Long Beach State Giving Reaches New Heights With I'm In Campaign

Jan. 11, 2018

Long Beach, Calif. - A targeted giving campaign implemented by the Long Beach State Development Staff has culminated in a new fundraising benchmark being reached throughout the Athletics Department Staff, with 100% of Long Beach State Athletics Staff having participated in the campaign benefiting the Beach Athletic Club for the 2017-18 season.

"Being a collegiate athlete is an experience that transforms our student-athlete's lives," said Senior Associate Athletics Director Wayne Stickney. "Our coaches and staff are in a profession where we all strive to participate in the betterment of this experience. The "I'm In" Campaign, more than anything, is a moral victory for our department because it tells the rest of the world that our coaches and staff support this program financially. We thank our Beach Family for caring to make a difference and look forward to recruiting more alumni and friends to join the Beach Athletic Club."

Long Beach State's 350-plus student-athletes continue to be the focus of this effort, which saw a record-number of athletics staff pledging that "I'm in" to support Beach student-athletes not just through their everyday employment but also agreeing to financially support those efforts with a gift towards the Beach Athletic Club.

The Beach Athletic Club is a group of alumni and friends of Long Beach State who recognize the value of the student-athlete experience. Donations to the Beach Athletic Club generate funding for student-athlete scholarships, capital projects and facility improvements, and the enhancement of sport specific operating budgets.
