CHARLESTON, S.C. - The College of Charleston Cougar Club held its annual endowment breakfast Tuesday morning in recognition of donors who have established an endowed scholarship fund and the student-athletes who are recipients of those scholarships.
This year's breakfast was at TD Arena in the McAlister Suite and included student-athletes from across many sports as well as representatives of their endowed fund.
Last year alone, endowed funds provided the College of Charleston Athletic Department with nearly $100,000, all of which support student-athlete scholarships. While all gifts are welcome and appreciated, the endowment program allows donors to have a lasting impact on CofC Athletics.
These gifts directly benefit Cougar student-athletes, and create a legacy that will support CofC Athletics now and in perpetuity. Individuals who choose to make endowment gifts are helping sustain the continuing excellence of CofC Athletics. An endowment gift represents a significant investment in the future, an investment that will enable many generations of student-athletes to achieve success on the fields of play, in the classroom, and in life after intercollegiate athletics.
For more information on the endowment program, please call the Cougar Club at 843-953-5472. Cougar student-athletes, coaches, and administrators appreciate your interest and support. We would like to say a special thanks to all those who were part of the 2012 Annual Endowment Breakfast.
