UTC Hosts "Mocs Give Day" October 5

Wednesday, September 22, 2021
The Chattanooga Mocs athletics programs rely on the support of Mocs Club donors for scholarships and operations. That fund-raising arm allows for continued excellence both regionally and nationally. That showed this past week with the football program’s narrow 28-23 loss to SEC leading Kentucky and women’s golf tying for third against a strong field at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate topping SEC, ACC and Big 12 competition.

The next big step is “Mocs Give Day” on Tuesday, Oct. 5. It’s a University-wide day of giving.
The Mocs Club is focused on its 1500 Mocs campaign which is an effort to increase Mocs Club membership to 1,500 by 2022. That number further cements the foundation of the group’s impact on all 300+ student-athletes at the institution. 

The Mocs look to better their 2020 numbers. More than $125,000 was raised a year ago in the inaugural day of giving led by leadership gifts by basketball head coaches Katie Burrows and Lamont Paris along with Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Mark Wharton. That trio led an effort of 268 donors making a difference in student-athlete lives.

The Mocs Club looks to reach new heights in the 1500 Mocs Campaign through Mocs Give Day considering there are more than 50,000 alums spread across Tennessee and Georgia. Private donor support is the driving force behind the department providing resources necessary for all Mocs teams continued excellence in competition, in the classroom and in the community. The Mocs Club set an aggressive goal for Mocs Give Day. That is to raise $100,000 and add 100 new Mocs Club members. In simple terms, that $100,000 provides three full scholarships. 

Through the 1500 Mocs Campaign, there are multiple ways to participate in Mocs Give Day. That includes a matching gift program along with raffle giveaways, giving challenges and other ways to impact the everyday lives of student-athletes.

Donors don’t have to wait for Oct. 5. Commitments can be pledged here to get the ball in play. For more information on Mocs Give Day and the 1500 Mocs Campaign, contact the Mocs Club at (423) 425-4233 or email MocsClub@utc.edu.
