2017 D.C. Divas Fundraising Campaign

2017 Fundraising

The D.C. Divas are kicking off their 2017 fundraising campaign!

Why? The D.C. Divas are a women’s full-contact football team that is committed to providing a first-class experience for our athletes. The Divas are the two-time defending national champions after winning the WFA national title in 2015 and 2016! The Divas continue to advance the cause of women’s athletics, celebrating their 17th season of providing female athletes an opportunity to play women’s football.

However, in the operation of our team, the Divas incur numerous expenses, including the costs of renting practice facilities, hosting home games, securing travel and hotel rooms for overnight road games, franchise fees to the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), a small stipend for our staff and coaches, supplies such as footballs and athletic tape, and many other necessities.

The Divas organization relies heavily on ticket sales, advertisements, and donations from our fans to fund our annual expenses. In addition, each D.C. Divas player must pay a training fee to help offset some of these costs, and this fee can be raised through sponsorships, advertisements, and ticket sales.

Sponsor a Diva! One excellent way to support your favorite Divas player or players is through the D.C. Divas fundraising campaign! Proceeds from your donations will go directly towards the training feeĀ of the player or players of your choice.

Sponsorship Levels: The D.C. Divas have three different sponsorship levels. When you make a donation, you can give your favorite player a personal “shout-out” or words of encouragement that will be listed here and on your favorite player’s page!

First Down Sponsor – $25

First Down Sponsors can place a shout out of up to 50 characters on their favorite player’s page.

Field Goal Sponsor – $50

Field Goal Sponsors can place a shout out of up to 100 characters on their favorite player’s page.

Touchdown Sponsor – $100

Touchdown Sponsors can place a shout out of up to 200 characters on their favorite player’s page.

While we have three different sponsorship levels, any and all donations are much appreciated, no matter how small! Click on the button below to select your own donation level. Every little bit helps, so thank you for choosing to sponsor one of our aspiring D.C. Diva athletes and helping to create opportunities for women to play football!

How to Donate: Click on one of the “Donate Now” buttons above to donate and enter your desired donation amount. Donations are handled securely via PayPal. You can pay by signing into your PayPal account or by using your credit or debit card.

After logging in and entering your donation amount, you will be taken to a confirmation screen. At the top of the screen, there will be a section marked “Special Instructions” where you can add a note to your donation. Click “Add” and give us the “shout out” you’d like displayed on your favorite player’s page! And if it isn’t clear from your “shout out”, please be sure to tell us which player you’d like credited with your donation. Also, please add a note to the transaction if you would like to keep your donation anonymous. You can then click the “Pay Now” button to complete your transaction.

If you forget to include a note along with your donation, don’t worry! Just send us an email and tell us what player you sponsored, the date and amount of your donation, and the “shout out” you wanted to include. Shout outs are typically posted to the website within a week after the donation is made.

The D.C. Divas greatly appreciate your support! Go Divas!
