Giving Tuesday: Please Support SCSL

GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year.

People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday — whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.

Generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.

As you celebrate GivingTuesday, please remember the Shenandoah County Soccer League with a financial contribution.

SCSL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which has been in continuous operation since 1984. SCSL is run by local volunteers, not paid staff, and the League does not receive any annual government funding. SCSL is independent and reflects the community it serves. 

The League is partially funded by player registrations, but these do not cover all the expenses the League faces each year. That's intentional; SCSL never tries to make more money that it needs to provide youth recreational opportunities, and SCSL's registration fees are significantly lower than soccer fees in other areas and lower than other sports. 

In order to continue year after year, SCSL depends on fundraisers and the generosity of individuals and businesses to support the League.

This year, due to COVID-19 and the lockdown this spring, SCSL lost nearly $22,000 from the canceled spring season, refunds of player registration fees, and not being able to hold any tournaments or other fundraisers. As the end of the year approaches, that deficit has been worked down to $15,293. 

SCSL will seek assistance from pandemic funds, but it won't cover everything. Your financial support this GivingTuesday will enable the League to stay in operation and continue to offer affordable youth recreational opportunities for our kids.
