With registration fees and our fundraising efforts, the Flemington Falcons are able to host youth football and cheer programs in our community. The Falcons continue to use the fundraising dollars by investing in our uniforms and safety equipment for the benefit of all participating athletes. In 2016, the Falcons purchased new Cheer uniforms for our cheer teams. In 2017, the Falcons purchased new Riddell football helmets for all tackle teams. Between 2016 and 2017, the combined investment in uniforms and helmets exceeded $30,000. With the combined efforts of Falcon parents and the support and generosity from families, friends and the local community, we are able to keep our programs running strong.
For all participating families, the Falcons have two required fundraisers; Tagging and Calendar Raffle Sales. The Falcons Fundraising committee also arranges and plans other fundraising initiatives to support our organization.
Below are descriptions of the required and typical fundraisers the Falcons host throughout the year:
Each Falcon family (not athlete) is required to sell a pre-determined number of $10 raffle tickets. This is done in August and September. A winning raffle ticket is drawn each day during October and November. Cash prizes range from $40 - 200.
Athletes represent the organization at various businesses in the community by collecting cash donations to support the Falcons.
This is a fun way to help support the Falcons. We will be hosting dine-outs at local area restaurants throughout 2018. The Falcons will email information on each event to all families.
During August, the Fundraising Committee organizes team bake sales within the Falcons organization.
Five Below and Retail Shopping Events
Every year we partner with Five Below for a fundraising opportunity. By using the Falcons Five Below flyer, the Falcons receive a percentage of all sales! Share the flyer with your friends, family and neighbors to help increase sales. In 2018, we will also be doing a shopping event with Charming Charlie's and some other local businesses.
Spirit Wear Sales
The Falcons provide a great selection of Falcon themed spirit wear! Spirit wear is sold at practices, home games, as well as sold online through links set up for our items.
Optional Fundraising Drives
The Falcons Fundraising Committee also designs optional fundraising drives to support individual athletes headed to nationals or toward future program costs. In 2017 optional fundraising included a frozen dessert sale, and a holiday wreath sale for all regular season athletes. For our teams traveling to compete at Pop Warner National Competition, we offer t-shirt and poster sponsorship opportunities.
Many corporations support employee giving through volunteer hours, United Way or other non-profit campaigns, and Matching Funds. If you are aware of any programs that can contribute to the Falcons through these avenues, please let us know!
There are several sponsorship options available for both businesses and individuals. Each sponsorship level offers different advertisement venues, such as links on our new website, banners at home games, ads in our game day programs and recognition of our sponsors via announcements at our home games. If you or someone you know is interested, please forward to them our Sponsorship Letter form.
While we are asking our community to support us, we also feel very strongly about giving back to our community. We will be supporting our community through various projects throughout the year. More details to come!
Additional Fundraisers may be added throughout the year. Please visit the website for News and Updates!
