Join our With You Campaign!
Our fundraising campaign supports coaching, scholarships and program excellence.
During the last six months, our Foundation and friends have created unprecedented momentum. Since June we have raised more than $80,000 to support the Carolina Coaching Initiative.
Our next campaign: With You: A Carolina Rugby Campaign to support Coaching, Scholarships and Program Excellence launches Feb. 21.
Our funding priorities:
Coaching: Good coaching is the cornerstone of our success. The funds raised over the summer funded the position through this spring. We must raise $50,000 by March 31 to extend the coach's contract through next spring. We also need a steady monthly income stream to ensure the head coaching position continues in the future. We also want to establish a stipend program for our assistant coaches.
Scholarships: The Jeffrey S. Smolka Endowed Scholarship program, which was founded in 2015, has provided financial assistance to dozens of Carolina Rugby Players. We want to expand and support this program. It is valuable recruiting tool.
Alumni outreach and events: As we build the Carolina Rugby Foundation, we must continue to host first class events for alumni and recruits that extend beyond Columbia.
