HISTORY OF
THE FOUNDATION

THEN

Over 60 years ago, The Brigadier Club funded the first scholarship for a cadet-athlete at The Citadel. Its 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 350 cadet-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

On behalf of more than 350 cadet-athletes, coaches, and staff, THANK YOU for your support of The Citadel Brigadier Foundation and The Citadel Athletics. We asked much of Bulldog Nation this past year, and you delivered during a time distinctly unique to our 180-year history. Whether purchasing cutouts, philanthropically donating your tickets, or stepping up financially through your gifts to TCBF, your generosity, and commitment to this institution serve as a constant reminder of how grateful, humbled, and proud I am to be a Bulldog. Because of you, we were able to continue our mission in providing opportunities for cadet-athletes to become principled leaders – centered on The Citadel’s core values of Honor, Duty, and Respect – and to succeed in the classroom, on the field, and in life.

Please do not hesitate to contact our staff with any questions about becoming a part of the TCBF Family! Our staff remains dedicated to ensuring a solid foundation for The Citadel Athletics Department for years to come, and you are the most important part of achieving that goal. While the relentless pursuit to provide a best-in-class experience for Bulldog Nation and for our cadet-athletes is never finished, we sincerely thank you for standing with us as we write the next chapter in our history.
