|2011 New Zealand Tour|
In September of 2011, the Oregon State University men's rugby club will be touring New Zealand including Hamilton, Wellington, Queenstown, and Christchurch. New Zealand is the latest tour for the club, which has given the opportunity to a number of players to see new parts of the world and enjoy the game of rugby overseas. Making a tour like this happen is no small feat, and the club is working hard to raise money to cover the costs. Below are a number of ways you can help send OSU rugby to New Zealand.
Donate online to the OSU Foundation
Donating to OSU Rugby is now easier than ever! You can now donate securely online to both the OSU Rugby Team Fund and the Valley Memorial Rugby Endowment Fund through the OSU Foundation website. The Rugby Team Fund which is a separate fund to be used for the upcoming tour to New Zealand. The Endowment Fund helps to build our endowment through the Patrick Wayne Valley Memorial Endowment Fund. The New Zealand trip is an amazing opportunity for the young men on the team and for those who have had a chance to tour themselves in the past, hopefully you remember the generous donations that allowed the club's previous tours. Every dollar helps, and your donation tax deductible come tax season. Thanks in advance for your support.
