Making a Donation to T.E.K. Robotics

What will my donation go to?

Your generous donation will cover many expenses required to maintain a non-profit robotics team including, but not limited to: parts for robots, educational materials for demonstrations, and registration for competitions.

Why sponsor robotics?

The U.S. is struggling to make advancements in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and to attract students to study these. Robotics is a great platform to promote all of these fields. T.E.K. Robotics is devoted to educating students on the fundamentals of robotics, increasing their aptitude to perform in the ever growing market for technology-based skills. Your contribution will go towards advancing tomorrow’s technology leaders.

Benefits
  • Name in our Engineering Notebook
  • Name/logo on the back of our team shirts, team banner, and robot
  • Advertising on our website and Facebook page
How will I be represented?

Robotics competitions are a fantastic way to get your name out to potential clients and employees. Many students in the field of robotics will be graduating at the top of their classes from top universities. Tournaments draw many industry leaders: having your company represented is a great way to increase your client base.

As a thank you for your contribution, we will proudly display your company name and logo on our shirts, robot, banners, etc. Your company name will be on display as we compete in the various VEX competitions every year.

While robotics can be a fun and exciting venture to teach and learn, it is also a very expensive one; this is why we need sponsors to help fund our resources.

Being a non-profit organization, T.E.K. Robotics’ sources of income come from the generous donations of our sponsors as well as fundraisers and other donations.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or making a donation, please feel free to email our Treasurer at roboticstek@gmail.com with any questions you might have.

(Legacy) Sponsorship Levels

We originally incentivized our sponsorship page with benefits to our sponsors, which we intend to keep as a faithful promise. However, we put less focus on this section now because it diverges from our values as an educational and philanthropic college robotics team. We state these benefits as a legacy continuation of our promises to our sponsors.
