Memberships support the athletic department in providing scholarship aid and operational funding to more than 500 SVSU student-athletes participating in 19 varsity sports. Each donation assists us in our mission of building champions in the classroom, in competition, and in life. Membership support comes with a variety of associated benefits, such as reserved seating at football games, game-day hospitality, reserved parking and club merchandise. 


The Michigan Education Savings Program allows employees to save money for educational expenses. Account earning will grow on both a federal and state tax-deferred basis until the beneficiary is ready to go to college. The funds may be used at almost any eligible institution in the nation.
