The Thunderbird Club provides scholarship support for Southern Utah University Thunderbird Athletics. While there are benefits for members to receive, such as a tax deduction, priority seating, exclusive access to Thunderbird sports programs, and special recognition, the primary purpose of the Thunderbird Club is to help the greatest student-athletes in the nation attend SUU and achieve success in their competition, in the classroom, and in the community. Those who join the Thunderbird Club are helping the department win in every phase!

Each year, the Thunderbird Club holds a fund drive soliciting both membership and funds.  This campaign includes a group of volunteers who compete to raise money for the athletic department’s Annual Scholarship Fund. Working in teams, these volunteers compete for the Team Fund Drive Championship. For their efforts and success, the winning team gets the Athletic Director’s Suite for a fall football game. Individual members can also earn awards for their relentless approach to making SUU Athletics something special!

Every dollar raised helps a Thunderbird student-athlete work towards earning a degree and competing at the Division 1 level. Without the help of the Thunderbird Club, many of these young men and women would not be afforded the opportunity to be here at SUU. Let’s make their dreams a reality!
