UW-PARKSIDE: Athletic director Andrew Gavin announced Monday in a press release the creation of the Ranger Impact Fund, which will become the primary fundraising arm for the university’s athletic department.
Those who support the Ranger Impact Fund will be helping the only NCAA Division II athletic program in Wisconsin, the press release said, and will help increase the “visibility and reputation in the community, state and region,” the release said.
“The Ranger Impact Fund and its success are critical to Parkside athletics as we strive to support the needs of our student-athletes, both in and out of competition,” Gavin was quoted as saying in the release.
Those who donate through the Ranger Impact Fund, the release said, can give to the general athletics fund, the scholarship fund, or 100 percent of a gift can be designated to a specific sport program, the release said.
