Newton Flag Football COVID-19 Fundraiser
Help keep flag football alive in Newton and get some great swag for the family!
About this campaign
Over the last 4+ seasons, the Newton Area Flag Football League has organized over 500 games for more than 1,250 local kids and their families. Our Spring 2020 season was looking to be our largest yet, with over 425 players registered as of early March. Now, however, the COVID-19 crisis threatens our very existence as an organization because we can't hold games this spring, and summer activities are still up in the air. While it looks like Fall 2020 should be a go, it is impossible for us know at this point what that will look like.
What this all means is that we won’t be able to keep serving all our teams, parents, coaches, and staff without community support. We are at a crucial juncture in our development as not only community members but also a small business that has very real costs that can not be recovered. We have been working actively with the City of Newton and other partners to not only survive in the short term but make material improvements in the long term so we can have a dedicated field space that would benefit the greater Newton community at large.
The harsh reality, however, is that because of COVID-19 our organization may not be able to weather this storm and continue to provide high quality experiences for our players and our families. Like most youth sports leagues, NAFFL uses registration payments from families in order to cover upfront costs, both fixed and variable. We purchase jerseys, field space, equipment, t-shirts, medals and trophies, insurance, LLC fees, website hosting, technology, marketing, officiating, training, taxes, and much more. A significant amount of tuition payments we have received have already been spent in advance of the Spring 2020 season, and we do not have large cash reserves mostly because we are a very lean operation with narrow margins.
To help us through this difficult period and hopefully have NAFFL around to host future seasons and tournaments, we hope you will consider buying some great swag and keeping us financially viable while we are cash flow negative. In addition to some awesome gear with our brand new logo, we will also post all of our donors' names and/or businesses to our website to recognize your contributions. We have partnered successfully with numerous Newton-area businesses in the past and are happy to do so moving forward.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us by email or phone. Thank you for your support and, as always, #letsgoflag(whensafe)!!
