Our Sponsors

Because MIT Cheer is a Club Sport, it is run by students, for students. This means our primary source of funding is through donations; we have very few ways of receiving monetary support from MIT. As always, support through email and keeping up with our online updates is always appreciated. However, the biggest impact you can make is through monetary donations to our organization. Any amount is appreciated and since we are a non-profit organization, all donations are tax-deductible.

This page is dedicated to honor those in the MIT Cheerleading Community who we would like to thank for contributing to our fund. The funds these donors* have provided have enabled us to provide equipment, uniforms, instructional services, and more for the members of the MIT Cheerleading Squad. Words cannot express our gratitude to each and every one of them.


Sponsor Mission
Randall Beans The company, Randall Beans, is starting their new campaign to support and power amateur athletics with their organic, homegrown variety of beans. These grown and made in America beans are fueling athletes across the country in an effort to spread the word about the nutritious effects that beans have on the body. Randall beans is owned by Meredith Keating and has been in operation since 1876. In regards to this “Powered By Beans” movement, Randall Beans is very excited to begin its partnership with MIT Cheerleading as a supporter of amateur athletics and has graciously donated $1,000 to the MIT Cheerleading squad in an effort to become our very first maroon level donor!
