WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The end of the fiscal year for Wake Forest athletics is almost here, and the Deacon Club is only 247 members away from having the largest class in history!

June 30, 2014 is the donation deadline for the Deacon Club and all potential new members as well as those with outstanding pledge balances are encouraged to make their donation.

Over the past several weeks, the Deacon Club has been calling for Wake Forest alumni and supporters to invest in Demon Deacon athletics by making a donation to the Annual Fund. Deacon Club membership fees all go towards the Annual Fund, and 100 percent of these gifts are used to pay the University to cover the cost of student-athlete scholarships.

Currently, scholarship costs exceed $12 million and funds raised only cover about 62 percent of those costs (learn more about the annual fund here). The remaining money must be pulled from the department's operating budget, which negatively impacts all of our athletic programs.

By increasing donations to the Annual Fund, we will be able to dedicate more of our department's operating budget to things like recruiting, sports medicine and facilities. Not only does this help us ensure our current student-athletes are getting the best resources to help them succeed in their sport, it also helps our department recruit future Demon Deacon greats to our programs.

Above are two messages from Coach Manning and Coach Clawson explaining how the Deacon Club Annual Fund impacts their programs. We hope you will be able to join us by committing to the Deacon Club!
