Coach Archer & Cornell Football ready for the 2016 Season!

There have been many great things happening for Cornell Football during the off-season and we look forward to the 2016 campaign.

The Cornell Football Association, Inc. (CFA) is an independent autonomous not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with complete control of our affairs and finances. All donations are tax deductible, and your contributions inure to the benefit of Cornell Football.

We continue to make significant progress on our agenda as outlined in the CFA “White Paper”; ultimately, this enables us to put the highest caliber student-athletes on the playing field. As we move forward, embracing the importance of a competitive “marquee football” program and ALL that it brings to the entire Cornell University community is paramount to our success!

Please help us in this very worthwhile endeavor to advance our team to the head of the Ivy League, by joining/renewing your membership today for the 2016-2017 campaign. Our calendar year for membership runs from July 1- December 31. In order to bring our current memberships in sync with our new CFA calendar year, all new memberships, as well as renewals after April 1, 2016 will extend through December 31, 2017. Essentially, this adds an additional 6 months to your CFA membership, without cost, until the January 2018 renewal period. Please check to determine if you are a current member of the CFA.

Your continued support of the CFA greatly impacts our budget capacity and ability to help support the program and its players. We would like to thank all for their generous support and encourage everyone to join/renew your membership and make a contribution today.

As importantly, we need your help in encouraging others to join the CFA in our efforts, effectively enabling us to expand our reach through our broad based “Win Big Red” nationwide constituency network. Please feel free to forward this transmission to others and encourage them to sign up today.

Finally, your monetary contributions to the “New CFA”, membership dues and event sponsorships are invaluable and greatly appreciated; without your strong financial commitment, the CFA will not have the necessary resources to be nearly as meaningful or effective. All donations are tax deductible, and your contributions directly benefit Cornell Football.

Thanks for your support of the “New CFA”!!!
