Pacific Construction President, Wilson Yu feels that sponsoring the Orange & Black Ball is a great way for him to give back to the community and help Pacific student-athletes.
“Over the years I have built relationships with many of the coaches in the department and have familiarized myself with their sports. I have grown to learn and understand the various challenges they face in order for their programs to be successful. As my relationships with them grow, I’m motivated to do whatever I can to help them compete at the highest level.” -Wilson Yu, Pacific Construction President
A named endowment can be established with a minimum of $50,000 and designated for a specific sport or purpose. To fully endow an athletics scholarship, a gift of more than $1,000,000 is necessary to generate the $53,000 necessary to cover the annual cost of tuition, room/board and books for a student-athlete. A gift of $2,000,000 will endow a coaching position, the highest honor that can be bestowed by an athletics department.
PAF Fund Drive
The PAF is currently looking for dedicated fans to participate in the PAF Fund Drive. Volunteers are needed to help ask for donations to support Pacific Athletics, which is integral to the success of the PAF’s primary mission of securing cash and gifts-in-kind.
