About



The Blues are back! Support Whitman student-athletes in their return to competition with a gift during Game On!

On Feb 2-3, be part of the team by giving to a specific varsity sport or the W Club Fund to boost Blues programs. Gifts support team operations, recruiting, and more to assist Whitman athletes competing at the highest level. 

Go Blues! 


Share words of encouragement

When making a gift, share words of encouragement for current athletes! We’ll share these throughout the campaign on social media and with our athletes throughout the semester. The Blues family is stronger when we are together. Give back and share what Whitman athletics means to you.

Join us in the stands

Your charitable gift during Game On demonstrates to today's athletes that we are still cheering them on, and now you can join them in the stands! Whitman Athletics is currently offering fans a chance to purchase a cutout for $30, which will be placed in the stands this season! Order your cutout and submit your photo before Wednesday, February 3

Stay connected

Celebrate Whitman Athletics past and present, during virtual team open houses on Tuesday, February 2 starting at 5:00pm PST. Coaches from each sport will host a virtual gathering to share updates, answer questions, and socialize. Visit the Events tab at the top of this page to view the varied start times and zoom links.

Go the extra mile

We can all use a little extra support along the way. Leverage your gift by making it match, helping your teammate’s gift go a little further!

What is the W CLUB?

With a gift to the W Club or your favorite varsity sport, you will instantly become part of the W Club! By becoming a W Club member, you are creating experiences for varsity athletes that uniquely contribute to intellectual vitality, leadership, flexibility, and a determination to succeed in a diverse and changing world.

Make a gift, share words of encouragement!

This year during Game On, we added a question to the end of the giving form because ... we want to hear from YOU

When you make your gift during Game On today through Feb 3, we will be collecting inspiring and motivating messages to share with our student-athletes. Who knows, you might even see it featured here or on social media as well! 

Thank you to Steve Setchell, VP of Development and Alumni Relations at Whitman College, for kicking off these great messages for our student-athletes.
