Clear The Fields
BEND FC TIMBERS - 501(c)3 VIRTUAL FUND DRIVE:
DEC. 1- 10, 2020
PLEASE JOIN US IN MAKING A CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS BEND FC TIMBERS PURCHASING OUR VERY OWN SNOW REMOVAL EQUIPMENT SO THAT WE CAN PLAY SOCCER YEAR-ROUND HERE IN CENTRAL OREGON.
While we have always known that sports could be life-changing, this summer and fall proved that soccer became the lifeline for so many young players in Central Oregon. As a non-profit, we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received from our membership and community throughout the Covid crisis, however now we want to make sure that your kids can continue to stay healthy, active, and social by giving them access to our beautiful soccer fields this winter!!
We are fortunate to be playing on our very own lit soccer fields. The mere thought of not having these fields during the pandemic is flat-out frightening and now with so much uncertainty around indoor sports, we want to make it 100% possible that your kids can continue to play on their fields.
Our club always had a long-term goal of purchasing equipment that would allow us to clear snow for the better part of winter. However, when Covid-19 hit nearly 9 months ago, we quickly began to recognize the urgency to make our fields playable year-round. We have all witnessed the lifeline that soccer has brought to our players and families. As a club we have received countless notes of gratitude and appreciation for getting our kids out to play, engage and most of all have fun on a regular basis. As of today, we are staring at a long winter and Bend FC Timber’s goal is to give kids access to be able to safely play outdoor sports. For those that are new or unfamiliar with a typical BFCT season, we would usually offer indoor programming from now until the end of January and then pick back up with outdoor practices and games again at the end of January. If we do not have the capability of returning to the fields due to inclement weather we could face only intermittent soccer until April.
Please consider helping us invest in this critical equipment (like the one featured above) before the snow hits Central Oregon. Every dollar counts and will make an immediate difference.
Our goal is to raise $20k and own this equipment so that we can continue to keep kids playing soccer!
Additionally, BFCT is offering two business sponsorships at $2500 each where your company logo will be permanently featured on the UTV doors. In addition to snow removal, this UTV will be used on BFCT game days and tournaments for many years to come. Please reach out to me directly at email@example.com for more info.
Thank you for helping us, to continue helping kids!
