What is The Annual Billiken Club Donation for Saint Louis Athletics?
The Annual Billiken Club Donation for Saint Louis University Athletics is the financial fuel that powers the Billikens. By contributing to The Annual Billiken Club Donation, SLU alumni, parents, fans and friends help support the 350 student-athletes who compete in our 18 NCAA Division I varsity programs. Annual Billiken Club Donation funds are a vital supplement to the athletic department’s operating budget and are used for travel, equipment, recruiting, scholarships, salaries and other operational costs.
The enthusiastic support and generous contributions of our fans are critical elements of our success. This was evident once again during the 2014-15 academic year, which saw Billiken student-athletes enjoy many accomplishments.
Many highlights were achieved in the past year. Men’s soccer earned a national top-10 ranking and defeated Tulsa in an NCAA Championship first-round game at Hermann Stadium; baseball prevailed in a tight race to capture a fourth straight Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season crown; men’s swimming and diving won A-10 titles in two events; women’s basketball decisively defeated nationally ranked A-10 rival George Washington at Chaifetz Arena; and men’s track and field scored a school-record number of points at the A-10 outdoor meet.
Outstanding young women and men will continue to make SLU their academic and athletic destination. To help these student-athletes realize their goals through potential budget enhancements in our department, The Annual Billiken Club Donation for Saint Louis Athletics must continue to grow in dollars and participation.
By purchasing season tickets as part of The Annual Billiken Club Donation for Saint Louis Athletics, you are providing present and future Billikens a greater opportunity to do their part in securing SLU as a leader in collegiate athletics. We thank you in advance for your support.
