Fellow Bishops Fan,
As our coaches and staff begin preparations for the 2015-2016 athletics season, I’d like to take this opportunity to enlist your support for our North Carolina Wesleyan Battling Bishops Club. The BBC is the primary fundraising organization for the Department of Athletics, and it aims to provide our teams with direct financial support above and beyond our standard operating budget.
We understand that the success of our athletics program depends upon the dedication of our staff, the passion of our student-athletes and the support of our alumni, parents and fans. Last year, our athletic teams captured a pair of USA South Regular Season and Tournament Championships and made two NCAA appearances. Individually, we had three student-athletes garner All-American honors, while 41 earned All-Conference accolades. Most impressively, our student-athletes were equally as successful in the classroom as we had a program-record 93 Bishops named to the USA South Academic All-Conference team. Much of this would not have been possible without BBC support!
With the new season approaching, we once again anticipate great things from our student-athletes. As always, we will strive to promote our 4C philosophy of character development, classroom success, community involvement and competitive excellence; but now, more than ever, we need your help to succeed in this mission.
Our BBC members play a vital role in helping our programs fulfill their most immediate and pressing needs. Your tax deductible donation can be designated directly to the team/program of your choice or to the department as a whole, and as an individual member, you will receive a membership card that gives you free admission to all Wesleyan athletic events (excluding post-season tournaments). Other perks include BBC promotional items and e-mail updates, while our corporate members receive opportunities for signage and advertisement.
I encourage to you take time to view our BBC brochure by clicking here. With a variety giving options, I and my staff hope you will become an integral part of our athletic success by joining today! For more information, please contact our Coordinator of Internal Operations Martha Proctor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-985-5213 .
With sincere thanks,
Vice President and Director of Athletics
