From recent DAF report:

Quote:
$500,000 for Women’s Lacrosse Scholarships: Completed
In the fall of 2016, our women’s lacrosse parents, alumnae and friends completed a $250,000 matching gift challenge in support on increasing our scholarships. The result of this challenge provides more than $500,000 in additional scholarship funds for Coach Kim Wayne and her staff to utilize on the recruiting trail.

$280,000 for Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving Scholarships: Completed
In August of 2017, our men’s & women’s swimming & diving parents, alumni and friends completed a scholarship matching gift challenge of their own. The challenge was set at $130,000, with a deadline of August 20, 2017. Thanks to the great work of our DAF staff and College Relations colleagues and the many donors who gave so generously to this effort, the goal was met and surpassed in mid-August.

$500,000 for Wresting Scholarships: In progress
This fall, we’re embarking on a brand new $250,000 matching gift challenge in support of wrestling and our new head coach, Andy Lausier. Our challengers are making their gift to establish a scholarship in honor of Professor Emeritus Gill Holland, a longtime supporter of the program and mentor to generations of Davidson wrestlers.

We will be looking to the Davidson wrestling community to get involved in a similar fashion to those who made our successes in lacrosse and swimming & diving possible. We’re very excited about the future of our wrestling program under Coach Lausier’s direction, and as we begin talking with donors about supporting this effort, we’re excited by their ability to have a direct impact on the program.

Great!

Women's lacrosse got an additional 2/5th of a scholarship to work with and wrestling the same, while swimming has an additional 1/5th scholarship to work with.


Man, do we have work to do.
