Which academic department, program or organization is this project most closely associated with?

Note: University Advancement may work with you to help set your goal.

Ex: 20 home uniforms - $50 each, 20 away uniforms - $50 each, Total needed: $2,000

Please share any dates for conferences, tournaments, purchasing deadline, etc.

Ex: if you are fundraising to attend a tournament, can you still go if you don't reach your goal?

In other words, how many students will you have on your project team?

A team has 15 students and each has 100 email addresses to ask for a gift, their number is 1500.

How will you promote your campaign to them?
