Since 1970, the Pacific Athletic Foundation (PAF) has provided valuable scholarship and operational support for Pacific student-athletes thanks to donations from hundreds of loyal and generous donors each and every year. The PAF is a fundraising support organization for the Pacific Athletic Department that serves as a liaison between Pacific Athletics and the community.
The mission of the PAF is to (1) raise funds and generate revenue for the PAF Impact Fund, which is strategically used for program enhancements and sport-specific operations supporting all 18 athletic programs and (2) provide membership benefits, communication, and services for all PAF donors and PAF premium ticket holders to Pacific Athletics. Depending on one’s support level, each donor and premium ticket holder is eligible to receive exciting PAF membership benefits, such as game day hospitalities, access to exclusive events, preferred parking, and more.
The PAF is dedicated to providing the funds necessary for each of Pacific’s 18 intercollegiate athletics teams in order to be competitive every year and pursue conference championships. Your thoughtful and generous support of the PAF is greatly appreciated and makes a difference in the experience of every student-athlete attending University of the Pacific.
Thank you, and Go Tigers!

WHY SHOULD I GIVE TO THE PACIFIC ATHLETIC FOUNDATION AND HOW WILL MY DONATION BE USED?
Every gift to the PAF is important as we strive to build our programs, raise support for our student athletes, and win championships. Your donation will be used to support team specific operations and program enhancements.
HOW DO I GET GOOD SEATS FOR MEN’S BASKETBALL GAMES AND HOW AM I GUARANTEED THE SAME SEATS?
The best seats to attend Men’s Basketball games are located in the PAF Sections (H, I, or J) and floor level. The PAF Premium Ticket Package begins at $325/seat to every men’s home game. PAF Premium Ticket Packages on the floor begin at $750/seat to every men’s home game. PAF Premium Ticket Package members receive the first opportunity to guarantee the same seats or upgrade locations once they become a member.
HOW DO I RECEIVE ACCESS TO THE PRE-GAME AND IN-GAME HOSPITALITY AREAS?
All PAF Premium Ticket Package holders have the option to include pre-game hospitality passes into their package for an additional $500/ticket. In-game hospitality is only available to PAF Premium Ticket Package holders located on the floor level.
WILL MY DONATION BE A CHARITABLE GIFT?
All gifts to the PAF support Pacific's student-athletes. Please be aware, however, that as of January 1, 2018, a contribution that involves the right to purchase tickets for seating at our athletic events is not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Please consult your tax advisor for further information.
CAN I DECLINE BENEFITS?
Yes. Donors may request that no goods or benefits be received in exchange for donations to make your gift a fully charitable contribution.
MY MAJOR CONCERN IS NOT BENEFITS, BUT WHERE MY SEASON TICKETS ARE LOCATED. HOW CAN I BE GUARANTEED MY SAME SEASON TICKET SEATS?
Simply renew your PAF Pledge by June 1 each year.
