The Athlos Society
Established in 2021, The Athlos Society is Michigan State Athletics’ leadership giving society, recognizing Spartan Fund donors making philanthropic commitments of $50,000 or more (separate from seat premiums; gifted over 5 years) in support of state-of-the-art facilities, endowments that provide perpetual support, excellence funds that enable our head coaches to address their most pressing needs, as well as other philanthropic designations.
Athlos, derived from the Greek word meaning contest or feat, embodies the ancient Greek ideal of pursuing perfection and excellence.
The Athlos Society membership begins with a philanthropic commitment of $50,000 or more (separate from seat-related premiums) that can be gifted over a 5-year period.
Membership can be maintained through the length of the commitment, provided donations are contributed annually.

In recognition of their generous support, members of the Athlos Society will have opportunities for exclusive access and experiences with Spartan head coaches, student-athletes, and administrators through events, pre-game sideline access for Spartan football, away game travel, as well as increased priority points.
Inaugural members of The Athlos Society will be invited to a Paint the Spartan Helmet event on September 9, 2021.
