Make a donation to support the Wildcats!
The Western Nevada College Foundation debuts a new concept for the annual athletics fundraiser this year....a ‘non-event’. Due to significant budget cuts, 2011-2012 is a critical year for WNC’s self-supported athletics program, and the Foundation needs to raise $215,000 to meet the travel and operating budgets for the Wildcats baseball and softball teams this year.
By hosting a non-event, the Foundation is able to put 100% of donor contributions directly toward the WNC baseball and softball programs instead of covering event costs, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
Tongue-in-cheek ‘non-event’ invitations to past supporters encourage them NOT to attend the Western Nevada College Wildcats Athletics Fundraiser, which will NOT take place on December 31, 2011. The invitation includes a bit of light humor, stating that “When the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, we won’t be there and we hope you won’t either! Please don’t dress up or hire a babysitter. You won’t need to brave inclement weather, buy new event attire, eat rich food that isn’t part of your New Year’s resolution, or pay for drinks at a cash bar. Our holiday gift to you is to celebrate New Year’s Eve in your own style, while helping WNC Athletics."
All contributions to the non-event will help the college continue the student life initiatives that have helped make WNC more attractive to traditional college age students, and they will support WNC student-athletes - exemplary students with a graduation/transfer rate above 90 percent.
A list of donation benefits is also available so supporters can see just how their gift will benefit the teams. For more information, call the WNC Foundation at 445-3240 or view the invitation below.
