Why donate to our football team?

You should donate to our cause because our kids are learning the fundamentals of working as a team. I want them to have a chance at feeling like they belong to something greater than themselves. The majority of my kids have never been on a team of any sport before. They have never had a jersey or something that belongs to them that they earned through working together with others. I just want to give them that chance. 

Below is a list of current needs 


Wish List Qty Est. Price
T-Shirt 60 1,000
Football Markers 6 50
Scoreboard 1 20
Down Box 1 100
Flags 12-16 80
Awards 1 200
Party Budget 1 500
Totals   1,950


-My goal is to get the Jersey cost to about $16-$18 a unit

-Football markers will be important so that we can mark off our end zone

- Down box is important for marking which down our team is on. 

-The current flags we are using are old and we don't have enough. A new set of 12 is needed.

- I would really like a budget for awards because the kids work so hard and I really want to reward those who excel with a trophy. We also plan on having a super bowl and all star game.

- The party budget will be to rent a field for our championship game and to buy supplies for a final celebratory party.  


If we do not meet our goal...

I will do whatever I can in my power to ensure that are athletes have equipment needed to start our season. If we fall short then my hopes is to at least get them team jerseys.

Enrichment Instructor , KIPP Academy of Innovation

I am the head football coach at Kipp Academy of Innovation in East Los Angeles. We are a founding team and basically starting this program from scratch. Although we don't have much we are believing that through our fundraising efforts we can afford to play in a league next season as well as fund equipment, transportation, and clinic cost.
