The Letterwinners Club is an exclusive group designed to foster a continued lifelong relationship between all student-athlete alumni and SDSU Athletics.
Members of the Letterwinners Club play a key role in providing opportunities for our current and future student-athletes to continue the Jackrabbit legacy. All student-athlete alumni who make a gift to the Jackrabbit Club become members of the Letterwinners Club.
Excellence Funds were created to allow donors interested in making an above and beyond impact on SDSU student-athletes to not only direct their giving to a specific sport, but to help fund specific, critical initiatives for that sport.
Each program has an excellence fund and has identified some specific needs to help them create a culture of excellence within their program.
Excellence fund giving is a great way for donors looking to make a direct and visible impact on a program above and beyond their contribution to the Jackrabbit Club.

Do I receive Jackrabbit Club member benefits for my gift to an endowment, capital project or excellence fund?
No. The only way to receive Jackrabbit Club benefits is to make an annual fund gift to the Jackrabbit Club or a specific sport's Jackrabbit Club account. Jackrabbit Club benefits are tied to annual fund giving to the Jackrabbit Club as this is the most fundamental way you can support SDSU Athletics. Each dollar donated to the Jackrabbit Club directly impacts our ability to pay our annual scholarship bill and set our annual operating budget.
Is there a way to direct my support to a specific sport?
Donors have the option to direct any gift to a sport or sports of their choosing. Donors may help a sport pay its annual scholarship bill by giving to their Jackrabbit Club account or assist with a program's priority initiatives through an above and beyond gift to their excellence fund. Donors may also stipulate specific criteria when endowing a scholarship.
Is my contribution tax-deductible?
Yes. All contributions to SDSU, excluding per seat licenses, are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Please consult your tax advisor to determine deductibility specific to your gift.
How do I make a gift to the Jackrabbit Club?
There are numerous ways to make your gift including options for payroll deduction and regular installment payments. All methods of giving and more are outlined on our Giving to SDSU Athletics page.
Where are the Athletics Development offices located?
The Athletics Development offices are located on the second floor of the Jerome J. Lohr SDSU Foundation building located at the corner of 8th street and Medary Avenue.
When should I make or renew my annual contribution?
All Jackrabbit Club annual fund gifts must be made by May 31, 2019 in order to maintain membership, or become a new member, and receive your benefits in the 2019-20 Jackrabbit Club membership year (membership materials mailed in June). This May 31st deadline is important as it allows you to receive a full year of benefits, as well as an annual priority point bonus, and investments received by May 31st are used to establish budgets for the next fiscal year. There are numerous ways to make your gift, including options for payroll deduction and regular installment payments.
When is the Jackrabbit Club membership year?
The 2019-20 Jackrabbit Club membership year runs from June 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020. You should receive a packet with your membership card and other important membership information in mid-to-late June.
What are Priority Points and how are they used?
Priority points create a transparent process for providing high-demand, limited inventory tickets to our valued Jackrabbit Club members. Priority points are used for determining seat location in an allocation year, away game ticket allocation and post-season ticket allocation (in conjunction with Jackrabbit Club member level). The priority points system is set up to reward consistency in investment in SDSU student-athletes as well as highest impact projects. See our priority points page for a full detailing of our priority points system and to view the priority points calculator.
Do I receive Jackrabbit Club credit or priority points for gifts made to other areas of the University?
No. Only gifts made to a Jackrabbit Club account are eligible for Jackrabbit Club benefits and only gifts to SDSU Athletics are eligible for priority points.
