When you serve 1,200 players each season, there are a lot of moving parts. We maximize every registration dollar we receive, but there's always more we wish we could do. Your contributions allow us to maintain or extend the reach of our scholarship program, maintain the level of services we provide even in the face of rising costs, and continue to keep soccer at all levels as affordable as possible. Of course, your donation is fully tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by our staff and players.
Iowa Rush strongly believes that the benefits of participating in youth sports should not be limited only to those who can afford it. That is why we award scholarships to children of families with documented financial need. Donations to our Scholarship Fund allow us to continue this important work and allow kids who otherwise would not have the chance to play the game they love.
Donations to the General Fund will be unrestricted and allow us the flexibility to use funds in a variety of ways, including:
- Immediate, unforeseen needs such as replacing damaged field equipment.
- Special events such as RecFest and the Select tournaments.
- Helping coaches attain state- and national-level licensing.
- Unrestricted funds will not be used for personnel expenses or expenses incurred by individual teams or players.
