Bearkat Athletics' focus is to provide our student-athletes with high level academic and athletic opportunities, as well as all of the resources required to do so.

This requires significant financial support both annually and through larger one time contributions (major gifts). The cost of student-athlete's many needs - including fifth-year and summer scholarships, facility & equipment upgrades, academic resources, and much, much more - go beyond the financial support provided through internal resources. Because of this, it is imperative that we receive financial support from our biggest fans, alumni, former-letterwinners, and general supporters.

To that end, please join the Bearkat Champions Fund, sole fundraising arm of Bearkat Athletics. By doing so, you help us in "Building Champions" on and off of the field of play while enhancing the student-athlete experience.

The Bearkat Champions Fund benefits all student-athletes by supporting activities that cultivate values and lessons gained through athletic participation, such as teamwork, leadership, sportsmanship, and ethical and responsible behavior both on and off the field of play.

As a Bearkat Champion, you will earn priority towards NCAA Playoff/Championship/Premium Away Games (e.g. Texas Tech football game)/Battle of the Piney Woods tickets, season ticket seating location, premium parking, access to donor lounges during baseball and basketball games and invitation only special events. 

Your support is greatly appreciated and is one of the reasons we continue to have significant success both academically and athletically. The NCAA regards all donors to the University's Athletics program as representatives of Sam Houston State University's athletic interests (Boosters), which makes the donor subject to all applicable NCAA legislation.
