Hi everyone,


We have reached 50% of our fundraising goal! This is amazing!

We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of you that have genergously donated to our program. We are immensely grateful for the support you have showed for our team and car! There is still a lot of time left in our fundraiser so please keep trying to get the word out to others. We are currently working on our car and we believe this year could be one of the best, espcially with all the support!


Again, thank you all for your generosity!

Reached the 80% goal!

Hi everyone,


We just wanted to update you on the ChemE Car fundraiser. Support has SKYROCKETED and we reached another major milestone in our journey:

80% of the way to our goal!

Our team is currently in shock. We are truly thankful for the sponsorship all of our friends, family, colleagues, and alumni have provided. Your generosity is giving us the ability to bring many hardworking members on our trip to the National competition! Attending the National competition is an incredible experience and a privilege to attend. We are very excited all our donors believe in our team and car!


We will keep you posted with more updates within the next week. Again, thank you all for your support. The fundraiser is still active (till October 22nd), so PLEASE keep spreading the word! 




The ChemE Car @ UMD team

We've reached our goal.... but still need help!

October 06, 2014

We've hit our goal!!

Thank you to all of our friends, family, and sponsors that allowed us to acheieve our goal in such a short amount of time. We are very grateful for every single donation we have received. Each sponsor is an integral part of our team's future success!  We have been diligently working on our car trying to make it competition ready. This achievement is the ultimate confident boost! ChemE Car has NEVER gained this much support before. We want to make each and every one of you proud when competing in Atlanta. 



Our team still needs help! Our travel expense budget is $7,000.

With the current list of active members who have greatly contributed to the car, our travel expenses will total to $7,000. We are very appreciative of our current total, however, if we could fundraise just a little more, we could pay for our entire travel expense! Our remaining funds will be used to buy new parts for next year's car. Every year, we have to make two major changes to our car in order to compete in the following year's Regional and National ChemE Car competition. With such a large travel budet, we will have very little funds remaining to pay for these new alterations. If donors could please get the word out about our fundraiser to other friends, family, and coworkers, we would greatly appreciate it!


Again, we sincerely want to thank you ALL for the support we have receieved and making ChemE Car's first fundraiser a SUCCESS!
