UDFC 50/50

The UDFC online 50/50 is up and running. This is a wonderful opportunity to raise money for your household to use on future UDFC registrations and UDFC clothing. Participation is completely voluntary for interested families.

We hope you have all now received the second email from Experience Funding with the user-friendly attachment.

If you have multiple player registrants in the club you can use all email links or choose one. All funds raised will be “banked” under your Household account.

You can also use your social media accounts to widen your area, the links can be reposted to any of your social media accounts.

Happy Fundraising

UDFC needs volunteers to take photos of UDFC – any time, any place!!

We are looking for volunteers to take pictures, collect names and set up captions. You can take photos of your own teams and any teams that share the field or play before or after you. Send photos and captions to media@udfc.ca .

We are also looking for a few key volunteers who will receive these photos and publish them to our new social media platform (Hootsuite).

Email media@udfc.ca if you would like more information on any of these roles.
