 You may have heard of the North Greenville University Crusader Club at some point, but you may not know exactly what the club entails. The Crusader Club acts as a fundraiser for the athletic teams at NGU. By donating money to NGU through the Crusader Club, members can help student-athletes receive scholarships.

There are benefits to being a part of the Crusader Club based on how much members give. For example, a student who gives $25 will receive a t-shirt and some stickers. A member who makes a larger donation, such as $5,000, receives polo shirts, tickets to athletic events, priority parking at certain football games and two spots in the fall alumni golf tournament. For those who make a donation of $20,000 dollars or more, a full scholarship is provided to a student-athlete. These donors also receive president box seats for football games and spots for two teams in the golf tournament.

In a letter to potential members, Director of Athletics at NGU, Jan McDonald said, “By joining, our members receive the personal satisfaction of knowing that they are providing life-changing scholarships to deserving student-athletes and helping our athletic teams excel on and off the playing field."

For those looking for a way to support NGU athletics and stay connected even after graduation, the Crusader Club could be just the thing for you.
