Iowa Formula SAE - Electric Race Car Fundraiser

STRETCH GOAL - $6,000! Help us reach our stretch goal of $6,000 by Friday, December 21! 


We are Iowa Formula SAE, a student organization at the University of Iowa where we work together using problem solving, engineering and teamwork to build and compete with an electric race car. We are a first-year team, planning to compete at Formula SAE North in Ontario, Canada in May of 2019. However, as we are a new team, there is a lot of parts that we do not have yet that are needed to build our car. From parts as critical as batteries and motors, all the way down to the bolts that hold everything together. This is why we need your help. With even a small donation, we will be that much closer to acquiring all the parts we need to build our car, and race next May in Ontario. Help us reach our goal, donate today!
