The life blood of every successful rugby club are its Supporters. While players pay dues to pay for training pitch and game rentals, it is only with the support of our Alumni, Alumnae, and Supporters that keep the figurative lights on for the Club.
Your generosity goes directly to support the Houston Athletic Rugby Club's mission of providing an outlet to develop and promote the game of rugby in the Greater Houston Area. We do this by providing playing opportunities for our player members, training our members to become coaches and referees for all levels of rugby, and directly and indirectly supporting the many Youth/High School Rugby Organizations/Schools in the area. Your membership dues go directly to helping pay for new equipment, new gear, and helping to defray travel costs to our players when we are required to travel interstate to play matches.
As a Alumni/Social Member of HARC, you are a member of the Club. As such you have all the same rights as our player members to steer the direction of our Club. You will have full voting rights at the Club's Annual General Meeting and have access to all the same opportunities our Player Members have, short of participating in trainings and matches.
As a thank you, depending on your level of Membership, you will receive gifts so that you can proudly display your support of our Club.
And of course, HARC, Inc. (dba the Houston Athletic Rugby Club) is a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization as determined by the IRS. This means your donations/membership fees are fully tax deductible (minus the costs of any gifts given in return).
The whole Leadership and Player Members of HARC thank you for your continued generosity and support of our Club.
