Dear Potential Sponsor,
Our program is entering our 16th season with the NCWA (National Collegiate Wrestling Association). In our previous 15 seasons, our team has earned 90 All-Americans, 12 National Champions, 9 SE Conference titles, 3 National Champion team titles, 1 National Dual Meet title, and a 179-63 dual meet record. Also in the team’s 15 previous seasons, the team has remained in the top 10 every year in a league that now boasts 140 different programs. In the Southeast Conference, UCF also remains an NCWA powerhouse earning 9 conference titles.
In 15 years, UCF has played a vital role in filling the gap between high school and college wrestling. Many of our wrestling alumni have gone to become Florida teachers, coaches, and business leaders; strengthening our Florida wrestling community. UCF answers the difficult question for a high school senior: continue their wrestling career out of state or end with high school wrestling. UCF has created a winning tradition that begins with opportunity.
At UCF, we believe that in order to maintain our position as a premier team in the NCWA we must travel and compete with the best teams in the country, both in the NCWA and the NCAA. With that mission in mind, we plan on traveling to events in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Nevada and Texas. We are proud to join top wrestling events in the United States this season, such as the Virginia Duals, NCWA National Duals, and the NCWA National Tournament.
In order to continue this effort, we need your support. We have asked each athlete to come up with names of individuals who may be interested in supporting college wrestling and your name came up. In order to continue to provide this educational opportunity our team needs to raise about $1,000 per athlete. All money raised will go straight towards offsetting travel costs for as many of our athletes as possible.
I am making a personal appeal that you financially support our team with a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more. Your financial support will help us get closer to this important goal that without your generosity just won’t happen.
Please consider using the web address below to contribute to our team's continued success. Our team’s high standard of success has not only produced a decade of college wrestling success, but also a team average GPA of above a 3.0. Your generosity continues to enable the UCF Wrestling Program to provide an outstanding competitive learning experience. We sincerely believe that your investment in our program will continue to produce dividends throughout the lives of our participants.
The team uses the national non-profit (501c3) accredited website, justgive.org. This website makes donating incredibly easy and secure. Your tax receipt is immediately produced and the website provides a yearly statement of all donations to non-profit organizations.
If you cannot afford to give very much, justgive.org also has the option to give as little as $10 per month. This is the equivalent of giving up one visit to a fast food restaurant a month; a small sacrifice for a great cause. No matter the size of the contribution, it helps and we appreciate your support.
