Wilmington Seahawks Hockey Booster Club, Inc
The Wilmington Seahawks Hockey Booster Club, Inc is a non-profit corporation whose sole mission is to assist in raising money to help the UNCW Seahawks hockey team compete at the intercollegiate level.
Despite how much the hockey program has grown in the last few years, the team receives little financial support from the school (approx. 8%), which makes funding a budget exceeding $125,000 extremely difficult. As a result, each player has had to pay upwards of $3,000 in dues per season to play the sport they love. In addition to being a student-athlete, many players have the added responsibility of maintaining a part-time or full-time job to offset the cost of playing. With players spending an increasing amount of time away from the rink, it can create a distraction for the team to improve its on-ice play and off-ice camaraderie.
This is where YOU can help make a difference. A charitable donation on your part, which is entirely tax-deductible due to the team's status as a non-profit organization, will have an immeasurable impact on the lives of our players, allowing them to focus on their academics & playing hockey instead of looking for work to help pay for their hockey. Any donations made will help offset operational costs (such as ice time, which is over $400/hour), travel costs (trips that require charter buses or air travel cost a minimum between 10,000 - $15,000), coaches pay, and equipment costs (jerseys, socks, pant shells, etc.).
You will have access to several benefits in return for your generous donation(s). The benefits are media visibility, advertising opportunities, free season tickets to our home games, and possibly more as the program grows. For more information about how we can tailor your donation/sponsorship to meet your needs - contact Coach Rich at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he will be happy to meet with you in person or over a Zoom call, to discuss the opportunities to help the team financially. Please realize that all donations can be earmarked to a specific cost if you desire. Your donation could go to the team's new jerseys, airfare for the team's trip to RIT in Rochester, the bus fare for the team's trip to Delaware & New Jersey in January, etc. Let us know, and we will make sure your money goes exactly where you want it to go.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Wilmington Seahawks Hockey Booster Club, Inc. The players and coaches appreciate your support every season and we hope to see you at the rink.
UNCW Seahawks home opener is September 8th, 2023 against High Point University at 10:00 pm.
