FAYETTEVILLE — The Razorback Foundation, Inc., today announced a new, mobile-friendly opportunity to join the Foundation. Non-Razorback Foundation members can now text ONERazorback to 91999 to become a member of the Foundation from anywhere at any time.
“We want to offer a simple, mobile-friendly opportunity for all Arkansans and Hog fans to join the Razorback Foundation to support Razorback Athletics,” said Scott Varady, executive director of the Razorback Foundation. “For $4.17 a month, or $50 a year, anyone can become a member of the Foundation and make a positive, lasting impact on more than 465 Razorback student-athletes.”
According to the 2018 Pew Research “Internet/Broadband Fact Sheet,” as the adoption of traditional broadband service has slowed in recent years, a growing share of Americans now use smartphones as their primary means of online access at home. In fact, today one-in-five American adults are “smartphone-only” internet users – meaning they own a smartphone, but do not have traditional home broadband service. This number has increased to 20 percent of Americans in 2018 versus only eight percent in 2013.
Varady continued, “Additionally, graduates of the University of Arkansas are able to join our Young Alumni program for $35 a year for a five-year period from the award of their initial degree and receive 50 percent off Razorback Football and Men's Basketball season tickets, priority access for single-game tickets, like Homecoming, and begin to receive member benefits and priority points. Simply text RFYoungAlumni to 41444 to join and stay connected with the Razorbacks no matter where your post-graduate years take you.
We want Arkansans in all 75 counties in Arkansas and wherever Razorback alumni and fans live and work to join and be a member of the Razorback Foundation family.”
