Donations to the Teams
A very simple and easy way to support the USAFA Men's and/or Women’s Rugby Team is to join the Zoomie Rugby Booster Club. As mentioned on the home page, the sole purpose of the Zoomie Rugby Booster Club is to support all things Air Force Academy Rugby. The Zoomie Rugby Booster Club is a IRS determined, 501(c)(3) public charity and not affiliated with the US Government. The booster club has the direct access and ability to give donations to the Zoomie Rugby teams for targeted purposes by using what the US Government calls a "gift in kind" mechanism. Players, coaches and staff are not allowed to solicit donations from anyone...but the Booster Club, as a public charity and private organization, is allowed to do just that when a need, whether financial or material, is identified.

The Booster Club maintains three separate accounts to which supporters can donate to.
The General Fund is a universal fund used to support areas of common items and areas required by both the Men’s and Women’s Teams. Upon approval by the Board of Directors, funds can be transferred from the General Fund to the Men’s and Women’s fund provided that at the time of disbursement each of the Funds receive an equal amount transferred. For example, if the Men’s team required a $500 transfer from the General Fund to the Men’s Fund for a tournament fee, the $500 would also be transferred from the General Fund to the Women’s Fund.
The Men’s Fund is earmarked specifically to support Men’s Rugby needs. Donations to the Men’s Fund cannot be transferred to the General Fund or Women’s Team.
The Women’s Fund is earmarked specifically to support Women’s Rugby needs. Donations to the Women’s Fund cannot be transferred to the General Fund or Men’s Team.
