Support the Team
ASU Men’s Lacrosse continues to need your support for the current season and beyond. The team has a rich history having been on campus since 1968, winning WCLL Championships in 1995 and 1997, the SLC Championship in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and making it to the MCLA Division I Final Four in 2008 and 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. The team also participated in the national tournament in 2015 and 2016.
As many of you are aware, we are not recognized as a varsity sport and have no formal affiliation with the ASU athletic department. Because of this, over 50% our funding comes from dues paid by players, some of whose parents can’t afford to pay for their son to play lacrosse with us, and the other 50% through fundraising and generous supporters like you! We estimate that it will cost $225,000 and up to operate the team for one season. Our largest expense is travel. In addition to our normal season schedule, we are planning our eighth consecutive trip to the MCLA National Championship Tournament in May.
We also need to develop financial support programs to support an enhanced scholarship program. This is needed to enhance our recruiting efforts and support worthy student athletics that do not have adequate financial resources to pay all their dues.
For more information about our 2016 budget and our projected 2017 budget check out our Annual Report. Our 2017 Annual Report will be available in September of 2017.
The ASU Men’s Lacrosse Club has 501(c)3 status from the Internal Revenue Service. This means that you can make tax deductible contributions directly to our club and team. We also qualify for matching gifts programs supported by many employers. Please consider a tax deductible contribution. Checks should be made payable to ASU Men’s Lacrosse Club and mailed to 2420 W. Onza Ave. Mesa, AZ 85202. A receipt will be mailed to you.
We must also attract corporate sponsorship. We can offer advertising opportunities with our media (website, media guide, schedule poster, etc) and at our home games. Sponsorship can make a difference by helping provide safer travel, better equipment, and greatly easing the financial burden on students. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you and expand on what’s involved in running our program.
