At Lewis & Clark, sports play an important part in the lives of our student-athletes. These activities provide students with opportunities to learn outside the classroom and develop as human beings. The Pioneer Athletics Club (PAC) helps create meaningful opportunities for our students to succeed.

PAC works to maintain relationships with former student-athletes and to cultivate relationships with alumni, parents, and friends of the Lewis & Clark. This member-supported society raises support for all of our 350 student-athletes and 19 NCAA Division III varsity sports teams. By joining PAC, you show your support for the important educational values students learn through intercollegiate participation and competition.

Why Should I Get Involved?

We continually strive to improve facilities and annual funding at Lewis & Clark so that our teams can compete at the highest level. The college has been very supportive in covering basic expenses for travel, uniforms, and equipment. However, there are always areas in which additional support will enhance students’ experiences and opportunities for success. Gifts to the PAC provide the much-needed annual support to supplement our teams’ annual budgets.

Where Will My Contributions Go?

All gifts to Athletics are used to support our teams and programs. Specific needs vary from year to year, but the primary areas supported by Pioneer Athletics Club include services and facility improvements as well as equipment purchases that are not otherwise funded. Computers, weight room equipment, public address systems, scoreboards, and many other amenities for our student-athletes have been made possible thanks to PAC memberships.

Can I Support A Specific Program?

Yes! While unrestricted gifts provide the most flexibility in supporting our highest-priority needs and projects, restricted gifts directly benefit the designated team or program. Any amount can be designated and restricted to a specific team or teams.

Business Opportunities

Your business can support Pioneer Athletics through any of our various sponsorship opportunities. We can also tailor a custom sponsorship package to meet your needs and budget. Sponsorships include print, internet, and radio exposure in addition to other special marketing opportunities.
