Lynx Club for Athletics


Our 2021 Rhodes Athletics Giving Challenge was a success! With the amazing support of our alumni, parents, faculty/staff, students, and friends we easily surpassed our initial goal of 527 gifts.

Our efforts secured 680 gifts, raising $112,879. Each of these are records for Rhodes College Athletics.

Rhodes established the Lynx Club to ensure that these talented student-athletes have the resources they need to succeed. Financial support of the athletic program is critical to building a championship caliber program. We encourage alumni, parents of current and former athletes, and friends to invest in the athletic program. All gifts to the Lynx Club support our athletic programs and donors have the option to designate their gifts to any sport. 

The mission of the Lynx Club is to secure financial support for Rhodes College Athletics. Each year, approximately 25% of our students compete on one of 10 men’s and 11 women’s varsity teams in the Southern Athletic Association.

On behalf of the student-athletes whose college experience will be greatly enriched by your support, thank you for considering a gift.
