Working with the sport supervisor and athletics director, Dean and Markel Families Men’s Head Basketball Coach Tony Bennett works to identify operational needs that arise outside of the program’s annual budget. These may include foreign tours, training trips and specialized equipment. When these needs arise, Coaches 10 funds provide a way for donors to support these specific initiatives.

While not tied to donor benefits, Coaches 10 gifts count toward the lifetime giving portion of priority point calculations and are a way for donors to support the programs they are passionate about above and beyond their Annual Fund contributions.
