Maroon Club Makes End of Fiscal Year Push


June 25, 2018


EASTON, Pa. –
The Lafayette College Maroon Club is in the final week of its fiscal year and is quickly approaching its end of fund year goals. To date, the Maroon Club has successfully raised over $1.2 million since July 1, 2017.

The Maroon Club has set an annual goal of $1.65 million for this fiscal year, ending on Saturday.

“Thank you to all of our alumni, parents and friends who continue to support Lafayette Athletics at every level,” said Josh Azer, Lafayette’s Director of Athletic Development. “The athletic administration at Lafayette is committed to enhancing the student-athlete experience and we cannot do this without the loyal support of our donors. Your continued support of our athletic department through the Maroon Club will help us deliver a first-class Division I experience to our student-athletes.”

There are many ways gifts to the Maroon Club directly impact the success of the athletics department. Gifts to the General Fund support the Oaks Leadership Academy, strength and conditioning programs, athletic training resources, the bi-annual Career Development Series and other department-wide programs.

“The Lafayette family is entering each day with energy and enthusiasm to improve the experience for our student-athletes and promote a mindset of continuous improvement throughout the entire department,” Director of Athletics Sherryta Freeman added. “Your gifts help provide the resources to achieve a vision of excellence in all that we do. Thank for your support of that vision.”
