Greenville Clemson Club Supports University Priorities

by -

CLEMSON -- For the second time this year, the Greenville Clemson Club has made a major financial commitment in support of a University priority.

On Aug. 10, the club fulfilled a $25,000 pledge, made last spring, for the Palmetto Challenge, a fund-raising initiative to help Clemson qualify for matching funds from the state to endow faculty positions associated with economic development in South Carolina.

In addition, the club made a $10,000 payment on a pledge of $50,000 for the WestZone project, the cornerstone of Clemson's efforts to transform Memorial Stadium into one of the most innovative and inviting stadiums in the nation and to create state-of-the-art facilities that will make the Tigers more competitive for top-ranked student-athletes and coaches.

“We are proud to be able to make this second major contribution this year,” said Wil Brasington, immediate past president of the Greenville Clemson Club and a 2000 Clemson alumnus. “We hope our club will be just the first of many Clemson Clubs and other Clemson constituent groups that will step up to help the University in priority areas such as these.

“There are many ways to show support for Clemson, and we think Clemson Clubs in particular should be a go-to point for mobilizing Clemson people when there is a need to be met and a goal to accomplish.”

There are 50 Clemson Clubs around the nation serving Clemson’s 104,000 alumni. More than 12,000 Clemson alumni live in Greenville County.

Activities sponsored by the Greenville Clemson Club include an annual golf tournament that, along with gifts from individuals and businesses, funds club operations and provides contributions to the University.
