RICHMOND, Va. – Since the start of the 2012-13 athletic calendar, no athletic department in the Commonwealth of Virginia has won at a higher rate than VCU. In addition to the on-field success, the 270-plus student-athletes posted the best academic year in program history.
Those accomplishments don’t happen without the loyal support of VCU Athletics’ fundraising arm, the Ram Athletic Fund. With over 2,000 members of the Ram Athletic Fund and over 1,500 Rowdy Rams, the support for the Black & Gold is bigger than ever.
The support of the Ram Athletic Fund continues to enhance not only the lives of our student-athletes, but the entire VCU community. Athletics can be a tremendous avenue to connect alumni, parents and friends of VCU. The quest for championships and student-athlete development begins with the support of the Ram Athletic Fund.
Today, VCU Athletics kicks off Ram Athletic Fund Appreciation Week, spending the entire week focused on recognizing all the support the RAF gives to the Rams. Throughout the week, there will be daily giveaways, features on various aspects of athletics fundraising, donor profiles and statements from student-athletes and coaches on the impact of Ram Athletic Fund on their experience.
