Nearly 1,400 generous, alumni, letterwinners, and friends gave in support of Rice's 350 student-athletes and 16 varsity programs in Fiscal Year 2017. The generosity of our donors enables Rice student-athletes to grow as individuals and leaders through academic rigor and athletic competition, preparing them to become champions in whatever career they choose to pursue after graduation. As we move forward with our efforts to achieve the New Vision for Rice Athletics, continuing to grow the Owl Club in both members and dollars raised will be critical if we are to reach our full potential and elevate our program to a place of broadly recognized excellence and distinction.
The Owl Club is an important component of a comprehensive revenue strategy that includes a partnership with the university to continue its significant funding of our varsity sports programs. In addition to university assistance and growing the Owl Club, Rice Athletics is dedicated to enhancing other primary revenue streams such as ticket sales, sponsorships, athletic endowment and NCAA/conference revenues. Pursuing these objectives will provide critical resources that will better position our coaches, student-athletes and programs for competing for Conference USA championships and top 25 finishes.
