Dear Friends:

The Lincoln High School football program welcomes you to the 2017 football season! We are proud to be celebrating over 60 years of Zebra football and are working hard to build on last year’s Pioneer Valley League (PVL) Championship season!

We are reaching out to our community to help us raise funds for our program for the upcoming season. The philosophy of our program is Building Men of Character (“BMOC”). We believe that winning games on the field is important, but it is even more critical to help these young men excel in the game of life. Running a high-quality football program is a huge financial undertaking. Most people are not aware of the fact that gate money from our football games helps fund our entire athletic program; not just football. Therefore, it is up to our players, coaches and community to help us achieve our yearly fundraising benchmarks. Our primary goal this year is to raise funds to purchase safety equipment, training equipment, and up-to-date technology for our field and coaching staff.

We would greatly appreciate any consideration, as every dollar counts. If you can help, please see the sponsorship levels below and fill out the attached form.
