Dear Wyoming Business,
We write to bring you up to date on some exciting developments with the University of Wyoming Men’s Ice Hockey Team.
We are accomplishing this even though we are an ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association) sport responsible for our own budget and revenue. We get funding from the University Campus Recreation Department, not the Athletic Department as many assume, but our major income sources are ticket sales, fundraising events, the players themselves (we are forced to require player fees of $900+ to play which we do not want to have to raise) and generous donors, advertisers, and fans.
Despite our best efforts and the financial support of our families and friends, we will be short by $25,000 this budget year. We already have donors ready to give $1,000 each, but we need to spread our donation base to the wider business community both in Laramie, throughout Wyoming, and throughout the region to companies who have an interest in, or scout employees out of the University of Wyoming.
We are asking you to consider a donation through our university account, making it a deductible donation to the extent allowed by law. We can solve our money worries and concentrate on playing quality hockey, our academics, and keeping team fees low with these donations. It is shown that during the season of a successful athletic team, GPA’s are significantly higher.
We hope to hear from you. Please think about donating to the University of Wyoming Hockey Team. We promise you our gratitude for your support, the best hockey we can play, the highest level of University and State representation, and academic commitment. Thank you in advance for your support of the University of Wyoming Men’s Ice Hockey Team.
