Another TAGD is in the books. Tiger Athletics Give Day has concluded, and official results are pending.
We will have an update when those results are final. In the meantime thank you to everyone for your incredible support of Princeton Athletics and our 1,000 varsity student-athletes.
TAGD, back for the sixth year, built on the tremendous success of the first five years, which raised more than $10 million to enhance the experience of Princeton’s 1,000 varsity student-athletes. We set a new TAGD record by raising over $3.1 million for the Princeton Varsity Club and Athletics Friends Groups!
The 17 Athletics Friends Groups competed for the most total donors and dollars raised, with more than $200,000 of bonus funds on the line, generously provided by the Princeton Varsity Club Board of Directors. This year’s challenge to the Friends’ groups was to “Raise the Bar” and strive to beat their five-year averages in donors and dollars. The results of these competitions are still being finalized, you may view unofficial leaderboards can be found on the TAGD wesbite.
Additionally, the Princeton Varsity Club competed in a separate competition, with a goal of securing 15 new PVC Lifetime Members (PDF) on the day. We are excited to report that we achieved that goal, and welcomed 17 new PVC Lifetime Members on TAGD.
“The incredible generosity and loyalty of our Friends’ groups directly benefits our amazing student-athletes and enables them to ‘Achieve, Serve, Lead’ at their highest level,” says Ford Family Director of Athletics Mollie Marcoux Samaan ’91. “TAGD has had such a positive effect on so many of our teams in its first five years, and we’re looking forward to another exciting and fun day of competition between the Friends’ groups. We’ve talked about how we’re still ‘on the hunt’ even as we approach 500 all-time Ivy League championships, and everyone here knows that we’d never been able to do what we do and provide the experience for the student-athletes that we do without the help of our entire Team Around The Team, of which our Friends’ groups are such an important part.”
Thank you Tiger Nation for your tremendous support of our varsity student-athletes!
