Letter from the Top THE PAF IS BACK, AND BETTER THAN EVER! Since 1970, the Pacific Athletic Foundation, and later the Pacific Tigers Athletics Association, has provided valuable scholarship support for Pacific student-athletes thanks to donations from hundreds of loyal and generous donors each and every year. Beginning in 2012-13, the newly relaunched Pacific Athletic Foundation has expanded its operation in order to increase its impact. Now, all donors to Pacific Athletics are valued members of the PAF - whether you give to the PAF Scholarship Fund, a Sport-Specific Fund, an Athletics Endowment Fund, and/or via Gifts-In-Kind. Depending on your giving level, you are eligible to receive exciting PAF membership benefits such as preferred parking, pre-Â game hospitalities, and access to the best seats in the house. The Pacific Athletic Foundation is dedicated to taking Pacific Athletics to the next level. It is our goal to provide the funds necessary for each of Pacificâ€™s 16 intercollegiate athletics teams to be competitive every year for conference championships. Your thoughtful and generous support of the PAF is greatly appreciated. Your donations make all the difference! Thank you, and Go Tigers!
