PAF Finishes Five-Year Plan with $1.1 Million Increase
With the completion of the Athletic Department Five-Year Plan (2013-2017) this spring, the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF) is proud to announce a cumulative increase of $1.1 million dollars in cash donations. The five-year amount raised - $1,918,467- was a 144% increase as from the previous five years (2008-2012), when the PAF raised $784,861.

In 2011, the Pacific Athletics Department released a strategic five-year plan. As part of the plan, the Athletics Annual Fund was given a set of goals, which included increasing the net cash donations by $50,000 per year – growing the overall annual fundraising total from $142,000 in 2012 to over $450,000 by the end of 2017.
