The Chapter Challenge is intended in part to help raise money for the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, the chapter of US Lacrosse responsible for promoting the growth and development of the game in Eastern Pennsylvania.
Every year, the PLA provides programs and services to members of the lacrosse community, including clinics for coaches and officials, and makes grant funding and technical expertise available to new programs. The PLA has provided over $350,000 to help underwrite lacrosse initiatives in the region (including efforts to grow the game in the City Philadelphia). The organization also conducts or sponsors lacrosse-related activities, including charitable events, hosts national team exhibitions, and manages the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
We have asked participating teams to solicit and identify a benefactor to sponsor their appearance in the event, with a recommended contribution of $200 (or whatever greater or lesser amount is possible), payable to the PLA (this donation is in addition to the registration fee and will inure entirely to the benefit of the PLA).
Each team’s “Challenge Partner” will be recognized for their support on this website, on the PLA website, and in a press release before and after the event.
Donations are deductible to the extent permitted by law (TIN 23-2680379; Exemption Number 52-07906050; Group No. 3322).
