Consider Helping!

As both a proud member organization of the United Way of Chatham County (UWCC) and a recipient of grant funding for our outreach and scholarship program, Chatham Soccer League participates in UWCC’s annual fundraising campaign.  We need your help to make it a success.  

The United Way of Chatham County currently provides grant funding for 20 different non-profits, including over $7000 in scholarships to help area children participate in CSL.  Together UWCC member agencies serve over 40,000 Chatham County residents, helping with everything from basic needs like food and emergency aid, programs that educate, nurture and support children and families, health and legal services, support for victims of domestic violence, adult literacy programs, and more (for details click here).  Support from member organizations during this annual campaign is a critical part of the funding that allows UWCC to support these programs.  All money raised stays right here in Chatham County helping our friends, neighbors, and even soccer teammates.  1 out of every 3 people living in Chatham County receives services from a United Way funded program, so the need is great.  Here is how you can help.

Visit the website for the United Way of Chatham County at  and click on the Donate button at the top of the screen.  You will be redirected to their secure donation page hosted on the Network For Good website.  Follow the prompts to make your tax deductible gift of $10 or more.  You will have the option to make a one-time gift or a recurring gift (annually, quarterly, or monthly) which allows you to make a more generous donation and pay in installments.  There is an optional box called Designation that allows you to specify how you would like your donation used (for example, you could designate 100% to CSL, or 50% to CSL and 50% wherever it is most needed).  There is also a box marked Dedication or Gift.  Please enter "CSL 2017/18 Annual Campaign" in this box to indicate that your donation is part of the CSL pledge drive.  

Last year Chatham Soccer League raised over $1500 for the United Way of Chatham County through this campaign.  We were even recognized with a United Way Agency Star Award for our outstanding participation.  We are proud of what we achieved last year, but we love goals in soccer and ours is to raise CSL’s participation even higher this year.  If every CSL family makes just a $10 contribution we will more than double our total from last year.  It will take a team effort, but we have a generous and involved soccer community here in Chatham County, so we are confident that we will rise to the challenge!

Every dollar helps so please consider making the most generous gift you can, and let the United Way know that you appreciate the support they provide to CSL and the children we serve, as well as the work they do throughout our community.  If you have any additional questions about this campaign please email our Campaign Coordinator, Keith Shea, at  Thank you for your time, your charity, and for being a part of the strong and vibrant soccer community of Chatham County.
