The Catamount Club Greek Challenge is designed to allow alumni to celebrate the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood that span the decades at WCU, while also helping continue the mission to generate scholarship support for Catamount Athletics.
The last 10 years the Catamount Club has set new fundraising records due in large part to the overwhelming success of the Greek Challenge. In recent years over 50% of the annual scholarship fund is donated by Greek alumni. We would not be able to continually surpass our goal if it were not for the transformational generosity of the entire Greek Community!
As we look to the future, we plan on continuing to break records, but we cannot do this without your help. The Greek Challenge plays a vital role in impacting our student-athletes as well as spreading the Catamount Club message. With the bonds that fraternities and sororities hold, the Greek Challenge is a perfect avenue to engage new Catamount fans and connect them with what we are building in Cullowhee.
As this year’s Challenge progresses, the Catamount Club ask you to reach out to your network of brothers and sisters and encourage them to get involved and make a difference in the future of WCU Athletics.
Greek Alumni make a tremendous impact for WCU Athletics. With your help, we can reach our goal of 675 donors participating in the Catamount Club Greek Challenge.
