Tis the Season!

FaceBook  Twitter

As the end of the year and holidays approach we know many take this time to make end of year donations to their favorite causes.  We also know there are many organizations you hold near and dear and are thankful Penn State Rugby continues to be one of them.  With that in mind we wanted to make sure you are aware of the many ways you can continue to make a difference for Penn State Rugby.

  1. #GivingTuesday is almost here! You can make a one-time gift or sign up for reoccurring donations at psurugby.org
  2. As you shop online during the pandemic consider using Amazon smile and making Penn State Rugby Alumni Inc. your charity of choice.

  3. You will also be receiving the below appeal letter in your mailbox in the near future and can mail (with a stamp for our newer graduates) a gift with the attached form.

We are so grateful for your support and the difference you make and look forward to seeing you virtually or, fingers crossed, in person this spring!

We Are!

 

Dear Penn State Rugby Family,

As part of the Penn State Rugby family, we know you share our goal of helping the men’s and women’s teams compete and thrive on and off the field.  We are writing to share some details on how you can make our shared goal a reality as we head into 2021.   

Because of your generous and loyal support, our Alumni, parents and friends of the teams are the lifeblood of our organization.  Now, more than ever, you can significantly impact the experience of our current players.  To support that goal our Booster Club launched Level the Playing Field, an effort designed to assure our men and women can compete successfully against well-funded programs.

Currently, the Booster Club’s yearly financial commitment to the University is close to $60,000 and does not include the additional costs of the program and funding of key initiatives that allow our teams to fulfill their potential.  Your gift will directly help our men’s and women’s teams compete and thrive against the best.
