Why are donations so important to fun bunch?
Fun Bunch is a free soccer program for players who have developmental differences. Sports are a critical piece in childhood development, not only to physical health, but also in improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral problems, and better social abilities. Fun Bunch is driven by the belief that ALL children, those with and without disabilities, should have access to sports and the accompanying feeling of being a part of something. With Fun Bunch, these children are given an opportunity to flourish through the practice, competition, friendship, and belonging that a team environment provides.
By being a supporter of Fun Bunch, your organization helps create a direct opportunity for all children to learn the important values that are gained from being a part of team: good sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership. We all strive to lead socially responsible organizations and by sponsoring a Fun Bunch team, you are sending the message to your entire organization that you value individuals with developmental differences. This is an opportunity to lead by example.
how will my donation be used?
Your generosity will support administrative and operational costs for Fun Bunch. These costs include coaching fees, volunteer recruitment, marketing, insurance, storage, and equipment costs. As an example, coaching for each team costs roughly $1,800 a year. Fun Bunch is a free program for all players, and as a result there is no other program like it in the DC area. Your financial support ensures that we can continue to enrich the lives of our players through this program.
