Subject: Another example

I have been donating to several CC teams for many years. I usually get an email or text from those coaches thanking me for my donation. I have never received such from a men’s basketball associate since Reggie’s been here. Below is the letter I received from women’s lacrosse coach Allison Daley.
Dear James,

As we turn the page on the 2020 calendar year, we are also turning the page on our fundraising efforts. Our Come Together Fundraising Campaign was a great success, thanks in large part to supporters like you. Since the launch of our campaign on October 15, 121 donors contributed in raising $15,790 for the Canisius Women’s Lacrosse program. This money is necessary in helping us strive for our standard of excellence both on and off the field.

I am so appreciative of all of the gifts made to our program this semester, but I am not the only one. Our 35 student athletes understand what is required to successfully play a 2021 spring season. Because of this, we worked incredibly hard to stay diligent in our preparation methods this offseason. I am proud of the discipline and determination our student athletes displayed during this incredibly difficult semester. Our team would not be in a position to compete without gifts like yours to the Canisius Women’s Lacrosse program.

Thank you for your help and support of our team. We look forward to having you at our games again, and we are excited to get back on the field to prove to all of our fans that everyday is a great day to be a Griffs Women’s Lacrosse fan!

Thank you again, and Go Griffs!

Head Coach Allison Daley

If you aren't winning 20 games annually, not winning conference championships, you HAVE to interact with fans. Honestly, the fan engagement and two degrees in four years story are how Parrotta stayed at Canisius so long.

I have the same story to tell. Never a thank you note from any MBB coaches Arrogance? Entitllement?
Or simply ungrateful for a fan’s fiinancial support? Disgusting display

Words matter and taking the time to express gratefulness / appreciation helps to make a more meaningful connection. Go Griffs!

CNY GRIFF- I get the same type of thank you and appreciation from Men's Lacrosse. In email form and an actual signed note from players in the mail.

BTW - both head coaches are former Griff athletes. They get it.
