Donate to Send Kerrville Robotics to the World Championship!

We need your help to send 15 Kerrville students to compete on the world stage in robotics. Ranked #2 in the South and #53 in the world out of 10,000+ teams!

From little ol’ Kerrville, Texas. These students have earned support from the community. Let’s show them how generous Kerrville can be to students who work hard (5-6 hours per week since August) to learn engineering, programming, CAD, communications, design, and more.

The Kerrville Robotics Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so all donations are tax deductible.

This past weekend the Fellowship placed second in the Alamo Regional Competition in New Braunfels. Competing against teams from Austin funded by Dell, Amazon, and Google, the Fellowship held their own, feverishly repairing breakdowns between matches and looking for strategic alliances with other robot teams.

During one match, the Fellowship’s alliance earned 437 points, which was a world record for the event just a few weeks ago. This means their alliance scored right up there with the best performing robots in the entire United States!

If you are interested in supporting the Fellowship on their trip to Houston, please visit our GoFundMe page. The Fellowship receives donations from businesses and individuals through the Kerrville Robotics Alliance, a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving our community. They will need all the help they can get to transport 15 high school students, two coaches, the robot, and their pit area for four days and four nights. They will be competing with teams from all over the world at the event–China, Turkey, Jordan, and many more.
