As Mountaineers, we're motivated by more than winning. It's about answering to a higher calling and playing for a purpose greater than ourselves. It's a difference seen on the field, heard across campus and one that echoes throughout the state and across the country. It's why we've been able to fill stadiums and trophy shelves. It's what happens when you're more than an individual, more than a team. We're one Mountaineer Nation and when we're united, we're unstoppable.

No matter if you're a fan, friend, alum, spent your entire life here or were just passing through, odds are - in some way - you're Old Gold and Blue through and through.

Time 2 Climb is a rallying cry for Mountaineer Nation, a chance for all Mountaineers to link and join together as we collectively look to further inspire excellence in the thing we hold dear: the Mountaineers. On the field. Off the field. On game day. Every day. This effort isn't just a campaign to sustain our place as a leader within intercollegiate athletics but a bold commitment to reach for new heights. We can either admire what we've done or we can keep pushing, keep building, keep climbing, keep demanding more.

It's Time 2 Climb.

Join The Climb

No matter your tie to WVU, there are no shortage of ways for our fans, friends, and alumni to be involved and Join the Climb during this ever-critical juncture in our history. The following outlines different ways to participate in the campaign based on your interests, current degree of involvement and preferred level of charitable support.

Woodburn Hall

Now is your #Time2Climb with a one-time gift of $252, or enjoy the peace of mind and added financial flexibility of a recurring, monthly gift of $21 per month to receive the premium benefits outlined below.

To the degree that you're comfortable and able, fans are also strongly encouraged to Join the Climb with a gift less than $252 to still enjoy and be eligible to win various grand prizes over the course of the year, although such support will not qualify for premium benefit access. Additional information regarding grand prize entries can be found below.

First-time season ticket holders or those who had previously purchased season tickets but had discontinued their purchase in prior years, are invited to Join the Climb by re-upping or completing a first-time MAC membership to earn priority consideration for seating opportunities at Milan Puskar Stadium and the WVU Coliseum. While such gifts are non-deductible, they will still afford fans an opportunity to participate in grand prize drawings as well as earn select benefits of the #Time2Climb campaign (exceptions and exclusions apply; noted below).

Advancing the successes of the Old Gold and Blue has never been easier. Consider renewing your MAC membership at an enhanced amount of at least 112% year-over-year to proudly support our critical #Time2Climb campaign efforts. You will receive the premium benefits outlined below and have a chance to be entered to win many of the grand prizes throughout the course of the year.

Did You Know

Did you know that approximately one in every 20 West Virginians is a WVU graduate? However, out of the 70,000 alumni living in Almost Heaven, only 4% have made contributions to WVU Athletics.

If just 5% more of these alumni decide it is Time 2 Climb, the Mountaineers would rank in the top tier of the Big 12 in active annual membership.
