I happened to notice on the Twitters that men’s hoops is trying to fundraise for their trip to Puerto Rico. When I looked at the total raised it was quite far from their goal. Now, I can’t speak for everyone on this board, but maybe part of the reason the number is low is because people would like to donate but don’t want to be harassed and or Aaron Harangued by the school afterwards. So, maybe we should set up a quick go-fund me for them here to see if we can get a few bucks into the team coffers. Any interest?
I was confused when I read it. Maybe jivehawk will know. Are they really looking for donations to the miami excellence fund and if you give $1000 you get to be on the calls with the coaches
Sorry, confused when you read my post? Or the one from the team?
Thanks for bringing this to the board.
The most immediate fundraising goal is to help support the team trip to Puerto Rico later this summer. For anybody giving $1,000 or more, you will be part of the Field of 68 Group, which has monthly in-season Zooms with the coaches.
Hi there, I was trying to set up a go fund me with the idea that the proceeds could go to the team. Some people (me included) would like to donate to the program without having to do so via a school related channel. I don’t need the phone calls ect. Just want to help with minimal friction!
Ps, not trying to be disrespectful to MU fundraising efforts. I am trying to help find alt sources of funding for those who like the relative anonymity go fund me provides.
No problem. Just giving the link for anybody wishing to see the Miami page and perhaps go that route.
Understood. Love you and admire you as well. Go MU!
