Service Circle Membership

Service_Circle_MSEach year, the PVC is contacted by civic-minded Princeton student-athletes and coaches about opportunities to give back to the community. In 2010, the PVC began offering its members the opportunity to make donations that will benefit these efforts.

Tiger student-athletes have the opportunity to apply for support grants from the PVC by completing an application process. If their community-based project is selected, the PVC will offer funding and operational assistance to the student-athlete(s), assisting them in seeing their ideas through to fruition. Manny Sardinha ’12 appears at right, at his 2011 PVC Service Circle event supporting the A-T Children’s Project (

A portion of each Service Circle donation will be allocated to these student-run initiatives. A $500+ Service Circle-level gift includes an annual $150 PVC Annual Membership donation. This donation provides funding for annual PVC events and initiatives that support and benefit all Princeton student-athletes, including, but not limited to:

  • The PVC Awards Banquet, honoring student-athletes, alumni and supporters of Princeton Athletics
  • The PVC Letter Sweater Program
  • Tigers in the Community and Weapons of Mass Construction
  • The Jake McCandless ’51 PVC Speaker Series
  • PVC Networking Nights and career programming

Above and beyond the opportunity to attend Service Circle events, you will also receive the annual PVC Membership Pin, invitations to attend additional PVC events for you and a guest, and a subscription to the PVC News (published quarterly).
