The mission of the Sun Devil Club is to sustain a culture that promotes and protects Arizona State University through Sun Devil Athletics. The vision is to build a community of members charged with the responsibility and ability to shape the destiny of Sun Devil Athletics through their annual support and involvement.

The most successful university athletic programs always have a committed community behind them. Whether through ticket sales, donations or general support, the annual consistency and strength of that community involvement is the most significant variable in determining a University’s financial ability to sustain or improve its’ competitive position.  The number of members we can have will be staggering to our competition. The true support of many will be the difference in building a top 15 annual budget.

Join the Sun Devil Club and be a part of shaping the destiny of Sun Devil Athletics. The club is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.
