Fundraising & Sponsorship Information

 Rugby is a fun and engaging sport for athletes of all ages and backgrounds.

While we strive to keep costs as low as possible, the reality of a regional travel schedule with national championship tournaments is often challenging for our athletes.

Budd Bay RFC routinely seeks fundraising and sponsorship opportunities for our players to help offset some of the costs so they can concentrate on playing the game.

Sponsorship Information

Budd Bay RFC is a great place to promote your business in the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater area! The club is composed of seven teams - the Buffaloes (adult men), Bandits (adult women), Barbarians (U-19 boys), U-17 Barbarians (U-17 boys), Steelheads (U-19 girls), a co-ed 7/8th grade team, and a co-ed 1st-6th grade team. Each team typically has 20 active players, plus a number of coaches, coordinators, and alumni.

Our travel schedule has the teams regularly covering all of Washington State, as well as league matches in as far away as Bend, Eugene, and Boise. In addition, each of our teams have traveled to national tournaments, taking them to exotic locales such as Southern California, Texas and Arizona.

We support a wide range of sponsorship opportunities, from a large Premier option, to smaller packages designed to meet your specific needs. All sponsorship packages include listing on our website, which all players must visit to register. In fact, our website has had stats counter hits since July 1st, 2011!

Please review the listed Sponsorship Packages, and let us know if one works for you. If not, we will work with you to find a solution that meets your needs! You may also review our Marketing Guide for further information. When you're ready, email sponsors@buddbayrugby to get your name out to the rugby community!

Fundraising Information

Players are encouraged to participate in any of our fundraising programs, including:

  • coffee sales
  • Car Washes: Sell tickets for car washes in our local area or put together your own event. See link for more details.
  • "Rent-a-Rugger" program, designed to provide service to a requesting party by the team, or a umber of the members. Discuss this option with your Team Manager.
  • team gear sales (shirts, wristbands, etc)

Some of these options (such as coffee sales) are year round efforts, while others (such as t-shirts) may involve a concentrated push by a specific team.

If you are proposing a tshirt, or other team-specific gear item, please discuss the proposal with your team manager. The club also has relationships with local vendors to help with screen printing, embroidery or any gear needs. Please ask us *before* soliciting a new vendor.

100% of team fundraiser monies are reserved for the team raising the funds and are used to offset the travel and other operational needs of the teams (field rentals, equiptment, jerseys, etc).

Budd Bay RFC is a 501c3 organization, meaning many of our fundraising efforts may be tax deductable.
