Studies have shown that people donate because it makes them feel good. They donate toward their passion. As a Student Athlete Alum, your passion is most likely toward your sport and helping the current student-athletes succeed.
Three Pillars of Giving:
Pillar One: Time
- As a Binghamton University Athletics Student Athlete Alum, you have much to offer. Giving back to the university that gave you opportunities for growth, education and experience, feels good. You can be engaged with your fellow teammates, many whom you may not have connected with in years. It is important to share your traditions and your legacy as a Binghamton University Athlete. Giving of your time and experiences networking events, organizing alumni events in your area, or mentoring current student athletes offers you a chance to give back.
Pillar Two: Talent
- Think of the valuable lessons you have learned as a student athlete: leadership skills, teamwork, perseverance, work ethic. Also think of the experience you have gained since graduation in your personal and work life. What would you have liked to learn as a current student athlete? Come back and share your knowledge, help student athletes find internships or employment upon graduation; help them get connected through your professional networks. You can make a difference by sharing your talent.
Pillar Three: Treasure
- Wherever you are in your life's journey, you can give back. Whether it is to donate $50 each as a group of alum from your sport to help the current team purchase new uniforms, or perhaps giving of your "treasure" in the form of a yearly commitment to our scholarship fund. Your support is crucial to the continued success of the legacy that you were part of.
- We are reaching out to you today, asking for your help in finding you and your teammates.
- It is easy to join, just out the application today. You will immediately get connected.
- We care about you and value your contributions.
