Why become a BlazerTV Backer?
BlazerTV.com is the only truly independent source for UAB Athletics news. All staff members have strong ties with UAB and strive to provide the best content possible. Your contribution will go to increasing the amount and quality of Blazer coverage we can provide. All the money we get out of this, we put right back into bettering our content. Our goal when starting this site was to make sure to provide a level of UAB coverage that fans and athletes deserved. Please help us strive towards that goal. In the process, you’ll get recognition on the BlazerTV Backer page on BlazerTV.com!
How much do I have to give?
We don’t require a minimum contribution but an amount of at least $10 is encouraged. Fans that donate at least $10 are officially listed on the “BlazerTV Backers” page and former athletes that donate at least $25 can have a short picture/bio listed on the page (as well as link, if applicable, to where fans can keep up with them). Recurring backers (backers that choose to give a certain amount on a continual basis) will have special recognition on the page. BlazerTV Backers listings stay up for a year past the last donation. There is no maximum donation and you can specify not to be listed on the BlazerTV Backer page if you’d like to remain anonymous. The Backer page only lists who donated, not how much. Donation amounts are never revealed publicly.
What, specifically, does my money go towards?
Advertising cannot currently provide the funds needed to provide the quality and amount of coverage we want to provide for UAB fans. Your contribution will help offset these costs. Upkeep and hosting of the website and content requires some cost. Covering away games can be expensive (travel, lodging, etc). We are also in need of some major equipment upgrades in order to provide the best content possible. There are a lot of ways your money will be used for the benefit of UAB coverage. If you would like to know more specifically, please e-mail Mitchell Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
