In an effort to more equitably serve our Spartan Fund members, a Spartan Point system was put into place in 2009. Spartan Points reward longevity, loyalty and generosity of supporters of MSU Athletics. Spartan Points are utilized to determine Spartan Fund benefits like priority seating at away games, bowl games, post season tournaments as well as parking and seat upgrades.
Remember, as a Spartan Fund member, you earn Spartans Points used in the allocation of parking, away game ticket requests and post-season ticket requests. Allocations are based on your Spartan Fund membership level, followed by your Spartan Point total within your membership level. Please be sure to check your Go Green account to ensure the accuracy of your Spartan Points total.
Remember, if you have any questions regarding your Spartan Fund membership, please do not hesitate to contact us. We'd love to hear from you! Thank you for making us SPARTAN STRONG! GO GREEN!

Understanding Your Spartan Points
Consecutive Years as a Season Ticket Holder:
Three (3) points will be awarded for each consecutive year of season ticket purchase in your name for men's basketball, football, ice hockey, women's basketball, and volleyball. Years of purchase will be determined based upon data available through the Spartan Ticket Office. If a year of purchasing season tickets is skipped, your consecutive years as a season ticket holder drops back to one (1) when you purchase season tickets again. The purchase of "Go Green" Cards or student season tickets will not count toward season ticket purchase.
Consecutive Years as a Spartan Fund member:
Two (2) points will be awarded for each year of consecutive membership to the Spartan Fund (formerly the Ralph Young Fund). If a year of donating is skipped, your consecutive years as a Spartan Fund member drops back to one (1) when you rejoin.
Lifetime Giving to Athletics:
One (1) point will be awarded for each $100 gift made to the Spartan Fund.
Lifetime Giving to University:
One (1) point will be awarded for each $1,000 gift made to the university (excluding athletic gifts).
Irrevocable Planned Gift to Athletics:
One (1) point will be awarded for each $1,000 of the charitable deduction allowed as a result of a charitable gift annuity (CGA) or a charitable remainder trust (CRT). Contact the Spartan Fund to discuss and document your charitable remainder trust so you may determine your available points.
