Every year, every season, WCU is able to support our student athletes journey on and off the field ONLY with your help. As a member of the Catamount Club, you play a vital role in impacting the current and future trajectory of student-athletes’ lives. If you aren’t yet a member of the Catamount Club, this is a great year to get involved and know that you are an integral part of transforming lives. If you are already a Catamount Club member, consider moving to the next level of support as a leading champion of our student-athletes. Because this year, it just means more.
This past year, we defined what being a Catamount means. The Catamount Nation has remained strong and resilient because of your generosity. Your “ready-mode” giving has supported the scholastic endeavors of our student-athletes even when they couldn’t do what they love to do: play the game; play to win; play for you.
Catamount Club Membership Programs provide discounts to affinity groups as well as current Catamount Club members who choose to upgrade their giving level.
Certain membership levels enjoy access to Purple Zone pre-game hospitality during football and basketball seasons as well as access to premier parking opportunities, plus much more.
In addition to contributing at a membership level that qualifies for reserved parking, Catamount Club Priority parking is determined by your membership level first, and then your CATS Points rank, second, within your level.

We are defined by what we do in times of crisis. The Catamount Nation again rose to the occasion by actively supporting our student-athletes through scholarship support, but we aren’t done yet.
Your previous and current support has allowed our student-athletes to be agile; to pivot and adapt during unprecedented times. They were given the opportunity to change hopelessness into hopefulness and isolation into community. We stand by our own, in good times and bad.
Providing immediate-use funds towards expenditures associated with the cost to compete, practice, and train during the 2020-21 academic year while WCU Athletics face the changes caused by the current pandemic.

“Having an athletic scholarship means a lot to me and it is something that I take great pride in. It is something that I have worked hard for my entire life and it means a lot that Western gave me that opportunity.”

"My scholarship is so important to me because it not only provides me with the opportunity to play at Western, but I am also able to excel in the classroom and I have amazing academic support behind me. I have every opportunity to pursue my goals and achieve them here, both on and off the court."
