We are extremely excited that Tiger Athletics Give Day (#TAGD) returns for Year No. 5! This 24-hour giving challenge will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
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. Thanks to the generous contributions from the Princeton Varsity Club Board of Directors and Advisory Committee, Bonus Funds have and will continue to be at stake across several unique competitions, helping to spur excitement through the midnight hour.
The first four 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 $2.45 million in gifts across more than 8,000 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 engagement, and we look to continue this success on November 27th.
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” for Year No. 5 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,
