Donate!
Costume to the highest donation Challenge - Coach Trevor will wear a costume of the player’s choice to the first week of training to the highest bidder from his 11U Girls team! Girls, you could put Coach Trevor in a Teddy Bear costume or dress him as a Unicorn for an entire week of training for the highest bidder. Donate!
Full Kit for a day Challenge - Coach Trevor reaching out to his 17U - 19U Boys for this one. He will wear a full soccer kit for the entire day from the highest donator’s choosing. If anyone who needs a hint, Coach Trevor despises Everton, Manchester United, and Man. City. Donate!

Donate!
Giving Day Match Donor
A match donor is someone who is willing to donate a certain amount of money from $100 all the way to $1000 to match multiple donations from within the community.
We then ask our community, family, friends, & local businesses to make donations on Giving Day. For example, we may put a challenge out that if we get $500 raised from JUSC Families then it will release $500 Matching Donation from Donor X.
It is a quick way to make a huge impact for those families in financial need within our community.
Giving Day Goals
Every donation matters. Every dollar helps in giving a child a chance to play soccer! We want to honor Karen Coaldrake’s memory & raise funds for our soccer families in need.
