The mission of the Big Blue Club is to bring together the university and those individuals who believe in promoting and supporting intercollegiate athletics and Millikin student-athletes.
The club functions cooperatively with the athletic department and the alumni and development office in promoting Millikin athletics and fostering fundraising efforts to support the athletic program.
Interested in Millikin athletics? Join the Big Blue Club! Unrestricted gifts benefit the entire Millikin athletics program, while gifts made to specific teams directly benefit the program to which they are designated. Gifts of all amounts are welcome, as every dollar raised supports Millikin student-athletes. This booster club has been a positive factor in providing the best experiences for these young athletes as they compete in the toughest conference in NCAA Division III.

Big Blue Benefits
Big Blue club members will receive two email publications: the weekly Big Blue Beat with team updates, records and stories, and the monthly BluePrint with spotlight stories on current athletes, coaches, alumni athletes, and donors to the Big Blue Club. Additionally, participants will be invited to special events held in conjunction with appearances by Big Blue athletic teams in cities and venues throughout the country.
Where your money goes
The Big Blue Club was created to benefit Millikin student-athletes in 18 intercollegiate sports and one related activity. Gifts to the Big Blue Club provide additional support above the university's athletic budget, fund the club’s administrative costs and underwrite special projects which might otherwise go unfunded.
Over the years, some of the special items the club has provided include:
- Outfield fence for softball
- Football helmets
