Now you can make an online gift directly to The MCRC at our unique online giving form – no need to wonder where your gift is going exactly – this goes directly to the rugby club account. We need your help to cover travel expenses to Florida and hopefully California for the National Championship playoffs – only 4 games stand between us and an unprecedented 3rd national championship in 4 years BUT it will take a lot of hard work from the boys and the support of our parents, alumni and friends to make it all happen:
Any size gift will go a long way in helping the team and will be greatly appreciated – thank you for your support!
It costs $1,300 to cover the travel costs of each player. Each player is asked to contribute $300 to the trip so for a $1000 you can “Sponsor-A-Blue” and be responsible for one of our team members being able to participate in the National Championships – be it alone or with several friends we hope you will consider “sponsoring-a-blue”.
Big thanks to Middlebury’s development office for setting up this online form for us.
