Coming March 15th or abouts the "Football Excellence Fund" will be announced. This is a new football only fund which will provide one-time and on-going support for the varsity football program at CU-Boulder. This will help pay for travel, furniture, fixtures, equipment, recruiting, capital projects, programing, entertaining, special projects, salaries and bonus awards for coaches. With this a new point system is being developed that will go into effect July 1st with our joining the Pac 12.This point system will not only be for season ticket holders and donors but for the people out of state who give to this fund. This will enable them to have priority with season ticket holders to get tics for Boulder games if they come into town but also for all our alumni in Pac 12 country to get priority tics for games in their area of the Pac 12. This fund is already taking donations but look for the official kick off around March 15th. There pushing the Football Excellence Fund now to gain some momentum for Jult 1st. The program was the brainchild of our California donors and alumni and will be presented there soon. It's going to be run through the Buff Club, but will be its own thing. Some of the big thrusts will be to increase recruiting budgets and coach salaries.
