We’re asking our community to help us to fund our team’s 2019 competition season. These funds will help with competition registration fees, computers for our programmers, new tools for our shop, and more.
Kilroy Robotics, a Virginia based FIRST Robotics Competition team, needs quite a bit of funding in order to ensure that we meet our budget goals for this year.
This year’s estimated budget is $75,000. These funds will help pay for competition registration fees, new tools, computers, and raw materials for the robot.
In order to keep the cost of participating manageable for all of our students, we are aiming to raise as much of our budget as possible through a combination of sponsorships and fundraisers.
This is where you come in!
In order to support our students and help foster their technical passion and develop critical professional skills, while also minimizing student out-of-pocket expenses throughout the year, we are seeking donations. Any donation you can afford to make will be tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for helping Kilroy succeed this year!
Kilroy Robotics, also known as FIRST Robotics Team 339, is a high school robotics team with students from Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties in Virginia. Every year, about 50 of our students work together to design, construct, and program a robot to play a unique game during competition season.
