Men's Rugby Challenge: 250 gifts made today will unlock a $20K gift for Men’s Rugby!
The Men’s Rugby team, also known as the SCUTS (Santa Clara University Touring Side), is one of the oldest sports programs here at Santa Clara University with over 100 years of history and hundreds of alumni around the world. The SCUTS are a tight knit family and network that not only last during our time in school but into our future careers as well. Competing in one of the toughest conferences in college rugby, we are tested week in and week in the pursuit of a National Championship. The pursuit of this goal relies heavily on the support from our donors for travel, equipment and other expenses. With your generosity we can continue to move forward and build upon every year's success and continue the culture that we strive to embody.
“Being a member of the SCUTS, Club Sports and the Santa Clara University Men’s Rugby Program has shaped not only my college experience, but also myself into the person I am today. I am very thankful for the opportunity to play rugby for a club with such an outstanding alumni base and rich history. The Day of Giving is a critical part of continuing our team's growing success and national recognition. We operate massively from the support of our great alumni community, and I am excited to soon join the alumni and continue to support the SCUTS grow after I have graduated from Santa Clara. On behalf of the players, coaches, and alum, thank you for supporting the Santa Clara University Men’s Rugby Program and club sports." — Sam Wheeler, SCUTS President, '23
