“My motivation in making a [principal] gift was really to underwrite, as a lot of other competitive teams do, the well-being of our athletes. We have to deliver a community around our athletes, allowing them to specialize in their performance and giving them the peace of mind that they can perform at the highest level without fear of finances or the future.” – Steven M.
