The beginning of the 2017-2018 athletics season also marks the start of a new year to join or renew membership to the Spartan Shield Society.
“To become a member of the Spartan Shield Society is to become a part of the winning tradition of athletic and academic excellence that is Castleton University Athletics,” said Assistant Director of the Castleton Fund and Donors Relations Molly DeMellier. “Each donation is used to help Castleton’s more than 700 student-athletes receive the gear, equipment, meals, travel opportunities, and other tools they need to be successful on and off the field.”
Spartan Shield Society members enjoy a tax deduction, a subscription to Castleton Magazine, e-newsletters, a discounted rate to play in the Castleton Classic, invitation to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and other special events, and access to exclusive Castleton apparel. Gifts exceeding $1,000 will receive advanced access to season tickets to football, basketball, and ice hockey.
There is no minimum donation required to join. Additionally, donations may be made to the Spartan Shield Society as a whole or to an individual team or teams for membership.
