The Pioneer Movement is the annual giving fund for the University of Denver - Division of Athletics and Recreation. It is designed to support our 17 Division I varsity sports and all recreation programs, while providing the division with maximum annual financial flexibility.
The D-Club was re-launched to engage and reconnect all past and present Pioneer Letterwinners in the proud tradition of being a Denver Pioneer. Our collective experiences wearing the crimson and gold have provided us a strong foundation for success. We must continue to carry on that unwavering Pioneer Spirit for generations to come.
The D-Club's $18.67 membership fee is then directed to endowing a scholarship (The D-Club Alumni Scholarship Fund - with each $50,000 raised, we can award an additional scholarship.)
Pioneers Reinvesting in Denver Excellence is a fund that was developed several years ago as another avenue for student-athletes to show their "pride" in their team, program and athletic department through a financial contribution. The commitment is not about the amount given, but showing your fellow Pioneers that you are united as one team of student-athletes who are driven to make this Division of Athletics and Recreation and University a better place. During the 2015-16 season every DU student-athlete made a donation marking the 5th consecutive year with 100% student-athlete participation.
Are contributions made by Employees within the Division of Athletics and Recreation back to the University. Our employees have embraced the Pioneer Spirit and have chosen to support all areas within the University including Athletics and Recreation. The 2015-2016 fiscal years marks the 5th consecutive year with 100% participation.
