The Redbird Club

The Redbird Club (TRC) is the annual fund-raising arm for the Illinois State University Athletics Department. Your generous contributions are used to cover the scholarship expenses of more than 400 student-athletes who proudly wear the Red and White.

TRC provides the essential scholarship assistance for all 19 intercollegiate sports at Illinois State. This year alone (2009), TRC will need to generate over $2.7M to pay for scholarship expenses, directly paid to the university. Our goal is for every student-athlete at Illinois State to cross the stage at graduation, receive his or her diploma in one hand and have a championship ring on the other hand. Collectively, we can achieve this goal!

The primary goal of The Redbird Club is to provide funding for student-athlete scholarships as well as to promote the development of intercollegiate athletics at Illinois State University.
