Sun Devil Club Young Professionals Group Uses Membership Growth To Affect Positive Change Across Department
The Sun Devil Club Young Professionals Group (YPG) has a lot to be proud of over the past year. As of June 2017, the group officially had four dues-paying members, which requires an annual philanthropic donation of $300. Fast forward one year, and the group sits at 88 dues-paying members.
In addition to vastly expanding its membership base, YPG positively impacted Sun Devil Athletics and Sun Devil student-athletes in a variety of ways this past year. The group donated $12,500 to support Sun Devil Football student-athletes through the creation of the Young Professionals Group Endowment, which through the Sun Devil Matching Gift Program doubled to $25,000. YPG also donated more than $4,000 to the Sun Devil Hockey program to help them with branding and graphics for their offices, made a gift to the Sun Devil Women’s Soccer program, and hosted the fifth annual Devils’ Ball, which raised nearly $30,000 for YPG and the Sun Devil Club.
None of these accomplishments and wide-ranging influences would have been possible without each individual YPG member, so Sun Devil Athletics and the Sun Devil Club owes a big thank you to everyone who is a part of the group. The future of YPG is bright and the Sun Devil Club is excited to see what the group can do in the upcoming year!
