In order to manufacture the designs we have created, which pushes the technological boundaries of this competition, we will need outside funding and contributions. Donations are more than appreciated to help see this project become a reality. No amount is too small.
Donations to the project can be made by following the Donate Now link and contributing to the CUDenver Odyssey Rover GoFundMe. No amount is too small as we will need as much as we can get in order to purchase parts, materials, manufacturing tools/equipment, and fund all of our team members' trip to Alabama for the competition in April 2018. All things considered, we are estimating the cost to be approximately $25,000.00 and we need help raising those funds. Once you have visited our GoFundMe page, wether or not you are able to make a donation, we would greatly appreciate if you could help us by sharing our GoFundMe page on social media. We appreciate all of the support we receive.
Material donations are more than welcome as well as monetary! We will need every bit of material that we can get as we will be machining and manufacturing 90% of the parts and components from scratch using our own, original designs. FOR MATERIAL DONATIONS: Please contact us at our team email address: or by using the "CONTACT" page.
