As a 501(c)(3) non-profit soccer club, Lonestar Soccer Club believes every child deserves the opportunity to play soccer, regardless of their age, skill, background, or socioeconomic status. Through the Lonestar Financial Aid Program, the club ensures we never turn a player away from the beautiful game.
In the fiscal year 2020, Lonestar Soccer Club raised over $137,000 and awarded over $454,000 to players in need. In total, the Lonestar Financial Aid Program has raised over 1.5 million dollars and awarded over 2.7 million dollars to over 3,200 players. Despite the gulf in raised versus awarded monies, Lonestar Soccer Club refuses to alter the course of bringing soccer to every player. This year, more than ever, families will rely on the financial support of the club to continue supporting their child’s development both on and off the field.
This year, our flagship fundraising event is the Lonestar Day of P.L.A.Y. (Formerly the 24 Hour Marathon) where our membership rallies together to raise funds through a multi-week fundraising drive. P.L.A.Y. (Protecting the Lives of All Youth) is a commitment to our mission, and to all kids who deserve acceptance regardless of who they are, where they come from, what they believe in, who they love, or the color of their skin. Giving all players in need the opportunity to be a part of Lonestar Soccer Club through the offering of financial assistance is the first step in being able to provide a safe place for a child to grow on and off the field. Your support will ensure that all players have an inclusive environment to be themselves.
For this year’s sole fundraising event, we ask that each U10-U19 team in the Lonestar Select and Elite programs raise a minimum of $300 per team. For each individual player, a minimum target goal of $150 is set. For families in the Lonestar Juniors program, each location comes together to support the fundraising effort, led by the site coordinator. The fundraising effort culminates in an event where our membership joins together on the field to score goals and celebrate the common goal of bringing soccer to every player - including our own teammates!
