I think the 650k is in matching or in extra gifts. Like if we get 1,000 OTOD donations, Wealthy Donor X will donate an additional 150k. I think the 650k is referring to gifts like that.

RE: 1 Tribe Day - June 23rd
I am so proud of The College for how they handled OTOD. I'm so proud they delayed it. I'm so proud they adjusted the message and the asks. I'm so proud they still asked. For those reasons I gave more this OTOD than I've ever given to this effort. I certainly don't give enough to move the needle but the support was so deserved and I'm honored and thankful to be a part of this institution right now.

The $635,000 cited was just from the lead donors to the specific projects and funds cited on the OTOD website. Total donors and dollars are still being counted and will be included in the fiscal year-end press release. As the end of the day approached yesterday, the donor count was around 6,500, and there were still more that had not been counted yet. Dollars are never released until after the day because they take longer to count accurately.

And to get ahead of this, in most years, there is a specific OTOD press release either the Friday or Monday following OTOD. That won't happen this year because next Tuesday is June 30, the last day of the fiscal year and For the Bold campaign. There is not enough room in the schedule or people's inboxes to send out the press release when the final year-end solicitations are also going out. So final OTOD numbers will be later than usual this year for that reason.

My guess is that the 650K is, like in the previous years, extra $$$ big donors contribute when certain levels of contribution are met
They would be added to the final sum of all the regular donations.

I donated to football lighting. Is there actually a plan to upgrade lighting?

Maybe my donation will cover the cost of brighter bulbs.

Probably more expensive than we think. Our light arrangement in tiny compared to the usual. Ours looks more like that which is found on a highschool field. The more professional ones have a huge array.

New lighting is a need at Zable. There is some shadowing on the field and that won't help our long passing game when we find one.
Better lighting would also improve our product when viewing on TV or streaming.
TV games in the SEC definitely outshine us.
