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.

Donate

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.

Scholarship donation – $225

Austin Canes is proud to announce that we made a $225 scholarship to the University of Miami. This satisfies our R.ecruitment of Students and Scholarship Fundraising requirement for 2016 and will help us earn a spending credit for the 2016-2017 year. Plus, it’s for a great cause!

Thank you to all those who donated on behalf of Austin Canes.

Don’t forget Global Networking Night on May 11th.

Tshirts: Order by October 2nd.

TSHIRT ORDER DEADLINE: Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 11:55pm.

We are placing one/final tshirt order. This is the last order for this year. (There is a minimum order and most of our members have ordered.)

  • Shirts are $15.
  • You must pre-pay to reserve a shirt.
  • You can order online for a tiny additional fee of $0.42. (In person orders are now closed.)
  • The extra couple of bucks from each shirt will be used for Austin Canes and/or donated to the general scholarship fund at UM.
  • Payments will be processed through As You Wish photography’s merchant accounts so we can accept payment by credit card.
  • We will work with Harry at All Canes to print the shirts. As this order is small, we will not ask for a rush during his peak season. We expect about a month turnaround.
  • Upon printing/shipping/arrival, shirts will be available for pickup at most Austin Canes events.

TSHIRT ORDER DEADLINE: Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 11:55pm.

College Fair

Kip and Lori volunteered to help the Admissions Officer at a college fair in Austin. It’s an important part of our club leadership to be involved in recruitment as well as scholarship fundraising. Hopefully, a few more Austin students will select Miami (and Miami will select them, of course) so that we can hold a big Summer Sendoff in August!

It’s great to be a Miami Hurricane from Austin!

Tshirts – 2nd order

We are going to place a second tshirt order! Place your order by Tuesday, April 16th to get a shirt.

We have less money in our alumni budget this time, so we tweaked the process:

  • shirts are $15
  • you must pre-pay to reserve a shirt (use the link below)
  • the extra couple of bucks from each shirt will still be donated to a Miami scholarship fund
  • payments will still be processed through As You Wish photography’s merchant accounts
  • upon printing/shipping/arrival, shirts will be available for pickup at most Austin Canes events

Austin Canes Tshirts – ordered

After a few battles over the design with Collegiate Licensing (who don’t “get it” that Austin is weird), we finally have an approved tshirt design and the order has been placed.

We will get them the week after Thanksgiving. For those who RSVP that they are coming to the All-ACC bar crawl, I will bring your shirt(s) with me so you can pick them up, there.
