Advancing Athletics at Washington University

Our Purpose

The W Club was organized in 1989 as a formal way to support the programs and opportunities the Department of Athletics offers. Since then, participation in the W Club by former letter winners and other alumni, parents and friends of Athletics has been phenomenal, sparking a remarkable resurgence in pride and interest surrounding Athletics at Washington University. The contributions of W Club members have had a significant impact on university Athletics programs, enriching their quality and broadening opportunities for students.

The W Club’s expectation is nothing less than we expect of our teams: to be the very best. We strive to provide the best in support services, Athletics facilities and academic opportunities for all our student-athletes. This is only possible through the continued generosity of alumni, parents and friends involved in the W Club. By providing funding to meet the rising costs of financing a positive experience for student-athletes today, former athletes, loyal alumni, parents and friends connect on a very personal level with Bears student-athletes and teams.

​Mission Statement

Established in 1989, the W Club, composed of alumni, parents and friends, supports the continued growth, development and enhancement of intercollegiate athletics to benefit Washington University's student-athletes, coaches and the university community.
