Duke Club Extends Paint The Nation Purple Campaign Through August
Courtesy:JMUSports.com Release:08/12/2013

HARRISONBURG, Va. - On July 1, the Duke Club, the athletic fundraising arm of James Madison University athletics, kicked off its Paint the Nation Purple campaign, aimed at securing a member from all fifty states.  Through July, the Duke Club welcomed members from five unrepresented states, including Alabama, Alaska, Mississippi, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.  With this success, the Duke Club extended Paint the Nation Purple through August in hopes of reaching the final thirteen unrepresented states. Within two days of extending the campaign, the Duke Club welcomed new members from Hawaii and Idaho with the latest additions being Oregon and Oklahoma.

“We are proud to have donors supporting our cause from 39 states right now,” Brian Powell, Director of the Annual Fund, said.  “I think it’s a testament to the passion of our alumni base around the country, and signifies the importance of athletics in helping JMU connect with the masses.”

The campaign will end August 31, the day of the of home football opener. 

“Our hope at that point is to have at least one representative from all fifty states and proudly boast that we are truly everywhere," Powell continued. "For those states already represented, we hope our constituents in those locations will take pride in making their state a darker shade of purple, which indicates more donors from those states.”
