The College of Charleston Cougar Club has been renamed the College of Charleston Athletic Fund (CAF). The name change is effective immediately.
The College of Charleston Athletic Fund will function as the overarching umbrella under which all giving to athletics will occur. The organization will focus additional emphasis on philanthropic giving – including sport-specific donations, facility initiatives and endowment opportunities – that will enhance and elevate the student-athlete experience at CofC.
The Cougar Club will remain a branch of the newly-created College of Charleston Athletic Fund, serving as the annual scholarship fund, which supports the scholarship needs for over 350 student-athletes across CofC’s 19 varsity sports. All membership benefits such as premium seating, hospitality access, parking, etc., are still secured through an annual contribution to The Cougar Club.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our many donors for their past and continued support of the Athletics Department,” says Jerry Baker, executive director of the College of Charleston Athletic Fund. “The CofC Athletic Fund opens up potential for a new era of philanthropic giving to support our student-athletes.”
