Bulldog Club

Drake University is home to 18 NCAA Division I athletic teams. Collectively, our Bulldogs have won nine conference championships in the last 18 months. As Des Moines’ Hometown Teams, we are proud of our student-athletes’ achievements in their sports, in the classroom, and within the community. Drake is committed to not only athletic excellence, but to promoting teamwork and leadership year-round. Your gift to the Drake Athletics gives 370 student-athletes the resources they need to compete for championships on the field and court and for championships experience in life.

Our matching challenge and additional gift challenge will help us support our student athletes and remain competitive. Thank you for your support!
