Recruiting is essential to each one of our athletic programs. To compete for championships and truly Develop Champions, we must first recruit the highest caliber student-athletes, a cause our Deacon Club members support through their annual contributions. And just as we rely on new recruits to improve our athletic programs, the Deacon Club leans on new donors to build a larger network of support that provides our coaches and student-athletes with the resources they need to succeed.
With this in mind, the Deacon Club is pleased to announce the launch of the “Recruit A Deac” campaign to empower our members to recruit individuals to join them in shaping the future of Wake Forest Athletics. Each and every one of us has a friend (or five) that we can consider “prospects” for a new Deacon Club member and most of the time we can easily identify these “recruits”. They are former classmates who attended the 2006 ACC Championship victory, co-workers we text and email after games, or even the neighbors with the Wake Forest flag flying high in their front yard. By encouraging these prospects to join us in supporting our coaches and student-athletes through joining and supporting the Deacon Club, we can further our impact in transforming the future of Wake Forest Athletics.
The “Recruit a Deac” campaign allows our members to refer their friends, family, co-workers, etc. to the Deacon Club in a fun and easy way. Members can simply visit the “Recruit A Deac” website (www.deaconclub.com/referrals), call us at (336) 758-5626 or even use the space now provided on pledge cards to provide contact info for anyone who would make a great Deacon Club member. The Deacon Club will take it from there! You will then earn priority points for any new or increased giving to the Annual Fund by one of your recruits. Helping someone to join our team is a terrific way to further your impact and help us reach our vision of Developing Champions.
To thank those who participate in the “Recruit A Deac” campaign, the Deacon Club will be offering great prizes throughout the year to those who both refer the most new Deacon Club members and those who generate the most new dollars through their referrals. Please be sure to visit the “Recruit A Deac” website (www.deaconclub.com/referrals) and follow us on social media to view our leaderboards and learn more about our exciting prizes.
There is truly power in numbers, and there is no greater way to increase our impact than to encourage those around us to join in our efforts. I look forward to an exciting year for the Deacon Club and to the bright future of Wake Forest Athletics.
