Why does East Bay Flag Football give money to local charities?

East Bay Flag Football has had a lot to celebrate. They have grown from 80 players in their first season, Fall 2013, to over 480 players in Fall of 2018! And the leagues charitable contributions have grown too. EBFF made it's first official donations to local charities in 2014, giving $2,000 each to Children’s Hospital Oakland and BayKids. Since then, the league has donated a total of $42,000!!

CHO's and BayKids' dedication to youth wellness, teamwork and generosity is what inspired the league’s formation. Organizers plan to make donations to local charities every year. Donations are raised through East Bay Flag players’ registration fees.

At Children’s, the money is earmarked to buy toys for the teen center’s bingo night prizes and holiday gifts. "We know a couple thousand dollars won’t go far covering medical costs, but it will buy a lot of toys and gifts for sick kids" said league founder Adam McNulty.

BayKids, based in San Francisco, also helps sick kids. BayKids filmmakers help patients at Children’s make their own movies, everything from anime to adventure films to documentaries. By learning to make films while they are in the hospital, kids can learn about acting, photography, script writing, editing and other skills. "BayKids provides a much needed distraction. Kids can concentrate on 'their film', rather than all the other scary stuff going on in the hospital. Hopefully our donations to BayKids will help them continue doing what they do" McNulty said.

EBFF began donations to Oakland High School's Football Program in the Spring 2015 Season. Lead by Head Coach Jayce Goree, Oakland High's football program gives their players a sense of purpose, pride and accomplishment.

EBFF is proud to help these great local charities and programs. For information, go to: &
