The Green Wave Club is resurgent once again.  Tulane Athletics has officially transitioned from the Tulane Athletics Fund back to its original name, Green Wave Club, which was formed in 1967.

While the name of the fundraising arm for Tulane Athletics has changed, the mission will stay the same.  When donors give to the Green Wave Club, they are still making a direct impact on over 300 student-athletes who proudly represent Tulane in sport, scholarship and service.  The Club will continue to provide student-athletes with opportunities for competitive success and personal growth within the context of sportsmanship, teamwork and integrity.  It is the mission of the Green Wave Club to provide Tulane student-athletes with the best possible resources in order to promote physical, intellectual and emotional development.

“I’d like to thank all of our donors for their support—we are thrilled to bring this exciting club atmosphere back to Tulane Athletics,” said director of athletics Troy Dannen.  “It’s a great time to be a part of our team, and we look forward to bringing back a one-of-a-kind ambiance to our donors that only Tulane can provide.”

Started by a group of Green Wave diehards who wanted to improve Tulane Athletics even further, the Green Wave Club began by collecting $30,000 ($100 from 300 fans) for video equipment.  Today, there are over 3,000 donors to Tulane Athletics, with nearly $3 million being raised annually.
