Greetings Ute fans,

Utah Men's Lacrosse Team needs your support for the 2014 season more than ever!

As you may be aware, Men's Lacrosse is not an NCAA varsity sport at the University of Utah and therefore has no formal affiliation with the Utah athletic department or their financial resources. As such, our team's annual budget of over $125,000 is 100% self-funded. In 2013, over 80% of our funding comes from annual dues paid by our players, many of who work multiple jobs in addition to being full time student-athletes to cover the cost. The rest of our funding was raised through ticket and merchandise sales, camps and clinics, extensive fundraising efforts, and our generous individual and corporate supporters.

This year our team will take on one of the best schedules ever put together for our team including games against 9 of the pre-season top 25 ranked teams. This schedule is essential for our team to get the national exposure, and have our team playing the level necessary to achieve our goal. Unfortunately, with such a schedule we are faced with a significantly higher travel budget than in past years so we are really depending on the generosity of our many supporters.

To help us fund the significantly higher travel costs we face this season, a very generous donor has stepped up and will make a matching donation, dollar-for-dollar for each other donation we can get in the month of February!

As such, I ask you to consider supporting our program this year, and let you know that during the month of February your support would go extra far in helping our program. The Utah Men's Lacrosse Club is a registerred 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Utah so all donations are tax deductible.

Listed below are the ways you can get involved and support our program:
- Simply donate to our program and maybe even join our "Booster Club just by clicking "Donate" below.
- Are you an Alumnus? Join our awesome Alumni Club!
- Become a Sponsor for our program with various goods & services.
- Advertise in our various media outlets. (website, media guide, schedule poster, game broadcasts, etc.)

Remember, our program is a registerred 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Utah so all donations are tax deductible and likely qualify for matching gifts programs offered by many businesses.

Thank you for your support of Utah Lacrosse, and Go Utes!
