League Expense Allocation

How Registration Fees and Fundraising Monies are Allocated

Every year, parents ask how is the money spent from registration fees and fundraising efforts.

Fiscal responsibility it paramount to the growth and success of a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization.  Oceanside Pop Warner works diligently to provide a great experience to our players and value for our parents.  Our organization is comprised solely of volunteers who dedicate their free time with zero financial compensation.  All volunteers who register their children for the OPW program still adhere to the same requirement as other parents.  They pay the full tuition cost of the program and any mandatory fundraising events.  They do not receive any extra special entitlements or privileges.

The volunteers of the OPW community include board members, coaches, and support staff – and parents make up a big percentage of these volunteers.  A large number of our volunteers include people who DO NOT have a child in the league.  They donate their time out of love for the program and passion for football and cheer.  Our volunteers are vital to the success of the organization and we couldn’t do it without them!

The money collected through registrations, fundraising and donors are put to good use. Allocations include:

  • Uniforms: 35%
  • Field Allocation & Usage Costs: 31%
  • Equipment: 9%
  • Player Quality of Life: 8%
  • Administrative Operating Expense: 6%
  • Dues, Fees & Insurance: 5%
  • Player Events: 4%
