PORTLAND, Ore. - Pioneer athletics is excited to bring you the second annual Development Spirit Week through the Orange&Black. This five-day series highlights the generosity of others, the impact of donor support on the athletics programs at Lewis & Clark, and the involvement of our student-athletes in the community, both on campus and in the greater Portland area.
As costs of running an athletics department rise, Lewis & Clark continues to depend on donor support through the Pioneer Athletics Club (PAC) to allow for life-changing opportunities for our student-athletes. You can see in the list below that gifts of all sizes directly support our efforts, and your contribution says that you believe in Pioneer athletics and are proud to be a member of the Pioneer family.
