MAC OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVOLVEMENT MAC ANNUAL FUND
Gifts to the MAC Annual Fund help WVU Athletics achieve its goal of Advancing Scholarship and Building Champions, by providing the necessary resources for studentathlete scholarships, travel assistance, equipment upgrades, recruiting enhancements, and other essential budget relieving expenses. MAC members who make unrestricted contributions to the Annual Fund are also given the opportunity to purchase season tickets in priority seating areas. Unrestricted Annual Fund gifts qualify for football, men’s basketball and baseball priority seating and parking benefits.
SPORT SPECIFIC GIVING
Sport specific giving allows interested contributors to make gifts that are designated to a particular program(s) of your choice. This method of contribution assures that your gift is used to directly fund the sport of your choosing and cover identified needs specific to the program. Contributions to individual sports accelerate each sport’s pursuit of winning championships as well as give our student-athletes a leg up in the classroom. Through sport specific gifts, donors can ensure that the true intent of your gift is being realized by student-athletes in the sport(s) of your choice.
In addition to funding scholarships for WVU student-athletes, MAC members play a pivotal role in the enhancement, construction and maintenance of first-class athletic facilities. For recruiting purposes, it is essential that our facilities exceed the expectations of prospective student-athletes and compare favorably to other schools in the BIG 12 Conference and the nation. As always, maintaining facilities and strategically planning for the future is an ongoing process. Current major gift opportunities are available in facility campaigns, program enhancements, recruiting funds, scholarship endowments and mentorship programs. All major gifts and pledges to WVU Athletics — above and beyond those for football, men’s basketball and baseball ticket priorities — that match or exceed $50,000 qualify for recognition in the All-American Society. All-American Society donors are invited to exclusive events with Mountaineer coaches and administrators throughout the year and are recognized on campus in a variety of ways. AllAmerican Society gifts do not offer football, men’s basketball or baseball season ticket priorities; although they may have an impact on season ticket seating and parking locations should donors also participate in the MAC Annual Fund.
