ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

DONORS ARE
OUR LIFEBLOOD.

 

Since 1949, Brigadier Foundation members have made a major impact on the success of the Citadel Bulldogs. In the classroom and in athletic competition, the accomplishments and accolades of our cadet-student-athletes would not be possible without you – the team behind the team!

HISTORY OF
THE FOUNDATION

old-C

THEN

Over 60 years ago, The Brigadier Club funded the first scholarship for a cadet-student-athlete at The Citadel. It’s mission was to help provide scholarship monies to a small athletics department in Charleston, SC whose teams had yet to win a championship in any sport.

NOW

Assistance is provided to approximately 225 cadet-student-athletes. Because no state monies are received in the Athletic Department’s budget for scholarship aid, the money raised by The Citadel Brigadier Foundation is critical to the Bulldogs fielding competitive teams throughout the year.

Background
A MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

RUSSELL FRIERSON

Thank you for considering joining the Brigadier Foundation.  Your generosity will enhance the lives of our nearly 250 cadet-student-athletes on every team by providing an opportunity for them to win in the classroom, on the field, and in life.

Our cadet-student-athletes are incredibly thankful for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend The Citadel and compete as a Bulldog. Once they graduate, they hope to do everything they can to pass along the high ideals that have been instilled in them while here.  Your donations will do more than just shape our cadet-athletes; they will change lives and influence generations of individuals who will demonstrate and embody the true meaning of this institution.
