Raising $ for PRFC staff/players

$16,123 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 134 people in 8 months
Created September 21, 2017
As many of you know, the island of Puerto Rico was recently devastated by Hurricane Maria. While the exact nature of impact remains unknown, we expect widespread damaging affecting the people of Puerto Rico.

While there are many others raising money for the island of Puerto Rico, the focus for us will be to raise money to donate to the staff of Puerto Rico Football Club. All proceeds (minus GoFundMe's fees) will be donated to the club.

As we know, the staff of all our beloved NASL/USL/NPSL/PDL clubs aren't doing it for the money. They need our help to rebuild their lives and your donation will be greatly appreciated by all.

Thank you for considering a donation, and please share this via your own social media networks.

Hi everyone,

We are at the final step of our Fundraiser - the checks have been sent to the office of Puerto Rico FC. I wanted to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for what you have done.

A hundred and thirty four of you donated generously to people in need, and for that I applaud and admire you. People from all over American soccer - fans, owners, staff members, players - came together as one to help some of our own.

For the sake of full transparency, I would like to explain how the money was dispersed:

1. Total amount to disperse (after GoFundMe deductions)- $14,808 .91
2. Decided to disperse to 13 non-player employees.
This number was chosen as I wanted to ensure all beneficiaries received at least $1000. These are the 13 lowest paid employees who live on the island.
3. One individual will receive $2000 as his/her house was damaged by the hurricane.
4. 12 employees receive $1000 each.
5. The remaining $808.14 will be divided among the four lowest paid employees from the aforementioned 12.

Yet again, I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. You have achieved something incredible. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope you and yours are happy, warm and excited for the upcoming holiday season.

Sincerely,
Nipun Chopra
