From UAB Athletics:
IGNITE is an initiative to increase the Blazer Boosters membership base, fortify a foundation for continued financial growth, and position UAB Athletics to compete at the highest level of college athletics. Investing in Blazer student-athletes by becoming a member of Blazer Boosters will IGNITE the future success of the UAB Department of Athletics.
“We want to be the best at everything that we do. We have three Core Values in UAB Athletics. We want to Compete for Championships, Graduate with Honors, and Make a Difference,” stated Director of Athletics Mark Ingram. “To accomplish these goals, we must also win off the field by properly supporting our coaches and student-athletes.”
In order to track the momentum of the IGNITE campaign, UAB has created benchmarks consisting of peer metropolitan institutions in hopes of surpassing these schools one by one in total donors to the athletic department. The first two schools on the list are UTSA and Charlotte with 1,965 and 2,000 total donors in 2017 respectively. The complete list, along with all other information about the campaign, can be found by visiting UABIgnite.com.
