University of New Mexico Athletics is pleased to announce the launch of the Lobo Club’s “Drive to 5,000.” The purpose of this campaign is to grow Lobo Club membership to an all-time high and put the University of New Mexico at the top of the Mountain West Conference in athletics fundraising. “Our annual scholarship cost is one of the largest expenses that the Athletics Department incurs,” said Paul Krebs, Vice President for Athletics at UNM. “The money that Lobo Club members donate to the Lobo Scholarship Fund is so important for the continued growth and success of Lobo Athletics, and we cannot continue to compete at a championship level without the support of our Lobo Club members.”
In an effort to increase donations and expand our memberships to 5,000 by the end of 2014, the Lobo Club has developed a “Drive to 5,000” campaign video and redesigned its website: www.UNMLoboClub.com. The website now includes new features such as a scrolling Twitter feed, a current membership ticker, updated maps and ticket/parking request forms, mobile capability and an enhanced online giving portal to make donating as easy as possible.
There are currently over 4,200 members of the Lobo Club – the Gateway to Giving for UNM Athletics – who make tax-deductible contributions of $50 or more annually. These members raise approximately $3 million per year in community based support that goes to offset the total cost of student-athlete scholarships at UNM, which is projected to be $4.3 million this upcoming year. UNM is currently #2 in the Mountain West in total members behind Wyoming and #4 in scholarship fund dollars raised behind UNLV, San Diego State, and Boise State.
