Dear Cavalier Fans, Virginia Athletics enjoyed a terrific year in 2016. UVA ranked in the top 10 of athletics programs nationwide, an ac- complishment that is a direct reflection of those who support Virginia Athletics. As you will notice, our 2017 fundrais- ing materials are a little different from the traditional Membership Guide we have sent at the start of previous years. rough the All In For Excellence initia- tive, donor contributions impact the athletics program in so many ways. We felt using this format al- lowed for a more comprehensive presentation to show what your contribution means for the future of Virginia Athletics. is information outlines the All In For Excellence initiative and the many opportunities donors have to support student-athletes at the University of Virginia. e An- nual Fund remains the lifeblood of our program and is still the primary source to fund our schol- arships. We remain challenged to keep pace with increased tuition and full cost of attendance for all 316.6 scholarships allowed by the NCAA, which is why your continued Annual Fund commitment is so very important to our overall success. We understand that the benefits associ- ated with annual giving are important to many of our donors, so we've broken out this information into a separate guide for easy reference. Should you have any questions about the All In For Excel- lence initiative or donor benefits, please do not hesitate to call any member of our staff. For 2017, it will be important for our Annual Fund to grow, our donor base to expand, new scholarships to be en- dowed and progress to be made on op- erational and facility projects. We are so grateful for your support and hope we can count on you in 2017. Go 'Hoos, DIRK P. KATSTRA 19 A LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 2017 VAF GUIDE TO GIVING / 5
