The Princeton Athletics community rallied in support of its varsity student-athletes and teams as it celebrated the 9th annual Tiger Athletics Give Day (#TAGD) on Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
Each of the 18 Athletics Friends Groups engaged in friendly competitions, competing for central bonus funds in the categories of Total Donors and Total Dollars. The support and enthusiasm of more than 6,700 donors helped the campaign set a new $3.9 million fundraising record while achieving the department’s Roaring Together goal of 6,000 collective donors.
In addition to these Athletics Friends Group competitions, the Princeton Varsity Club once again held its Lifetime Membership Challenge, looking to secure 10+ new PVC Lifetime Members on TAGD. Thanks to the generosity of a number of Princetonians, the PVC acquired 12 new Lifetime Members on the day, earning $10,000 of Bonus Funds in the process. The PVC Lifetime Membership program now stands at 355 members strong since its inception in 2010, having contributed nearly $1.8 million in support of the PVC and its mission – to learn more about becoming a PVC Lifetime Member and the benefits of this program, click here.
The PVC and the entire Princeton Department of Athletics would like to thank all of the alumni, family and friends who contributed to the day and demonstrated their support in so many meaningful ways. Additionally, we remain incredibly grateful for the Princeton Varsity Club Board of Directors, who once again joined together to contribute more than $200,000 in bonus funds (now more than $1.7 million through nine years of TAGD) to help drive this impactful initiative. Every gift supports our mission of Education Through Athletics and we are extremely grateful for the continued commitment of so many Princeton Athletics supporters.
