The Statesman Club

The Statesman Club

Originally established in 1970 as the DSU Booster Club, the Statesman Club was restructured in 2013 to foster support of men's and women's intercollegiate athletics through avenues of giving that include annual giving, scholarship endowment, planned giving opportunities, and special project support.

Delta State University prides itself on a tradition of excellence, both in the classroom and on the field of competition. Our student-athletes are excellent scholars as well as competitors, and with the support of the Statesman Club, that tradition will continue.

The Mission
The Statesman Club has the obligation and the responsibility, in association with the Delta State Foundation, a legal nonprofit corporation, to use its resources in a responsible and effective manner to foster the mission of Delta State University Athletics. The mission of the Statesman Club is to aid the Athletics Department in the form of student-athlete scholarships, funding for facility improvements, supplement funding to individual sports, and in many other ways necessary to have an outstanding athletics program.

Why give to the Statesman Club?
Because State funding for Delta State Athletics is limited, the Statesman Club is an integral factor in providing for the excellence of the program. Through donations of DSU supporters, the Statesman Club is able to provide financial support for student-athletes participating in 13 varsity sports, as well as cheerleading.  

Statesmen and Lady Statesmen supporters throughout the United States and the world show their pride in DSU athletics by being a part of the Statesman Club. We welcome all DSU alumni and friends.   

With three distinct giving levels, The Statesman Club offers an opportunity to make an immediate and real impact on our nearly 400 student-athletes, coaches and staff. Every dollar raised by The Statesman Club directly effects our coaches, student-athletes and staff, as we strive to build champions on and off the field.  

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 22, as we host North Greenville University for Pig Pickin', and Saturday, Nov. 10, as Mississippi College travels to Parker Field-McCool Stadium for Homecoming!   

We appreciate your support and we are excited about the 2018-2019 campaign. With your help, we can make it a year to remember!
