"I don't think I can express how grateful I am for the Spider Club and its impact on my experience as a student-athlete. The donations given to the Spider Club each year help make my experience here at the University of Richmond truly special and unique. The generosity of the Spider Club helps fund our lacrosse team and helps us reach our ultimate goal of bringing the A-10 Championship back to the University."

"A fundamental part of a team's success depends on a supportive foundation. The Spider Club had a direct impact on our team's success this year and previous years. Their contributions enable student-athletes to receive the necessary equipment, practice facilities, and chartered flights to compete with the best in the country. Thanks to the Spider Club donations, our 2009-2010 University of Richmond men's basketball team was able to win the South Padre Invitational, earn second place at our conference tourney, and compete in the first round of the NCAA tournament. On behalf of our team, I would like to thank our Spider Club donors for making an impact on our team's success throughout my experience as a University of Richmond Spider."

"Donations made to the Spider Club have made an outstanding impact on our athletics here at the University of Richmond. The Spider Club supports us and thus allows us to receive all the equipment needed to compete at the highest level in Division I Athletics. The Spider Club's support helped us reach the A-10 Conference Championship this year as well as reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004. I look forward to the opportunity to give back to the Spider Club and support what has led to our success here at the University of Richmond."
