Chris Paul Donates $2.5 Million to Wake Forest Basketball
Former Wake Forest University superstar and hometown hero Chris Paul is donating $2.5 million to support Wake Forest Basketball.
The Houston Rockets point guard’s multi-million dollar donation to his alma mater is the largest ever by a former basketball student-athlete or any alumnus under the age of 35. The donation will ensure that future generations of Wake Forest players can succeed on and off the court.
Thanks to Chris Paul’s significant donation, progress will be made to assist in transforming both the men’s and women’s basketball clubhouse. In addition, the men’s team locker room will be renamed the Chris Paul Locker Room in his honor. Paul says of his donation:
Giving back has always been important to my family and me, and Wake Forest is part of my family. The recent investments towards improving Wake Forest Athletics are amazing, and now is the time to give back in a meaningful way. The locker room transformation project inspired me, because that’s where players build relationships and create a unifying camaraderie that is the foundation of success on the court. Forming lifelong friendships with your teammates is one of the most rewarding aspects of sports.
Kudos to Chris Paul for his incredible donation.
