Bronco Athletic Fund Introduced

Updated: Sept. 19, 2017

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Plans have been finalized for the inaugural Bronco Athletic Fund Stampede Events.

Santa Clara Athletics has set up 10 meet-and-greet events along the West Coast that will take place through October.

Bronco fans will have an opportunity to mingle and hear from a number of coaches, along with director of athletics Renee Baumgartner who heads into her third year.

Baumgartner and/or members of the staff will also be in attendance to discuss the Bronco Athletic Fund, an annual giving platform debuted this summer, which allows donors to support the athletic programs they are most passionate. The new model consolidates aspects of fundraising for athletics and provides valuable and necessary support to our 360 student-athletes.

The Bronco Athletic Fund was initiated to help streamline donations to aid the advancement of the school's 20 NCAA Division I sports.

Annual fund members have the option to support Santa Clara Athletics through any of the following ways:

• Athletics Excellence Fund
• Bronco Bench Foundation
• Men's Basketball Seat Related Giving
• Capital Fund
