Mr. Dowd from Rochester NY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

CSR United Additional Funding!

Help me give my students additional supplies to make sure that they are 1 to 1 with a soccer ball, drastically enhancing the amount of touches they get, and effective training that they receive!

My Students

My students from the CSR are the personification of the school's motto. The motto is "a world in a school." Many students are refugees who share a love of the language of soccer. This love language brings them together!

Four billion humans love soccer around the world, and now you can give some funds to help give these little humans a chance to grow their soccer skills!

The students that this fundraiser would reach are a part of the future in the city of Rochester. They are from many different socioeconomic families, with the majority of them recieving free meals everyday.

The students are as young as pre-K and as old as 4th graders. In the future I hope to be able to provide teams for the 5th and 6th graders as well!

Working with the Rochester City Soccer League we can truly live by the Frederick Douglass quote "It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men."

My Project

We raised a lot of money with the first go around. This would help us to gain additional supplies that would benefit our players. The player who have been training with us have been excited about participating, and they have brought an enthusiasm that is magnificent to our team.

It is time to take it up a notch!

By using our additional funding to purchase more soccer balls, and goals we could move from 4 players to 1 soccer ball closer to 1 player per soccer ball!

That would mean the world of difference in developing our players into complete players. In order to succeed in soccer, clubs around the world hope to get 10,000 touches per training session. We are on our way to making that happen here at CSR!
