A Message from Director of Athletics Bill Moos:
Be a Member. Join the Team.
In order for Washington State Athletics to meet and exceed our potential on and off the field, we must have increased support of the Cougar Athletic Fund through annual memberships. The loyalty demonstrated by longtime members is much appreciated and has provided life changing opportunities for scores of young people who have competed as Cougars. However, our member base of roughly 6,000 is still in the bottom half of the Pac-12 and is the smallest of the four league schools in the northwest. Our average annual donation per donor is still nearly $1,000 below the conference average.
In short, we need help from Cougars everywhere in two fundamental ways: 1) If you are able, please consider increasing your annual contribution; and, 2) Help us recruit more Cougars to become members of the Cougar Athletic Fund. If just half our current CAF members could find just one new member, we would immediately exceed the conference average in terms of membership base.
Your membership in the CAF is critical and allows us to help fund student-athlete scholarships and other necessary support they need to compete in the Pac-12 Conference. Every donation, regardless of size, is meaningful and moves us closer to fully funding our ever-increasing scholarship costs.
As a member of the Cougar Athletic Fund, you are truly part of the team when you join the Cougar Athletic Fund. It is our hope that, as a CAF member, you feel a special sense of pride every time one of our sports programs competes for Washington State University. You are truly part of the team behind the team. Thank you in advance for helping your Cougars become the type of program of which we can all be very proud.
