Dear FCA Lacrosse Family and Friends,
We are writing to ask you to consider financially supporting FCA Lacrosse Chicago for this spring season.
FCA Lacrosse Chicago was started in January 2015 to offer a unique alternative to youth lacrosse. Through the combination of athletics, faith, and character we are focused on developing a complete student-athlete for long-term, sustained growth. We pay for facilities, as well as our trained coaching staff and additional opportunities for players. Our goal is to keep costs at a minimum for families while still offering a high-quality experience for all involved.
Most importantly, we would like our lacrosse program to be accessible to everyone who wants to play. Not everyone can afford all that goes along with playing on our Spring teams. The costs associated with equipment, team fees, and uniform fees add up. We would like to provide scholarship support for any family who contacts us with a need.
In 2016 and 2017, we were able to provide scholarships to many of those families. As we work to keep the cost of playing as low as we can, we still need friends and families to come along side us through donations to help other families. We provided scholarships to 19 families in 2018 and 23 families in 2019. All the families who asked for assistance received scholarship money!
For 2020, our goal is to raise $4,500 (essentially ten full scholarships), which could be distributed as follows:
- $450 full scholarship
- $225 partial scholarship
- $100 tournament scholarship
- $50 uniform scholarship
When you donate to FCA Lacrosse Chicago (using this link), your donation goes directly to our program’s scholarship fund. All donations are tax deductible – you will receive a receipt from FCA Lacrosse upon making your online donation.
Feel free to pass this donation request along to friends and family who may be interested in supporting our program as well.
Cort, Beth, and Geof
