We are starting an online fundraiser now to raise money for Poly Football. We are using a fundraising website called Piggybackr, which is designed to empower young people to raise money online for their teams, organizations, and causes. PiggyBackr teaches users how to fundraiser and motivates them with points, levels, and badges. Last time (2015) our athletes raised about $18,000!
Cash rewards will be given to the most effective fundraisers. This is a very simple fundraiser in which all you have to do is fill out some information on the form below and then invite all your friends and family to participate by email.
Create your personal fundraising page by: Monday, July 31
Send emails by Saturday, August 7.
Fundraising deadline: Thursday, September 21.
Cash Prizes to be announced for the 3 most successful fundraisers at the first Home game of the season on Thursday, September 28.

HOW IT WORKS
- Create your own fundraising page in less than 5 minutes
- Collect email address of your friends and family to email them about the fundraiser. Each participant should send at least 20-40 emails through PiggyBackr.
- Work with your parents – the more email addresses you have the better your chances of winning the cash prize!
- Think carefully and make sure you include all likely donors when you forward their email addresses. These will include, but not be limited to, all the people whose regular mail addresses you have provided for our letter campaigns in the past, and all your family and friends and your parents’ friends.
- Use PiggyBackr to reach out to local businesses, post updates on social media, and send pictures/videos to your sponsors. The more effort you put in, the more points you get and the better opportunity you have to win cash rewards!
