Scroll down to donate for our new boat!

Since our team is primarily a self-funded team, we are incredibly thankful for all donations recieved. If you would like to donate you can do so by mailing us a check, using Venmo (@MSUwaterski), or PayPal below. Below we also have a list of items our team could use if you have any spares lying around. Everything is appreciated. As always, feel free to reach out if you have questions!

We do prefer checks (especially for larger donations) since PayPal will charge us 2.9% + $0.30 per donation. Write out checks to Michigan State Waterski Club, mail to TJ Lynch 632 W. Circle Dr. Rm 350, East Lansing, MI 48825 (address valid till 4/27/18). And shoot us a quick email at so we can keep an eye out for it.

Donate to our new boat!

Our team has decided to purchase a boat! We have some different goals below and we hope you can help us reach it! For donations, mailed checks, Venmo (@MSUwaterski) or PayPal work best.

Refer to paragraph above for info about mailing checks and PayPal.

We have set various fundraising goals for our team as listed below. We have picked out three boats, pictured below, that fit our different goals. We are still very open to other boats if you are able to find one that fits our team, in which we would be very appreciative of. Depending on how much we raise will determine the price range of our boat, but any boat we will buy will need to have low hours and speed control. Feel free to email us if you have other boat options or have advice for buying a boat. Thank you for any contributions, everything helps in taking our team to the next level!

Goal 1 - $15,000 - Our baseline goal for us to achieve the boat we need
Goal 2 - $25,000 - This would allow us to purchase a better boat, and would allow for a higher resale value
Goal 3 - $40,000 - This would allow us to purchase an incredible boat with great resale value for our team
Excess money raised will be put in an emergency fund used for repairs and maintenance.
