For many of us who work for large companies, this time of year is when the annual United Way drive is run by their employer. What many people may not realize is that since Flemington Midget Football is a federally recognized non-profit organization is that you can choose to direct your United Way donation directly to FMF! If your company uses the United Way online system for donation, you can look up FMF directly as part of the process. You can then choose to direct a portion (or your entire amount) of your United Way donation to FMF.
FMF will use these donations as part of our general funds in our budget. We will then use these funds for needed equipment or for field improvements in 2015. As always, any donations made to FMF (where services are not directly received) are tax deductible.
As always, we are thankful for any monetary donations any individual or business can make to FMF. Our registration fees and mandatory fundraising (ie Tag Day and Raffle tickets) only cover ~50% of our expenses and the rest we obtain through special fundraising and donations.
