Our Purpose   Join Now!

BaseballThe McKendree Bearcat Booster Club (MBBC) is the fundraising arm for McKendree University Athletics. Supported by individuals and businesses alike, the MBBC provides funds that support program operations and facility enhancements for more than 850 student-athletes. Gifts to the MBBC support athletic programs in the following ways:


• Enhancement of athletic budgets supporting 35 sports programs

• Equipment, travel, uniforms and supplies

• Improvements and repairs of fields and facilities


The MBBC is dedicated to providing an exceptional athletic experience for the student-athletes at McKendree University through annual contributions. Members include alumni, former student-athletes, parents, faculty, staff and friends who are dedicated to the advancement of Bearcat Athletics. In keeping with this vision, the McKendree University Athletic Department benefits directly from contributions to the Bearcat Booster Club. No matter how much you choose to donate, every gift provides necessary resources to compete at the NCAA Division II level.

The support that the MBBC and its members provide McKendree Athletics is the driving force behind student-athletes being able to maintain the highest standards of excellence, both academically and athletically. In the 2018-2019 academic year, McKendree University had 27 student-athletes earn the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) Council of Presidents' Academic Excellence Award and 228 student-athletes earned Academic All-GLVC Honors. Additionally, 34 student-athletes received the GLVC's Brother James Gaffney Distinguished Scholar Award for earning a 4.0 grade-point average over the course of the 2018-19 academic year.
