Spring Kickoff 2021

Athletics Department Hosts Fundraising Event

The UFTL Athletics Department hosted a fundraising event on Friday, Apr. 9 to help mitigate the financial hardship brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re committed to giving our student-athletes the resources they need to be successful in competition and in the classroom,” Vice President of Athletics and Student Success Ernest T. Jones said. “Fundraising is imperative to properly support our student-athletes.”

Supporters were encouraged to donate $20.21 as part of the 2021 campaign, according to the fundraising advertisement.

“Like other college athletic programs around the country, UFTL has been hit hard during the pandemic,” Chancellor Dr. Henry Fernandez said. “We are asking you to give whatever you’re able to contribute.”

Jones added that Athletics officials are using an email campaign, social media, phone calls and word-of-mouth to connect with potential donors.
