As an organization financially independent from UC Santa Cruz, we are completely responsible for our own fundraising and budget. All donations would go directly towards fabricating, testing, and transporting our next ROV. In addition to building an ROV, our team also helps students learn hands-on skills including Computer Assisted Design (CAD), programming, machine shop skills, community outreach, and fundraising. Should you choose to sponsor us, you will be directly supporting the next generation of engineers and problem-solvers. As an affiliate of the UCSC Baskin School of Engineering, all donations made to us (monetary and in-kind) are tax deductible.
Thank you so much for your support this Giving Day. With your help, we were able to far surpass our wildest goals for this year. We raised $7,750, which will fund our team well through this year and allow us to make some investments into hardware that will be useful to us for years to come. Truthfully, it would not be possible for us to develop our ROV without your support, and we hope to make you all proud.
