Harvard University Cycling Association Funding
The Harvard University Cycling Association (HUCA) is both a club
sport and a racing team. Our club introduces students to the sport
of cycling and allows new and advanced riders to work on skills
and develop technique for both racing and recreational riding. In
the springtime, our team competes in the 12-week Eastern Collegiate
Cycling Conference racing season. Sustained by the continuing generosity
of our supporters, HUCA has grown from 16 racers in 2000 and 20
racers in 2001 to 40 racers in 2002. This year we are anticipating
sending over 50 racers, out of 75 riders to at least three weekends
of racing across the north-east. Last year, the team won the ECCC
and Ivy League Championships, came in 9th at National Championships
and was recognized by USA Cycling, with a USACDF Center of Excellence
award as one of the best-run collegiate clubs in the country.
We could not have accomplished these goals without the help of our
supporters. Harvard University does not support HUCA as a NCAA sport.
The vast majority of our budget comes from donations and corporate
support. Each race weekend, HUCA covers race fees, transportation,
and hotels for our student members. We would like to be able to cover
meals as well and find other ways to reduce the financial barriers
to entry into our sport. This year, because the National Championships
will be held in California, HUCA is facing an even greater challenge
to raise funds for travel to the event.
If you or your company are interested in sponsoring the team, here
are a few ways you can help out. All donations are tax deductible.
- Cover a rider’s race entry! $13.
- Cover a rider’s race weekend! $80.
- Cover a rider’s season! $800.
- Cover a weekend for the team! $2,400.
- Cover a squad’s season (e.g. mens/womens
development team)! $4,000.
- Send the team to nationals! $8,000.
- Be title sponsor of the team (cover
half the season)! $15,000.
