Industry Fun Leads to Charity FundsJanuary 15, 2014 | By: Sean Murray
2013’s alternative business financing fantasy football competition came to a close near the end of the regular NFL season. There were some tough matchups and upsets, but two Florida based companies pulled through to win it all. The league raised a total of $9,000 from its participants and as per the rules, must be donated in equal halves to non-profit organizations selected by the two winners.
Financial Advantage Group selected the Spring of Tampa Bay, a noble choice since their mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families and communities. DailyFunder, the trustee of the competition reached out to the organization late last month and made the donation in a low-key manner as per their request. They did express their gratitude to Scott Williams of Financial Advantage Group on their facebook page however:
Business Financial Services selected Wounded Warrior Project. They wrote their own post about the organization and why they are proud to support that cause on their website here: http://www.businessfinancialservices.com/blog/fantasy-football-for-charity/
Wounded Warrior Project accepted their donation with some pizazz, holding a giant check for a photo-op at the organization’s Jacksonville, FL office.
I personally would like to thank Heather Francis of Merchant Cash Group for being a great competition co-host this year as well all of the participants that contributed funds to make these donations possible:

- Raharney Capital
- Strategic Funding Source
