CRIMSON CLUB ATHLETIC FUND KICKS OFF U BE COUNTED CAMPAIGN[bs_row class=”row”][bs_col class=”col-sm-4″]
[bs_col class=”col-sm-8″]The Crimson Club Athletic Fund (CCAF) kicked off its annual `U Be Counted’ membership drive today with the goal of raising awareness and needed funds to enhance Utah’s student-athletes experience.
The CCAF is trying to reach every fan that has a passion for Utah Athletics. If you want to support Utah student-athletes or increase your financial pledge, know that any donation is providing the needed resources to be competitive in the Pac-12 and nationally. The funds raised in the U Be Counted campaign is critical in providing the operating budgets within athletic department.
“The cornerstone of the campaign is to demonstrate the many ways in which people can help support Utah’s student-athletes,” Associate Athletics Director for External Relations Ann Argust said. “The `U Be Counted’ membership drive will raise awareness of where Athletics needs addition funds – from tuition, housing, travel, recruiting, uniforms, medical care and the new full cost of attendance, just to name a few. Any donation helps our student-athletes and department grow and become more successful.”
When you give to the Crimson Club Athletic Fund, you are directly helping provide the ultimate experience for over 400 student-athletes. There are a variety of ways to give to the Crimson Club Athletic Fund. If you have any additional questions, email email@example.com or contact your account representative at 801-585-UTES.[/bs_col]
