About the Cardinal Varsity Club


About the Cardinal Varsity Club

The Cardinal Varsity Club (CVC) was established Oct. 16, 1959, with the first formal annual membership drive totaling $1,800 from 154 members. Since 1959, the mission of the CVC has never wavered from its original purpose, “to engage fans, friends, and alumni to raise funds for student-athlete scholarships and general budgetary support”. CVC members have continually supported Ball State’s talented student-athletes with their generous gifts and annually provide a foundation for a quality Division I athletic program.

This is just the beginning of what we will accomplish with the foundation CVC members provide. Our vision is to create the model program in the Mid-American Conference: win conference championships, succeed in post season competition, excel in the classroom and contribute to the campus and local community.

Our student-athletes are performing at the highest level and dreaming big. We need your help to make those dreams a reality. Without state funding, we must come together as benefactors to ensure the future strength of the Ball State athletics program. The Ball State community, donors, alumni, and fans, continue to be passionate about our athletic program - proving our dreams can be realized. This can only be accomplished as one team with a single focus.

CVC members are committed to this vision and to these dreams.  Through the generosity of our donors we are able to provide the opportunities for our student-athletes to succeed in the classroom, in competition and in life.  Your passion for Ball State Athletics is what drives us every day to make our vision a reality.  As a team, we can make our student-athletes dreams come true.  JOIN CVC TODAY.  In addtion to the annual fund support, the Cardinal Varsity Club has other gift options to support athletics available through the Ball State University Foundation.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about the CVC and how you can make a difference in our student-athlete's lives.  To enroll today or for any questions, please contact us at (765) 285-8120 or
