Giving Level Increase Helps Close Scholarship Gap

01/05/15

Dear Deacon Club members,Faircloth_Barry

Early this fall, the Deacon Club announced giving level increases for the first time since 2005. After careful consideration, this change was made to help close the widening gap that exists between funds raised through the Annual Fund and endowment payout and total scholarship costs that must be paid each year by the athletic department.

Although the 110% Campaign and other recent initiatives have helped increase support for the Annual Fund, we have been unable to keep pace with rising scholarship costs. For 2014-2015, the new giving level increase is voluntary, going into full effect next year.

Many donors have already responded to the need for increased donations, and have either pledged or given at the new giving level. Partly as a result of these generous supporters, the Annual Fund donations are up 11% over the previous year, and we have welcomed 198 new members to the Deacon Club. This is a tremendous accomplishment which will help offset scholarship increases as well as protect the operating budgets of our sports. We greatly appreciate the generosity of the members who have voluntarily given at the new levels, listed below.

Thank you to all of our members for supporting student-athlete scholarships at Wake Forest. You truly make a difference and are critical in our mission of Developing Champions.

Go Deacs!

Barry
