Support UGA Rugby

We appreciate any and all efforts in supporting our club and the student-athletes.  One easy and fun way is to come out and cheer us on during our matches!  See below for other ways in which you can help UGA Rugby.

Financial Support

 

While the club receives minimal funding through the Department of Recreational Sports, we are encouraged to strive to become financially independent.  Therefore, donations are essential to the growth and stability of the UGARFC, and there are 2 main ways to donate:

1. Donating to the Alumni Association Fund

Donations made to the UGA Rugby Alumni Association Fund are controlled by the UGARFCAA and make the most impact.   The Alumni Association is legally established as a non-profit public charity entity called The Rugby Alumni Association of UGA, INC., and has tax exempt status under section 509(a)(2) of the IRS Code.  Therefore, every donation to this fund is tax-deductible!

The fastest and easiest way to donate to this fund is via PayPal. 

 

 

You can also mail a check, payable to the UGARFCAA:

2. Donating via the University of Georgia Foundation (aka the Endowed Fund)

 

Through a partnership with the University of Georgia and Rec Sports, endowed funds have been set up for many club sports, helping to enrich our students' college experiences and to make Athens a more active community.   These funds benefit the club in perpetuity.  To donate to UGA Rugby in this manner, please follow the simple steps below:

1. visit https://gail.uga.edu/commit

2. Search for "rugby club" and select "UGA Rugby Club Endowed Fund - 71084003" (see screenshot below for guidance). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time, Talents, and More

In addition to sending financial support, we welcome other types of assistance!  We could always use people to help with various efforts, including but not limited to promoting the club, recruiting, event planning, and fundraising.  We strive to think "outside of the box" when it comes to leveraging our network of supporters, so please use the form below to us know if you're interested in volunteering, have items to donate to an auction, or can offer any other support to the club.
