UTEP Athletics has created a new way for Miner fans to support the football program with the launch of the Gridiron Club.
The Gridiron Club provides Miner football fans with the opportunity to invest in the program directly with all funds raised being used to compliment the annual operating budget for the team.
“The Gridiron Club is a great way for UTEP football fans and donors in El Paso and also nationwide to philanthropically support our football program and its future successes through charitable giving,” UTEP Associate A.D. for Development Charley Thrash said. “By becoming a member of the Gridiron Club, our fans and donors are making the commitment necessary to provide the resources that will allow our football program to succeed.”
Benefits to supporting the Gridiron Club include a variety of team experiences, official UTEP Football apparel, a team autographed football, exclusive game day access and more. For the complete list of Gridiron Club benefits, click here.
“The continued support of our fans is essential as our football program continues to make strides on the field and in the classroom,” head coach Dana Dimel said.
“We have increased our athleticism and talent to a point where we are starting to see the fruits of our labor. The next step is to compete for a winning season and a bowl game. With your help, we can provide a first-class experience for our student-athletes, achieve our goals and make the El Paso community proud.”
The funds raised helps provide UTEP’s coaching staff and team with the necessary resources to compete for championships and helps create a premiere student-athlete experience. All funds are managed and dispersed according to university and NCAA policies.
Officials say Gridiron Club donations will be used for a number of different initiatives within the program, including:
- Training Table Meals & Nutrition
- Summer School
- Equipment and Training Resources
- Recruiting Expenses
- Leadership Development and Team Building Programs
