#SaveTheRanch Campaign

Help the team survive past 2020….

On November 21st, we launched a 6-month campaign to help the Howdy Bots #SaveTheRanch! The purpose of this campaign is to help us make up for lost fundraising opportunities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a community team, we do not have reliable funding sources, only the generosity of individuals and businesses. Our goal is to raise $60,000 over the next 6 months. You can help our team to #SaveTheRanch in a variety of ways:

  • Donate to our team now by clicking the Donate button below!
  • Help us spread the word about the #SaveTheRanch campaign by sharing with your social media friends!
  • Does your company have a matching program for donations? You can double your donation with us!
  • Know of any businesses that might be willing to sponsor us or make a donation? Let us know – we would be happy to do a virtual demo and give a tour of our shop! Email us at [email protected].

The 2020 Howdython kicks off our #SaveTheRanch campaign!

Our third annual Telethon fundraiser took place virtually on November 21st. We livestreamed the event on FUN’s Twitch channel. You can watch the entire event right here!

If you aren’t familiar with how the Howdython works, it’s a 2-3 hour event in which anyone can call into our student-manned phone bank and pledge a donation to support the team. Other students act as live MC hosts and discuss different elements of FIRST and the Howdy Bots. We also present a series of comedic and educational student-produced videos.

This year, however, things were run a bit differently. Not only are the telethon’s inner workings completely virtual, but our success this year is more important than ever. To help us #SaveTheRanch, support the team by watching and donating to the Howdython, or donate now by pressing the button below!
