future direction to their supporters. The Friends programs also provide an opportunity to promote support of the Maroon Club General Fund. A gift to a specific varsity sport through its Friends program supplements the team's operational budget in the following ways:

• Assistant Coach's salaries
• Equipment Needs
• Recruiting
• Spring Break and Out of Region Travel
• Field Enhancements

Volunteer participation is key to the Maroon Club's success. You can become a Maroon Club volunteer by contacting Joe Giaimo, Executive Director of the Maroon Club, at or 610-330-3116.
