The Ultimate Goal Campaign
The club has embarked on a campaign to raise $75,000 in 2013-2014 to support the following goals:
Fully funding the established need for financial assistance
One in six Marin FC families relies on financial assistance to afford club registration and team participation fees. Last year, Marin FC processed 15% more financial-aid applications than in 2011-2012, and issued $35,000+ of aid to needy families. In a typical year, the fundraising goal to fully fund the established need for financial assistance is $50,000.
Offering additional technical training opportunities for our players
This includes field player technical trainings that promote touch, balance, agility and confidence on the ball; positional training sessions that address the specifics needs of defenders, midfield players and strikers; and goalkeeper training sessions and mini camps that focus on improving goalkeepers’ footwork, shot stopping, positional play, distribution and more.
Providing education and training for our coaches
This includes clinics put on by international coaches from revered pro clubs, advanced certification and licensure opportunities, and workshops put on by sports psychologists, dieticians, fitness experts, and injury-prevention specialists.
Funding to support these initiatives is projected to come from the following sources:
Spring Registration Gifts
Parents of U14, U17 and U18 players are asked to make a gift of $150, $300 or $600 at registration. Goal: $25,000
U15 and U16 players are required to referee and contribute the proceeds from 6 Marin FC or Marin FC Alliance Club (Mill Valley, Central Marin, Novato, Tiburon etc.) games. Goal: $18,000
Champions League Viewing Party
The club plans to host an inaugural Champions League viewing party this spring. Goal: $2,500
The club plans to expand on the spring 2012 Golf Challenge event it hosted at San Geronimo GC with an event in fall 2013. Goal: $7,500
End of Year Gifts
The club conducts a letter writing campaign around Thanksgiving seeking gifts from select player and alumni parents ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Goal: $9,000
The club hosts a Casino Night fundraiser each January. Income is generated from ticket sales, sponsorships, and a silent auction. Goal: $13,000
