On Nov. 1, 2018, the Virginia Athletics Foundation launched the Match The Mendenhalls giving program in response to Bronco and Holly Mendenhalls’ generous gift to the Football Operations Center as part of the new $180 million athletics master plan project.
Their $500,000 gift, made on Oct. 18, 2018, was the first major gift to the Football Operations Center and is the largest gift made by a Virginia head coach. The goal of the program was to have at least 500 donors commit at least $1,000 each by Nov. 23, 2018 to collectively match their $500,000 gift.
The program was incredibly successful as VAF raised $669,837 from 408 donors. Thank you to all the donors who participated.
Thanks to your generous donors, fundraising for the master plan is off to a great start. We still have a long way to go so please contact the Virginia Athletics Foundation at 800-626-8723 with any questions, to learn more about the master plan or to make your gift.
