Are you not a company or business that would like to sponsor us? No worries, we still accept donations!

The Purdue Triathlon Club does what it can to support its members financially. In between studying and training, a considerable amount of our time and energy is spent organizing and running two races per year. The revenue from these races is used to offset the financial burden our members cope with.

In addition to tuition, room & board, books, etc... our members supply their own equipment (including bikes), pay for clothing, travel expenses, race expenses, etc. The Triathlon Club makes an effort to offset these costs with sponsorship deals and subsidized travel/race fees, however our resources aren't always enough.

Your financial donation will go a long way in supporting our student athletes, and will help them achieve their goals. To make an online donation to Purdue Triathlon Club, please fill out the form below. We appreciate any donation, thank you so much for your generosity!
