We appreciate your visit to our donation / sponsor page. We are available to discuss all levels of sponsorship of our amazing program. Please email info@leapforstem.org or mail your anonymous donation to our address below.

We appreciate your consideration!

FIRST® Robotics consists of transformative programs that introduce children aged 6-18 to the fun experience of problem solving by applying science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), with the hope that these young people will eventually seek secondary educational opportunities and explore STEM careers. We hope you will support these exciting student programs in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) that make science, technology, engineering and math as cool for kids as sports. We call it a “Sport For The Mind”.

Can you participate as an official sponsor of a FIRST® Robotics Season?

We think you could be a good fit because:

The program focuses heavily on preparing the next generation of engineers in the region. We attract a significant audience of target-market adults. Through a partnership with FIRST in Texas Foundation, we reach beyond the Rio Grande Valley to include the areas of Laredo, Corpus Christi and San Antonio metro areas for our “coopertition” based robotics program. We are MORE THAN ROBOTS!

In exchange for your support, your organization can be featured on print and electronic regional advertising and promoted at trainings and events throughout the season. Additionally, we will recognize your organization at FIRST-RGV FIRST® Robotics events, which draw over 1,000 cheering fans – the culmination of months of student research, robot design, building and programming. For specifics on Sponsorship Benefits, please review the Benefit Forms for Jr.FLL, FLL, and FTC below. Keep in mind that these are Cash Benefit Forms, and that there are many ways to sponsor programs through In-Kind Donations that will receive sponsor benefits as well.

If you are interested in supporting this dynamic program that cultivates tomorrow’s math and science heroes, please consider becoming a season sponsor at one of the levels described on the linked sponsorship benefits forms. Your company or community group can choose to support Rio Grande Valley FIRST® Robotics at many levels. Please contact us, and we will be happy to work with you to identify the level that best fits your needs. All monies raised to support FIRST RGV will remain within our service area to specifically support our teams!

Your generous donation to FIRST® Robotics in the Rio Grande Valley will help ensure students have access to the unique learning experiences we offer through our programs. Through the resources our sponsors provide, they are helping build the school-to-career pipeline that will provide the motivation and opportunities to inspire young people to become the next generation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals.

Our need is supported by stats!

We are in one of the poorest areas of Texas. The Rio Grande Valley has been named the poorest community for the last several years which make supporting a program such as ours, very important.
