Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support the Pitt Men's Lacrosse Team, you may always do so here.
The Pitt Men's Lacrosse Team has very high aspirations for our 2016-2017 season following an extremely successful fall campaign. Our team has reloaded with a sensational group of freshmen that build upon a strong foundation of returners.
For more information please check out our website: http://mcla.us/team/pittsburgh/2017/schedule.html
As members of a large regionally-based conference, the CCLA, and an even larger national organization, the MCLA, we travel to different tournaments throughout the spring season to compete against top-tier schools where varsity lacrosse does not exist.
Since we are a club team, we do not receive Athletic funding from the University of Pittsburgh. Instead, we work extremely hard to offset the costs of our season through player dues, working Landmark Security Events, and canning at Steelers games. That being said, athletic programs are expensive and we struggle to make ends meet. This is why we need your help and support!
Without your support we will not be able to attend these necessary tournaments and attain the goals set forth for our program. Below you will find more information on the five tournaments we hope to fund through the proceeds from this campaign. Please note that 100% of all donations will go to our team, and all donations are tax deductible. Donors will receive a tax receipt in the mail from Pitt.
Any amount raised above our goal will be allocated to our general season expenses.
Thank you for your support and H2P!
