DRFC Clubhouse Renovation Campaign

March 2016.

Greetings Detroit Rugby Football Club (DRFC) members, families, friends, and associates. 

As many of you have already heard, in December 2015 the DRFC purchased property (21618 Van Dyke Ave., Warren, MI) with the intent to develop the building into the DRFC clubhouse—serving our membership and the communities that we intersect with. 

As a result of individuals’ generosity, fundraising, careful planning, and management of club savings over the past 20+ years, the DRFC was able to purchase this property without incurring any related debt. Even though this is great news, the purchase is only a start towards the renovation of the building into a first-class clubhouse. Much legwork and elbow-grease remains to be undertaken, as well as capital raised to fund the project. Presently, the club has invested approximately $98,000.00 in the purchase of the property, repairs required for our Certificate of Compliance (city of Warren), and general building maintenance/repairs in preparation for renovations.

Driving forward, we need your help. This February (2016), the DRFC initiated the DRFC Clubhouse Renovation Campaign in order to raise additional capital necessary to help fund the building’s renovation. We invite you to download (DRFC Clubhouse Renovation Campaign) and review this document which outlines the renovation and campaign details, then decide for yourself how you can become involved with this exciting and transformative project. You can also download an individual campaign pledge form (Campaign Pledge Form) as an interactive PDF that can be filled out and emailed (email link: back to us.

Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions, and we would welcome the opportunity to sit down individually and discuss the possibilities.

Best regards. Cheers!
