Forward Madison FC and Supporters Group Launch "PAY IT FORWARD" Donation Program
Forward Madison FC is proud to partner with the club's Independent Supporters Association (ISA), The Flock, on a new charitable ticket donation program. The PAY IT FORWARD program will provide fans with a new pathway to show their support for FMFC and the greater Madison community. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to donate ticket(s) for any home game they are unable to attend to the Flock Soccer Foundation.
The Flock, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, created the Flock Soccer Foundation as a way to use sport to effect positive social change. The Foundation aims to accomplish this in greater Madison by making soccer more affordable for underserved segments of the Madison metro area's soccer communities. Donated tickets will be given to several local charities, including the Flock Soccer Foundation, which provides resources to underserved communities in Madison and the surrounding areas. PAY IT FORWARD will allow ticket holders to show their support for Forward Madison FC even when physically absent while simultaneously benefiting the local community.
Forward Madison FC was founded with a vision of positively impacting the Madison community. We are fortunate to have supporters who not only share our vision of strengthening the local community by using the game to provide a positive and safe space that promotes inclusiveness, but who are willing to take a central role in doing so," said Connor Tobin, forward Madison team captain who is working with the Flock to develop the PAY IT FORWARD program.
"One of the core principles of our supporters group is to make a positive impact in the Madison community. This is a unique opportunity for us to work with the club and other local nonprofits to give more families in our area a chance to experience professional soccer in Madison," said Scott Sala, co-chair of The Flock's charity and community outreach committee.
The PAY IT FORWARD program will be available to both season ticket holders and individual ticket holders. Season ticket holders will have the option to roll over a ticket to other games OR donate the ticket through PAY IT FORWARD. All ticket donations are tax-deductible through The Flock Soccer Foundation.
Both Forward Madison FC and The Flock Foundation are committed to growing soccer in the Madison area. We believe the game can help bring our community together, promote inclusiveness, provide positivity and safe space for all while inspiring greatness on and off the field.
