random deafsports thoughts

fewer deaf teams having football teams leads to fewer
scheduled football games.

This trend is not good.

Gallaudet athletics

Gallaudet athletics launches fundraising campaign

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University athletics department launched its
first online fundraising campaign to benefit Bison student-athletes. The
campaign kicked off on Tuesday, May 7, at the annual sports banquet and
will last until September. The goal of the campaign is $56,000 within a
four-month period.

“This campaign is founded to support our athletics programs at Gallaudet
University. The money raised will enable our student-athletes and their
teams to have their best season yet,” said Gallaudet Athletic Director
Victor Mansure. “Every dollar raised makes a real difference. Anyone can
give to the campaign!”

Gallaudet has partnered with MobileCause, who helps non-profits attract
more donors and inspire giving with its fundraising and donor engagement
software and digital marketing services. MobileCause is trusted by
thousands of non-profit organizations.

“Securing a broad base of support from our community demonstrates our
value and brings more awareness to Gallaudet Athletics,” added Mansure.
“We are a tax-exempt organization under IRC 501(c)(3) and contributions
are tax deductible as donors will receive a tax receipt moments after
making their gift.”
