Established in 1969, the Braves Club (formerly Chiefs Club) is the athletic fund-raiser for Bradley University. The Club supplements the operating budgets of all 14 team sports and sponsors numerous social functions surrounding Braves Athletic events. Along with this task comes the opportunity to promote the image of Bradley Athletics.

Braves Club fund-raising activities have given the Athletic Department the flexibility to expand and improve the academic services offered to student-athletes. This body also plays a major role in supporting the Student-Athlete Affairs program, which is designed to enhance the development of the total student-athlete from orientation to graduation.

The need for a sound recruiting budget, improved facilities and the continuation of academic services to student-athletes remains the primary focus of the Braves Club. Through their support of the Braves Club, Bradley fans are assisting in the continuation of a competitive athletic program built on a solid academic foundation.
