New Skyhawk Club Gift Webpage

MARTIN, Tenn. – Prospective donors of The University of Tennessee at Martin athletics program now have a quick, easy way to give to the Skyhawk Club thanks to a new webpage in conjunction with alumni relations.

The official Skyhawk Club donation page – which just launched on July 12 – can be found here.. Donors can choose a total gift amount, designated areas of donation sorted by sport and scholarship funds, tribute information and employer matching gifts, just to name a few. Donors can also schedule payments, add comments or sign up for more information on other gift opportunities.

“The new webpage allows for a more user-friendly approach for our valued donors,” said Marty Shisler, Director of Athletic Marketing and Development. “This webpage opens a lot of avenues for new prospective donors as well.”

The Skyhawk Club is UT Martin’s official organization for generating private financial support for its athletic programs. Contributions through the Skyhawk Club help expand scholarship opportunities for student-athletes, maintain and improve physical facilities, provide academic support programming and many other resources necessary to help UT Martin teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference. One-hundred percent of the gift goes towards the specified fund(s) and documentation is maintained to ensure that all donors’ contributions benefit their designated programs.

To join the Skyhawk Club, the giving level begins at $300 per year. Donors who give $300-$399 are included on the Skyhawk Club email list, have their name on the donor recognition wall in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center, receive a Skyhawk Club license plate that allows entrance to reserved parking at home football and basketball games and a Skyhawk gift. Those who donate $400 to $599 receive all the previously listed benefits as well as hospitality room access to home football and basketball games.
