Purple and Gold

The Purple & Gold Club is the primary support group for the Whittier College Athletics Department. Through its dedicated fundraising efforts, the Purple & Gold Club serves as a valuable resource for special athletic needs, including travel expenses for out-of-state tournaments, training equipment, facility improvements, athletic shoes, awards, and other items to enhance the men's and women's athletic programs.

Annual contributions help support all 22 intercollegiate athletic teams, involving nearly one-third of the students at Whittier.

In addition to fundraising, the Purple & Gold Club is also active in the lives of the Poet student-athletes through sponsorships of annual events, such as the fall tailgate, the men's and women's basketball classic, the All-Sports Awards Banquet, the P&G Golf Tournament, and the Hall of Induction Dinner.
