Mean Green Scholarship Fund Launches Soar With More

June 1, 2018


DENTON - North Texas Athletics on Friday launched the Soar With More referral program, a month-long campaign to increase participation in the Mean Green Scholarship Fund.

Running June 1-30, the referral program rewards current MGSF members who recruit new donors to make a gift in support of North Texas student-athletes. The Mean Green Scholarship Fund provides annual scholarship and program support for all UNT student-athletes and each of North Texas' 16 intercollegiate athletic teams.

"We are experiencing record success across the board, and the annual support we receive from MGSF donors is a big piece of that success," North Texas Vice President For Intercollegiate Athletics and Director of Athletics Wren Baker said. "That said, it's imperative we continue to grow our donor base and provide our student-athletes with the resources needed to compete."

Boasting a strong alumni base, North Texas Athletics ranks near the bottom in number of athletic donors and annual-fund contributions when compared to peer institutions in Conference USA and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. To be counted as a new member, the account cannot have Mean Green Scholarship Fund (formerly the Mean Green Club) gifts between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.
