About

The Cougar Challenge is Back!

While athletics certainly looks different this fall, all of our teams are training, conditioning, and participating in team-building and leadership activities safely together. And, each sport continues to have equipment, gear, and programming needs they would like to fulfill in order to prepare for a successful return when competition resumes. 

Last year, more than 1,700 donors contributed over $107,000 to Clark Athletics. 

The impact of the Challenge was felt by all of our student-athletes and coaches, who were able to purchase gear and equipment, cover team travel expenses, and so much more because of the generosity of our supporters.

This year, each team has a chance to get in on the competition. Any team that reaches 100 or more donors will split a pool of additional funds generously contributed by an anonymous alumni couple. (Donations of $5 or more will be counted towards the team donor total)

Spread the word by signing up to be a challenge advocate. Click on the “advocate” tab and easily share the information with your contacts through email and on social media so we’re able to reach even more Clarkies and athletic supporters!

Attention Donors!

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and support for our student-athletes!

Your generosity is so appreciated but we ask that you please refrain from using fake names and/or creating multiple transactions when making your gift. 

While every member of a household is welcome to make a gift (and will count towards donor totals) - multiple transactions per donor make it very difficult for our staff members at Clark who process these gifts.

Thank you again!

The Impact Of Last Year's Cougar Challenge

With the overwhelming support of our donors last year, all of our varsity teams were able to purchase new apparel, equipment, and so much more. Pictured above are just some of our teams wearing and using apparel and equipment purchased using funds from the 2019 Cougar Challenge.
