Recently a long time supporter and friend of Darfur United, made a sizeable donation from his Adult Soccer League team. When I contacted him about how he was able raise such funds, he said it was the easiest fundraiser yet! So easy, that I’m pretty sure any adult league team, or youth team for that matter, could do it.
Here are the details:
- Using the theme of our Kicks and Hope Tournaments, our friend challenged his teammates to donate for every goal they scored during their 13-week season, including playoffs. Remember, your donations are 100% tax deductible!
- They decided to donate $10 for every goal scored because that’s the cost of sending one Darfuri youth to the Darfur United Soccer Academy for an entire year!
- The team found a local matching sponsor to double their total at the end of the season.
To make this even more appealing for your teammates, Darfur United will award a DU jersey and certificate to the Golden Boot winner of the team!
What do you think? Are you in?
We’ve made it easy for your teammates, the matching sponsor, and friends to give and get involved. You can “start a campaign” on our online donation site. It only takes five minutes and you’ll have your very own webpage and resource to share with others!
