Successfully getting the lacrosse co-op on the field for the Spring of 2020 season will require our members and community to rally financial support in a short amount of time.

Our initial fundraising goal is $50,000. $25,000 for start-up expenses (helmets, uniforms, field equipment, etc) and $12,500 for each boys and girls team for the 2020 season (field fees, transportation, game-related expenses, etc).

YOUR SUPPORT IS CRITICAL!!

Your donation helps kids in our community participate in co-curricular activities in school, without diverting dollars away from current educational needs.

The Friends of Bloomington-Normal Lacrosse is a parent led, volunteer, Illinois Not-for-Profit Corporation focused on expanding co-curricular opportunities for our high school lacrosse athletes and school districts without adding additional pressure to public school budgets. FOBNL is a tax exempt charitable organization as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code so donations are tax deductible (please contact your tax professional for details).

Will FOBNL accept corporate and individual donations?
