2019-20 Falcon Club Membership

Invest in Success

YOUR GIFT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT

The Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund was created to align BGSU Athletics’ fundraising priorities with the increasing need for scholarship support. Falcon Club membership gifts allow our programs to recruit and retain the best student-athletes as we compete for championships in the MAC and WCHA, while also preparing our current Falcons for success upon graduation.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Gifts to the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund expand opportunities to provide our student-athletes with the maximum amount of scholarship support allowed by the NCAA in every sport we sponsor. Currently, we fall short of this important goal, which places BGSU at a disadvantage as we compete with our peers for talented and deserving student-athletes. Athletic scholarship costs have risen by almost $1 million in the last five years, including Cost of Attendance stipends. Now, more than ever, your generous gifts to the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund can help us provide opportunities to Falcon student-athletes.

INVEST IN ALL BGSU STUDENT-ATHLETES

All membership gifts to the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund directly support student-athlete scholarships for all 18 teams sponsored by BGSU Athletics. More than 400 student-athletes represent BGSU in competition, in the classroom and as graduates, and your support can ensure they have the tools they need to be successful.

A gift to the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund is an investment in ALL of BGSU’s student-athletes. To learn more about the Falcon Club please visit bgsufalcons.com/falconclub
