Are you socially responsible? Donate to JU Athletics!
With more than 2,000 fans on Facebook and more than 1,500 followers on Twitter, JU is asking each of its fans and followers to donate a minimum of $10 online to the campaign that will go directly to support the student-athletes.
Each donation gives the donor membership into the JU Athletics Association, which is the fund raising arm of JU Athletics. Thanks to the JUAA’s support, the Dolphins have been able to claim 37 conference titles in the last seven seasons.
There will be weekly prizes and every 53rd person making a donation will receive an autograph poster by JU legend Artis Gilmore.
“This is a unique way for our fans to contribute to our program and help us continue to succeed at the highest level,” said JU director of athletics Alan Verlander. “If everyone that is a fan of ours on social media makes a small donation, it can make a major impact on the lives of our student-athletes. We want to sustain winning in the classroom and playing surface and this campaign will aid in that effort!"
