When it comes to the city’s culture much is simply considered “a Memphis thing,” including the 901 area code. In direct acknowledgement and in tribute to location, the Tiger Scholarship Fund has launched a push to add 901 new members to its totals.
In conjunction with Saturday’s football game against Middle Tennessee, the 901 Campaign begins.
The 901 Campaign offers fans an entry-level membership into the Tiger Scholarship Fund. For $25, fans can join TSF and will be acknowledged in TSF publications and receive several benefits. 901 Members will receive an exclusive 901 Campaign water bottle, TSF car sticker and Leaping Tiger lapel pin along with a subscription to “Tiger Insider.” To join, new members can donate at www.gotigersgo.com/donate.
Prior to Saturday’s game, TSF staff will be available outside its hospitality tent located adjacent to Tiger Lane to answer questions about the new 901 Campaign and sign up new members.
In addition to Tiger Scholarship Fund staff signing up new members outside its hospitality tent prior to each of the remaining five home football games, TSF will also be located in the Grand Lobby at FedEx Lobby prior to basketball games as well as other selected athletic events to sign up new members as the 901 Campaign heads toward its goal of 901 new members.
Current Tiger Scholarship Fund members are encouraged to help identify new members. TSF will offer priority points for members who help land new donors (five priority points per new member).
In addition to becoming a 901 Member by visiting with TSF staff at events, more information can be obtained by calling the Tiger Scholarship Fund at (901) 678-2334 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Fans can also follow the progress of the campaign utilizing the Hashtag #Join901Tigers.
