Thank you for supporting the Hurricanes Booster Club

Dear Amherst Hurricanes Supporters!

We certainly find ourselves in unprecedented times. Who would have thought as we watched our winter sport teams battle in the playoffs last February that we would not be watching our Canes play again for quite a while!

While we realize that these are difficult times for everyone, we are reaching out to remind you that the Amherst Hurricanes Athletic Boosters are here, supporting our student-athletes even during the Covid-19 pandemic. We support our student athletes, who might not otherwise be able to participate in sports, with needed equipment, Hudl video recording (especially important when Canes Nation cannot attend games), our annual scholarship program, and many other items that support players, coaches, teams, and the entire athletic department.

We hear every day about how important sports are to our kids-- now more than ever! We know the support of the Hurricanes Athletics Boosters matters, but you can hear it directly from our student athletes in the video above.

Because of Covid-19,our 2020 fundraising efforts were severely hampered. We were not able to hold our annual Golf Tournament, which provides the majority of our funding, Homecoming, or any of our other planned fundraising activities. Now, we are asking for your support of our amazing student-athletes who are seeking opportunities for competitive activities in any way they can this year. As you consider your year-end gifts, please consider a gift to the Amherst Hurricanes Athletic Boosters, which is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

There are many ways to give. You may choose to support the Hurricanes Boosters by:

  • Gifting in a general way
  • Supporting a particular sport or sports
  • Donating to support the scholarship program
  • Supporting HUDL, the video software program for live-streaming, scouting, and recruiting
  • Combining your donation with the ARHS PGO to build new a new trophy case for the MANY awards our teams have garnered. Imagine the kids finally returning to schools to see their hardware proudly displayed. Something to look forward to!

Please consider donating to Amherst Hurricanes Athletic Boosters at:

P.O. Box 758

Amherst, MA 01002

If you would like to donate to a specific team, Hudl or the scholarship program please indicate in the memo/comments.
