ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Did you know that you can join the Lobo Club and make a difference in the lives of UNM student-athletes for only $5 per month?  The Lobo Club, the Gateway to Giving for UNM Athletics, has launched its “$5 for 5,000” initiative to encourage alumni and fans to join the Lobo Club at the $50 level by making a $5 donation over the next ten months to the Lobo Scholarship Fund.

This new initiative is part of the Lobo Club’s “Drive to 5,000” – which kicked off in 2013 and concludes on June 30, 2015.  This two-year drive is designed to increase the membership of the Lobo Club to an all-time high of 5,000 – which would put UNM at the top of the Mountain West Conference in total donors.

For only $5 a month for the next 10 months, you can join the Lobo Club and become one of the 5,000.  Lobo Club members impact over 450 student-athletes while they strive for diplomas and compete for championships. “A scholarship to UNM was a dream come true,” stated Sammi Stevens, a former Women’s Golfer who recently earned her degree in Political Science. “This experience tremendously impacted my life and has set me up to be successful in the future. Without the support I received from Lobo Club members, I would not be where I am today.”

To participate in the “$5 for 5,000” initiative and start making a difference today, contact Lauren Adee at 505-925-5600 or lauren.adee@unmfund.org.  The deadline for this new program is September 30th.

The Lobo Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that raises funds for the University of New Mexico Athletics Department. Last year, the 4,490 members of the Lobo Club contributed over $11.5 million to UNM Athletics. Find out more about the Lobo Club by visiting www.UNMLoboClub.com.
