Championship Trophies

Northwest and its football program have enjoyed a long, proud tradition.

Athletics play a key role in the total experience of students' lives at Northwest. With their high visibility, athletics serve the University as a rallying point for students, faculty, alumni and fans. In order to continue the proud tradition that is Bearcat football, we need your support!

To ensure that Northwest's tradition of excellence lives on and continues to grow, we encourage you to support the Champions Fund at the highest possible level. On behalf of Northwest and its student-athletes and administration, we thank you for your support.

A Note from Athletic Director Mel Tjeerdsma

Dear Bearcats,

Thank you for your tremendous support of the Bearcat football program. I honestly believe that the strong and continued support our program receives from dedicated Northwest alumni and friends is vital in keeping our program among the elite Division II programs in the nation.

As we all know, getting to the top is difficult. Staying at the top - which is the goal for Bearcat football - is even more difficult. In order to accomplish this goal, we need your help.

Please consider supporting the Champions Fund. The fund has been established not only to honor our 2013 NCAA Division II Football National Championship, but also to support our Bearcat athletic programs into the future. Private support is essential in order for us to maintain and build upon the proud tradition of winning.

Through your generous support, it's our hope and desire to bring many more national championships to Northwest.

Thank you for your consideration, and GO BEARCATS!
