USA Football and FlipGive announce $25,000 in equipment grants

By Brent Glasgow | Posted 7/11/2018

Football program costs can add up, from field improvements to helmet reconditioning and equipment. When cash is tight, teams and families often have to fundraise or pay out of pocket.

USA Football and FlipGive have teamed up to help, with 50 equipment grants of $500 each. 

USA Football Team Rewards powered by FlipGive lets teams and families earn cash back through online shopping, whether it's with USA Football partners like Shock DoctorCutters and McDavid, or retailers like Walmart, Expedia or Starbucks.

“It’s simple,” Team Rewards program director Mark Bachman said. “Create an account, then earn cash back every time you shop your favorite brands, use the money earned to offset the cost of your season. If you shop online, why leave money on the table?”

Now through Sept. 2, USA Football customers who raise $500 through Team Rewards will get a matching $500 credit toward Riddell equipment. To be eligible, groups must meet the following criteria:

1. Raise money on behalf of a registered USA Football member league, team, association or organization.

2. Raise a minimum of $500.

3. Have a minimum of five team members on their fundraising page.
