We are extremely excited that Tiger Athletics Give Day (#TAGD) is back for another year! This 24-hour giving challenge will take place on Tuesday, November 28, 2017.
TAGD has yielded fierce and spirited competition amongst our 37 varsity teams and 17 Athletics Friends Groups, and served as a tremendous fundraising vehicle for the Department of Athletics. We are extremely grateful to the Princeton Varsity Club Board of Directors and Advisory Committee for generously contributing $200,000 in Bonus Funds to be paid out across the four unique challenges.
The first three TAGD days have been incredible successes - more gifts were received on each of these days than any other day in Princeton history. Last year alone yielded $1.9 million in gifts across more than 8,500 donors. The response to our call for support has been overwhelming, and every student-athlete has been directly impacted by the money that has been raised. These funds have helped fund initiatives such as locker room upgrades, international and out-of-region team travel and advances in sport-specific technology, to name a few. TAGD has contributed to year-over-year increases in dollars raised and donor participation, and we look to continue this success on November 28th.
Your generosity has and will continue to provide our Princeton varsity student-athletes greater opportunities to ACHIEVE, to SERVE and to LEAD and ensure that our Tiger programs are able to compete at the highest level. We sincerely appreciate everything you do to support Princeton Athletics, and hope you will “Tiger Up” and make a gift on Tiger Athletics Give Day.
37 Varsity Teams. 17 Athletics Friends Groups. 1 Princeton Varsity Club. ONE Princeton Athletics Family.
With great appreciation,
