Alumni Charter

The objective of the Binghamton University Rugby Alumni (BURA) Charter is to provide details on how the BURA Undergraduate Rugby Fund will be administered.

The mandate of the Binghamton University Rugby Alumni (BURA) Undergraduate Rugby Fund is to provide direct financial support related to the on-field performance of the Binghamton University Rugby Club.

Examples of acceptable expenses are:

  • Rugby balls
  • Rugby training equipment (e.g. scrum sled, tackling pads)
  • Jerseys
  • Tournament entry fees
  • Travel expenses
  • Coaching expenses
  • Rugby clinics and camps

The specific goals for the BURA Undergraduate Rugby Fund for a given semester will be determined by a dialog among the Binghamton University Rugby Club Officers, the Binghamton University Club Sports Director, the BURA Donating Members, and the BURA Undergraduate Rugby Fund Advisory Board.

The fund is explicitly NOT intended to pay for:

  • Social activities
  • Subsidizing the life style of any member of the Club

Version 1.0 of the charter, which was published on April 4th 2011 and approved via a vote by the BURA can be read in entirety below:
