MAKING A GREATER IMPACT


The “8-Clap for 8K” initiative has a goal of increasing members of the Wooden Athletic Fund to 8,000 from the 5,313 at the outset of the campaign. As progress is made, it will be measured by “clapping” for each 1,000 donors who join, leading up to the goal of 8,000 donors, or, a UCLA 8-Clap. Throughout the 8CLAP8K campaign, special incentives will be offered to new members and to current WAF members who refer friends to join.
