Fundraising

Event Planning Committee

Do you want to help plan and execute fun and inclusive social events to benefit Bay Area Disc's programs? Are you creative, driven and organized? Then join the Event Planning Committee! This Committee is forming in Fall 2015 to organize social events for fundraising purposes. The Committee meets several times before each event to plan and carry out successful fundraisers. There will be 1-2 annual fundraisers overseen by the Committee, with the first one scheduled for December 2015.

House Party Fundraiser Hosts
In Fall 2015, Bay Area Disc started a House Party Fundraiser program. The idea is to bring your friends together under one roof to celebrate ultimate frisbee and raise funds for Bay Area Disc's programs. Share stories about ultimate, talk about new Bay Area Disc programs, and celebrate the community! Whether you're a club player, rec player, or parent of a youth player, we will provide you with ample support when hosting a fundraising party. When you fill out the form above, we'll email you back with our guide to house party fundraising and coordinate the necessary logistics. 

*For fundraising-specific volunteer questions, please contact our Executive Director.

Bay Area players have a lot of stories to tell -- do you? We would love to read about ultimate frisbee's positive impact on your (or a friend/family member's) life, and then publish it on our blog!

Opportunities exist to coach teams as part of leagues, at schools, and for tournaments.
