Thank you 2018 team grant sponsors FIRST Robotics Competition


We’d like to send a big thank you to our Rookie and Hardship Grant sponsors: Argosy Foundation, a very generous anonymous donor (you know who you are!) and Boeing!


We also want to thank, once again, NASA, for their team grants, as well as our other top grant sponsors: Department of Defense, UTC, General Motors, 3M, Lockheed Martin, Medtronic, Ford, Bechtel, and Rockwell Automation!


These sponsors, along with many others, have made a big difference to our teams, and so also to our world. Their generosity helps keep FIRST running, and we can’t thank them enough!


Teams should also be thinking, as always, about how they can thank their sponsors themselves, now, and throughout the year. This video, which is part of our fundraising toolkit can give you some great ideas. And if you receive a grant administered by FIRST, you can send hand-written notes and other thank-you items to FIRST HQ, Attn: Team Grants, 200 Bedford Street, Manchester, NH 03101. We’ll be sure to pass it along.


Thanks so much once again to all our grant sponsors!
