Let the Fundraising Begin

Three Fundraisers, Two Weeks, One Goal

It's fundraising time. We are going to try something new this year. Instead of holding fundraisers throughout the season, we are going to try to get all three of our major fundraisers done in two weeks, with one clear goal. We need to raise $75,000 for the 2021-22 season.

It cost approximately $1,100 per player to cover all expenses for the year.

Here's how we do it:

(1) DIRECT DONATION REQUEST FOR $650 (Goal - $35,000)

For less than $2.60 per day, for the 250 days a year, on average we see your student-athlete, you can help us reach our goal of fifty-three (53) families donating $650. Here is a breakdown of what the $650/year covers.

$200 - Falcon Gear & Uniforms

Each student-athlete will receive two (2) pair of shorts, eight (8) shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants and a bag. They will be the most frequently used items in your child's closet, as we use them in each of the 250 days we will be together. Your donation will also allow us to purchase one new set of uniforms, our first addition in three seasons. That allows us to pass down another set. If you are on the JV/Freshmen team, take a look at the condition of the uniforms. In addition to wear and tear, we don't have enough matching numbers or extras for the new players we anticipate adding over the next few weeks.

$200 - Year Round Strength & Condition Program

Todd Durkin has been and continues to be our strength and conditioning coach. He manages all training programs, nutrition, allows our club team to use his facility, provides six to eight trainers for summer workouts, and manages off-season workouts for all team members. Todd Durkin does not charge us. We pay pennies on the dollar to us his facilities. We use the remainder of the funds to purchase equipment.

$250 - Season Expenses

The remaining portion covers all in-season expenses, including but not limited to:

  1. Coaches Compensation (above the 19.5 units provided by district) - $25,000

  2. Falcon Gear - $15,000

  3. Equipment - Sleds, Pads, Practice Jerseys, Footballs, Cones - $12,500

  4. Game Day Video / Hudl - $7,500

  5. Banquets - $5,500

  6. Safety Equipment (Additional Helmets / Shoulder Pads) - $5,000

  7. Insurance, Tax Prep, Fees, Web Site - $3,500

IMPORTANT - No #FalconFootballFamily member will go without ANYTHING, EVER, if their family is not in position to donate. We will provide everything to everyone. We are grateful to families in position to donate more than the $650 requested, to help cover the costs for everyone.


The kids take care of the next one, selling them throughout the community.

This will be our third year selling the very popular discount cards with savings on local Scripps Ranch businesses. On average, we sell over $20,000 worth, year-after-year.

Discount cards were distributed today (Saturday, August 21st)


(3) VERTICAL RAISE - Email Fundraising Campaign (Goal - $15,000)

Each year we use an email campaign, sending donation requests via email to extended family members and friends. We using Vertical Raise to carry out this fundraiser which started today. Your child started this fundraiser today (August 21st).
