Adopt and Donate

The team is currently fundraising in order to get the parts needed to compete in the 2017 Formula Sun Grand Prix and to build the next generation vehicle, Gato Del Sol VI. Part adoption is an easy way for non-corporate supporters to make as small or large a donation as desired along with feeling a personal connection to the car. Even adopting one or two can help us save costs!

Gato Del Sol VI needs new battery cells, solar cells, and tires plus a nominal number of replacements at a price of ~$25 to $150. This will go towards purchasing the parts and for their preparation to go on the car.

All donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

For adoptions of $100 or more, the contributor’s name will be placed in the Supporters section of our website.

To contribute today, you can give online at Under "Gift Information" first select Engineering, second select Solar Car Team Fund.

Or to mail in your adoption, download the Adopt-a-Part form.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
