Monrovia's Kings and Queens Robotics Team Needs Money to Get to World Championship



The Monrovia High Kings and Queens robotics team has been vigorously fundraising to cover the cost of the team's upcoming trip to compete in the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis on April 22-25.  Support from the Monrovia community has been enthusiastic but the team is still short of the needed $12,000 for lodging and transportation for the students, coaches, robot and materials. Please help if you can, and help spread the word.  Donations of any amount will get them closer to their goal.  Businesses who donate $500 or more can have their company logo displayed on the robot "Sir Lancelot" both during the competition and after he comes back to a well-earned retirement to be displayed at school functions.

The team has an online donation site at http://www.gofundme.com/kingsandqueens2015. Donations there can be made a credit card or by transferring funds from a bank account.  GoFundMe keeps about 8% of the funds to cover card and bank charges and their costs.

They also gladly accept checks mailed to the address below.   A note should be written on or included with the check that the donation is for the Kings and Queens Robotics Team:

MHS Math and Science Academy Boosters.
Attn: Monrovia High Robotics Program
PO Box 1887
Monrovia, CA 91017

The Monrovia High Robotics Program is a part of the MHS Math and Science Academy Boosters for tax purposes and all donations we receive pass through them.  The MASA Boosters are a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit charitable organization with ID number 27-3072381 and all donations to us are tax deductable and qualify for company matching-gift programs.
