Student-Athletes Thank Donors at Annual TAF Event

BATON ROUGE, LA- On Monday, April 24 and Tuesday, April 25, Tiger Athletic Foundation (TAF) held its annual Thank-A-Thon.  Student-athletes and support staff volunteered their time to make phone calls to TAF donors.  A record number of 105 student-athletes participated in the annual event, and made 2000 calls to TAF donors.

Student-athlete participation is voluntary.  Many of the student-athletes participating enjoy having the opportunity to personally thank TAF donors for their generosity and for the educational and athletic opportunities they received as a result of that support.

“Nothing is more impactful for donors than to hear directly from the student-athletes who benefit from the programs and scholarships they support,” said Courtney Albritton, TAF Director of Donor Relations and Stewardship.

Tiger Athletic Foundation members impact all 21 varsity sports of the LSU Athletic Department.  The annual Thank-A-Thon is one of the many efforts to engage and steward donors throughout the year.
