Spartan Club exceeds goal for third straight year

The UNCG Spartan Club, the official fundraising organization for UNCG Athletics, exceeded its annual scholarship fund goal for the third consecutive year and had a double-digit percentage increase for the third straight year.

The 2013-14 athletic scholarship fund goal was $375,000 and the Spartan Club eclipsed that mark by raising $375,978, an all-time high and a 10 percent increase over last year’s total. Additionally, the Spartan Club set a record for the number of donors to the athletic scholarship fund with a total of 887 donors.

The highlight of the year was the launch of the True Spartan Challenge, a student-athlete giving campaign that saw 100 percent of UNCG student-athletes make a gift back to their team enrichment funds.
