WE CAN HELP!
MTW keeps its Team Fee competitive but even if every single family paid their fees in full and/or met their payment plan targets we still have a net loss at the end of the year which averages out to about $12,000 per year and hope that gate revenues and donations can make up the difference. It rarely does. At the same time we do our very best to help our low income players and their families make the fees through seasons pass sales in addition to moneys they can get through the various grant opportunities. Grants are a 50/50 chance and even is successful the funding given in most cases does not make up the difference we need it to. So going forward we are going to try two new fundraising mechanisms called FLIPGIVE and GOFUNDME. And you can help!
Flipgive is an online shopping portal where a percentage of each purchase goes into the MTW campaign fund to be applied to player fees. It’s great for those who already shop online or are interested in giving it a try. Many top brands are partnered with FlipGive so you might be surprised what is available to you here. Especially good for gifts, clothes and even computer accessories!

GoFundMe is an up and coming online donation portal where one can make any size donation directly towards support of the Team Aid Fund or directly to a player on the “Wish List.”

Money in the funds can be withdrawn into the teams account directly and applied to deserving candidates to help us help them make their fee.
