“The PAF has benefitted me in so many ways as a student-athlete. They have provided the athletes with so many different resources that help us with our success not only in our sports, but also in our academics. I love how they are constantly coming up with different ways to support us as athletes, such as getting us iPads as well as supplying us with a couple meals throughout the week. As a student athlete, I feel that the PAF really strives to do everything in their power to take care of me as best as they can.”
– Kenna Ramey, Women’s Swimming, Junior

About the Fund Drive
The PAF is an integral part of the well-rounded collegiate experience created for each one of the coaches and student-athletes that is enabled through the contributions provided by the Fund Drive. The Fund Drive is a 6-week fundraising effort to raise funds for student-athlete scholarships and enhancements for all 18 NCAA Division 1 Intercollegiate athletics sport programs under the leadership of the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF).
The PAF joins together with the support of hundreds of generous donors and loyal volunteers who rise together in support of the Athletic Department’s vision for its coaches and student-athletes. The efforts of our staff, volunteers, and donors during this time provides opportunities for our student-athletes, but also provides opportunities for everyone involved to become connected to the community while building for the future. The generous donations received during the Fund Drive continue to strengthen our team competitiveness in athletics while providing our student-athletes with the well-rounded college experience that they deserve.
The strength of the Fund Drive has a tremendous impact on the lives of our student-athletes and coaches having become a key pillar of our success in supporting the mission of the University of the Pacific Athletics Program. Thanks to all of our generous donors during our annual Fund Drive, the PAF has been able to raise funding for academic scholarships, academic support, enhanced recruiting and video analysis software, improved weight training technology powered by Sparta Performance, additional marketing, additional sport-specific staffing, and construction of multiple sport-specific facilities through our past Fund Drive efforts. The involvement of our community support during this time is invaluable to the university in its efforts to connect with the community while continuing a tradition of excellence.
