Donor Benefits

The greatest benefit of being a Spartan Fund donor is the knowledge that your generous gift provides opportunities to pursue excellence for our 700+ student-athletes in the classroom, in competition, and in the community.

Gifts made to MSU Athletics during one fiscal year (deadline of June 30) – whether it be to a facility project, endowment, premium seating, varsity sport and/or unrestricted – accumulate to provide you a donor level for the upcoming athletics season (beginning July 1).  Example:  John Spartan gives a gift of $1,000 on May 15, 2021, $600 of which is designated towards his Zone seats for football and another $400 provided to the Women’s Basketball program.  His cumulative gift of $1,000 provides him a Captains Club donor level and associated benefits beginning July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.

Please note, with an earlier football parking selection process and the Men’s Basketball Seat Adjustment, the deadline to make contributions, including seat premiums, that effect Spartan Fund membership level and Spartan Points is May 1, 2023.
