A new leadership council established by the Bobcat Club, which supports Texas State athletics, already has begun to yield results.
The Bobcat Club established its leadership council four months ago to assist in the solicitation of new and existing donors to the Texas State athletics’ student-athlete scholarship fund. In the last three months, the Bobcat Club has added 152 new members and already surpassed its membership totals from the 2009-10 fiscal year that ended in March.
“We are extremely thankful for the dedicated work of our leadership council members and their teams across the state,” said Chris Park, Texas State’s assistant athletic director for development. “Their hard work has helped propel our Bobcat Club donor base past last year’s total.”
The Texas State athletics department celebrated the work of the leadership council last weekend on the Champions Club Level in the Jerry D. and Linda Gregg Fields West Side Complex of Bobcat Stadium.
Several leadership council teams were recognized for their efforts in bringing new donors to Texas State Athletics. Leadership council member Brett Baker’s team won the new donor contest, co-chair Don Fry’s team won the most new and renewed dollars raised award and Kailey Slone’s team won the most new dollars raised award.
“We are excited to continue our Bobcat Club fundraising efforts from now until March 2011 and see where we will end up,” Park said.
The Bobcat Club is comprised of donors who are Texas State alumni, fans, former student-athletes, coaches and friends who donate to support student-athlete scholarships. The leadership council consists of Bobcat Club donors from across the state who volunteer to solicit new donors by getting friends, family and alumni involved with Texas State athletics.
