Why support Sunsetters?

For an added incentive, the American Solar Challenge is a nationally televised event covered
by PBS and shows like "World News Tonight" on ABC. The event has also been covered in
magazines such as Popular Mechanics, Sports Illustrated and Popular Science.
Methods of Sponsorship
There are two main ways of sponsoring Sunsetters in our effort:
- Adopt-A-Cell Campaign
- Technical Support
- Adopt-A-Cell Campaign:
One of the largest expenses involved in building the solar vehicle is the solar array.
To raise the money for the array approximately 1,000 cells are up for adoption to
individuals or businesses at $20 each. More than one cell can be adopted and all
monetary donations are tax deductible. This gift helps defray the cost of purchasing
the cell and incorporating into the array.
As an Adopt-A-cell participant you will be recognized on our web page and will receive
a certificate that will recognize you as an honorary team member and show the location
of your solar cell. An invitation to the unveiling of our vehicle will also be sent to
you. If you are willing to adopt a cell, then please fill out the backside of this
section and send your check to the given address. If you would like more information
about Sunsetters, simply complete the form and send it in.
