Your Cyclone Club Membership Makes An Impact

Why You Should Join Student-Athlete Investment

The Athletics Department receives no state or University funds, so gifts of all sizes to the Cyclone Club directly impact the lives of over 450 student-athletes at Iowa State. Take pride in knowing that a membership in the Cyclone Club plays a significant role in the daily success of these student-athletes on the field and in the classroom.

It's with your membership that Iowa State Athletics can enable student-athletes to succeed in competition and in the classroom, stay competitive by attracting and retaining the best coaches and staff, and invest in improvements, including state-of-the-art facilities. Show Cyclone Nation your loyalty by signing up – or increasing your contribution – to be part of the Heart of the Nation today.

To make a gift, visit www.cycloneclub.org or call 515-294-5022.

Your gift to the Cyclone Club helps to provide the resources for our student-athletes to pursue their dreams academically, competitively, and socially. Our student-athletes' overall experience at Iowa State would not be possible without the financial support from Cyclone Club members each year.

Cyclone Club donations are crucial to maintaining a standard of excellence for over 440 student-athletes.

NCAA Compliance

Iowa State is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster violates an NCAA, Big 12, or ISU rule, the University may be subject to penalties. In addition, student-athletes or prospects may lose their eligibility for intercollegiate competition. Further, a booster found to have intentionally violated NCAA, Big 12, or ISU rules may be disassociated from Iowa State's athletics program, resulting in a loss of all benefits and privileges offered by the Department of Athletics.

Important knowledge to have as a booster:

Boosters may not provide any extra benefits for prospects, current student-athletes or former student-athletes. Extra benefits include but are not limited to:

  • Cash or any type of gift
  • Vehicle or the use of a vehicle
  • Free or reduced-cost housing
  • Loans or co-signing of loans
  • Free or reduced-cost goods or services

A permissible benefit a booster can be involved with is an occasional meal. Student-athletes may attend an occasional meal hosted by a booster held only at the home of the booster, and it may be catered. Occasional meals must be preapproved by the Athletics Compliance Office.

Boosters are not permitted to make in-person, on- or off-campus recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives or friends. Boosters are also prohibited from initiating telephone or other electronic communication with prospects, their relatives or friends until the individual begins his or her first regular term (fall or spring) at ISU or begins preseason practice (two-a-days).

A booster may employ or arrange for the employment of a student-athlete as long as the student-athlete has registered the job with the Athletics Compliance Office before beginning work.
