Buckeye Youth Football Fundraising Through FlipGive; We Need Your Help!

Posted by Matt Wilhelm on Sep 01 2020 at 08:53AM PDT in 2020 Season

Buckeye Youth Football and Cheer Families,
We hope this message finds you and your families well. The BYFA and the entire LEYFL community are all desperately missing youth football this Fall. We are though looking forward to the Spring 2021 restart.

BYFA is also desperately missing our 2020 fundraising opportunities. The annual fundraiser event traditionally held at St. Martin’s and concession stand sales have provided us with the funds we need to maintain our football fields and equipment. They also allow growth of the program such as past purchases of the equipment shed and bleachers. BYFA has significant equipment and uniform needs in the coming seasons and the lack of 2020 funds will be challenging. Field maintenance and insurance costs also have not stopped.

You can help.

USA Football has partnered with the FlipGive app to give football programs nationwide a means to raise funds on the online purchases our families already make. FlipGive gets a referral percentage by directing traffic to participating online retailers. They then share a portion with us.

Your extra clicks at no cost to you could be supporting Buckeye Youth Football on purchases made through the FlipGive app or website. Major retailers such as WalMart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Apple, Nike, Target and even Amazon participate. The giving percentages differ and some give more than others. Please visit their site to see the long list of available retailers. If your family ever goes to BW3 PLEASE use the app and BYFA will earn 6% of your bill!

I am typically a skeptic of these things and initially my opinion of FlipGive was no different. After speaking with their reps I have been using the app for the last month on our typical purchases. It has been very easy to use at all the retailers mentioned above. The earnings can add up quickly when the whole team is on board.

We found one of the best ways to support BYFA is through the purchase of digital gift cards through FlipGive. They are ready to use instantly upon purchase. At Home Depot and Lowe’s I have purchased digital gift cards at the register and used them at the same speed as a credit card.

To help support Buckeye Youth Football please download the FlipGive smart phone app or visit https://usafootball.flipgive.com/. Then create an account and enter the BYFA team code RPHW4C. You may also see an automated invitation email to join FlipGive soon.

Please reach out to me anytime with questions on how to set up and use FlipGive. It really is easy after getting started. Please also forward this on to any other family or friends that can help.

Thank you for your continued support of Buckeye Youth Football and Cheer!
