Become a Team Sponsor

In order for us to sustain this valuable program and keep it available to all students, we need the help of our community. We hope you will consider contributing to our team in any way possible.

By supporting our team you are making an investment in the futures of our students, our community, and your company. FIRST Robotics offers many great experiences to prepare students for college and careers, but it requires significant funding to keep it running.

To enter a regional competition and purchase a kit of parts, it costs about $5,000. To enter the national competition, it costs an additional $5,000 plus the costs of transporting the team and shipping the robot. Our team’s annual operating budget is about $30,000.

Each year we anticipate competing in two regional competitions and the national competition – if we make it that far! There are many ways to help keep our team in operation. The different levels of sponsorship are listed below:

  • Platinum $3,000+
  • Gold $1000+
  • Silver $500+
  • Bronze $100-$499

In kind, donations of tools and materials are also gladly accepted.
