Support the MSU Fencing Club

MSU Fencing Club LogoMichigan State University Fencing Club is a club sport that is open to all MSU students, regardless of their background in the sport. Throughout the year, our club participates in multiple tournaments across the Midwest; participation is paid for by both the club and the individual fencers. But there are two larger tournaments that happen at the end of the spring semester that cost significantly more than most tournaments. These tournaments are the Midwestern Fencing Conference (MFC) and the College Fencing Championship (CFC). This is our main focus for this donation project, and we need your help in order to go.

Because we are a club sport, we do not receive much money from the university, and it is up to us to raise the funds in order to get our dedicated fencers to these tournaments. Our club does our best to supply our members with sufficient equipment to utilize when training and learning this sport. But sadly, fencing is a sport that requires a lot of money for new equipment, repairs, and club events, so most of the money we raise individually goes toward that. With all the money that is put into running a club, it leaves us with not a lot to work with to help out with tournaments, especially ones as expensive as the MFC and CFC tournaments. 

All donations will go directly to funding these two tournaments. This fundraiser will help us cover the tournament fees and all the expenses that are involved in traveling and lodging. These are huge tournaments that our fencers look forward to every year, and we need your help to allow us to compete.

Your Support Will Make a Big Difference

This fundraiser is set up to help MSU students participate in these very large, expensive, and important tournaments. The money raised in this fundraiser will allow us to send our best fencers to some of the most important and competitive tournaments in their fencing career. In the MSU Fencing Club, we want to give each and every member of our club an equal opportunity to participate in these tournaments based on their skill and involvement with the club. We do not want money to be an obstacle that could prevent certain students from fencing in these tournaments, so please show your support and help our fencers reach their goal!

Project Budget

Tournament costs are extremely expensive when you add up the costs of tournament fees, lodging, travel, food, and other necessities. Some of these tournaments can be extremely far, and lodging can be quite expensive based on the area we are staying in. These tournaments are also multi-day, so our lodging has to be relatively close to the tournament location, and overall costs can be pricey.

With your help, we will be able to hopefully pay for our fencers trip, or at least make these tournaments affordable for our skilled and dedicated club members. Our club believes that those who participate in these tournaments should be chosen based entirely on skill and dedication to the club, and no one should be left behind because of the lack of financial means to compete. With your generous donations, we will be able to reach our goal.
