Join The Spartan Foundation Today! Do It Now!

It's easy to join the Spartan Foundation, and support your alma mater's athletic programs. Click the "Join the Foundation" link found on the navigation bar to the left of your screen.

The Spartan Foundation is the fund raising arm of the San Jose State University Athletics Department.

As its primary objective, the Spartan Foundation provides scholarship support for all of San Jose State's NCAA Division I athletic teams. Over 350 student-athletes benefit from the funds provided by the Spartan Foundation and its programs.

Through newsletters, tailgate parties, auctions, golf tournaments and other special events, the Spartan Foundation provides an opportunity for alumni, friends, parents and boosters to become involved with San Jose State athletics.

The Spartan Foundation Board of Directors provides guidance consistent with the goals and policies of San Jose State, the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, conference affiliations, and the National Collegiate Athletics Association.

Without scholarships, most student-athletes would not have the opportunity to attend the university of their choice and participate in quality and competitive athletics programs.

San Jose State is committed to providing that opportunity to over 300 student-athletes by providing over $2,500,000 in scholarship assistance. No state funds or student body monies are allotted for scholarship support.

With a gift to the Spartan Foundation, you can assist in underwriting that cost and know you are helping our young men and women pursue excellence, both in the classroom and on the athletic playing fields.

San Jose State has made a commitment, our student-athletes have made a commitment. We ask for yours.

To join the foundation, just click the "Join the Foundation" link on the navigation bar to the left, print off the form and fill it out, and send it into the Spartan Foundation!

There is a link under the "Spartan Info Center" and another one under "Spartan Hot Links" on the navigation bar to the left to access the form.

The form looks blurry on the internet, but when you print the form, it is nice and clear to read.

It's that easy to join the Spartan Foundation! The address to send your donation is on the form itself.

Split the Pot:

Come out to any Spartan home football game and go home with over $800 cash!

All it takes is the purchase of a Split-the-Pot ticket for $1. Tickets are sold through half-time by a Spartan team. Tickets are available at kiosks located throughout Spartan Stadium.

Fifty percent (50%) of Split-the-Pot ticket sales are returned (minus taxes of course) to the holder of the winning ticket. Thirty-five (35%) of the sales are used for student-athlete scholarships.

The remaining fifteen (15%) is returned to the program's booster club. A special guest randomly draws the winning number between the third and fourth quarters of home football games. The lucky winner is announced during the fourth quarter.

Make sure you don't leave early, as you must be present to win. For complete rules contact the Spartan Foundation or visit a Split-the-Pot kiosk on game day. Don't miss another minute of the action.
