Scholarship Fundraising for ’16-’17

Help Austin ‘Canes build a scholarship by donating on/before Friday, April 8th!

P.R.I.D.E. Goals

As an alumni club, we are expected to meet several programming goals:

  • P.rofessional/Social Networking
  • R.ecruitment of Students and Scholarship Fundraising
  • I.bis Sports Related Events
  • D.evotion to Community
  • E.ducation for Alumni

It’s a pretty easy list of goals, but as a tiny club, we don’t always get the chance to check R off the list.

  • We were ineligible to host a recruitment-related Summer Sendoff due to too few students from this area going to UM.
  • No college fairs in the area had a Miami presence or utilized alumni volunteers.

In order to meet our final P.R.I.D.E. requirement, we are raising money for a scholarshipDon’t worry! We aren’t going to bore you with a cocktail event and silent auction. 😉 Instead, we’ve made it easy to donate online through one member’s small business account.


So, please give a little scholarship money to help our club…and know that it’s for a good cause, too.

The fine print

(After the 2.75% fee), 100% of your donation will be used to support Austin Canes’ donation to the University of Miami General Scholarship fund in the name of Austin Canes. This is one of our P.R.I.D.E. requirements and will help us remain in good standing with the university’s alumni office. (We are not a 501c; to make a tax-deductible donation, please donate to the University of Miami directly.)
The charge to your account will show from As You Wish photography. A report of all “sales” will be provided to the board members for complete transparency between As You Wish and Austin Canes.
