Operational Budget

The charts above illustrate the operational expenses and income sources* of the FLAG Flag Football league. We are proud that FLAG Flag Football remains one of the most affordable of the major LGBTQIA+ sports leagues in Boston at a reasonable player fee of about $10 per game.

We rely on fundraising to operate our league. Player fees cover only 34% of our total league operating costs*. Player fees contribute to a variety of operating costs; some of which include: a uniform shirt, field equipment, referees, storage fees, sanitation costs, and league-wide events.

In 2022 our league’s operating budget is $133,562. With a combination of fees, volunteer hours, in-kind donations, sponsorships, and restricted donations, our league aims to raise more than $150,000.  Any surplus will be reinvested back into the league. Some uses include: replacing broken equipment, making play better and safer, and increasing our presence and contributions back to community efforts.

The FLAG Flag Football Board of Directors is entirely comprised of dedicated volunteers that commit and donate their time year-round to operate the league and to meet its charitable mission. We also fundraise and rely on a variety of player, business, and community donations to keep the league operating, raise awareness and support our community outreach efforts. We ask you for your support to pledge a donation today to our league here.

We are grateful for our generous community sponsors listed here. Thank you to our great sponsors!
