We hope you are as excited as we are for the 2023 Warrior Football Campaign. The Football Players Association (FPA) is an organization founded by former players, but open to the entire WSU football family including parents, families and friends. Since its inception the FPA has experienced explosive growth and success and because of you, it continues to grow in its membership and support of the Winona State Football program. However, as we continue to grow, so do the financial needs and demands of the program and they appear to get more significant every year.
The FPA’s core purpose is to engage our entire warrior football family and community together, in an effort to raise the awareness WSU football and help meet the financial needs of the football program that are not met through the Winona State Athletics budget.
Over the last seven years the FPA has created the Game Day Experience tailgate, purchased team travel apparel and gear, field equipment, locker room equipment and furniture, meeting room technologies, and all while supporting unparalleled support of WSU football scholarship initiatives. But as the need grows, so does the importance of your continued participation and support of the FPA.
In order to help keep up with budget shortfalls, increased needs and rising inflation, the FPA Board of Directors has unanimously approved its first ever dues increase for the 2023/2024 fiscal membership cycle. Please note that 100% of all contributions go directly the football program’s funding needs and your membership and participation is a direct contribution to helping every member of the football team. The Winona State Football Players Association is also federally recognized as 501©3 organization so your donations are also tax deductible.
While nobody likes a fee increase, when you know that every dollar goes to help every member of our football program have a better student athlete experience, it makes giving a whole lot easier and far more rewarding. Please consider maintaining your FPA membership now and for many years to come. When the kids win, we all win!
Thank you for your support.
