The newly formed group, called Community Sponsors, will begin their efforts working side by side with the current Wildcat Challenge that presents a fund-raising competition among nine “teams” aligned in varying ways with the university.

Symbolic donations will be requested to help sustain the historic institution, which is now threatened by financial problems, and to teach both youths and adults the importance of such protection.
