Who We Are:

The Bears Football Club Of Monument is a 501(c)3 non-profit origination established in 2008 to support the Palmer Ridge Football Program.  We are a stand-along group ofplayer-parent volunteers who work together to raise funding for larger capital projects.  All player parents, grandparents and family members are welcome to join in support of our boys.  GO BEARS!!!


What We Do:

Contrary to common belief, the funding PR Football receives through school fees is insufficient to provide for items beyond bus, field use, staff and officials.  Without BFCOM, the needs of our players would go un-funded. Here’s a small sample listing of some of the items BFCOM has provided for our boys over the years.

  • Meals for players, coaches and managers before every home and away game (when games take place after school hours).

  • Top Virginia Tech rated helmets

  • New shoulder pads

  • New football game pants

  • JUGS Machine

  • Wireless headsets

  • HUDL subscription

  • End zone cameras

  • Training room equipment

  • Team Run-Through banner

How We Do It:

We are not a booster club.  We do NOT ask you to join membership, write a check or pay dues of any kind! 

Our biggest fundraiser is the Annual BBQ and Auction. It is a ticketed, adult-only event where donated items are bid on in silent and live auctions.  There are many incredible deals on a wide variety of great items including letterman jackets, vacation stays, food and drink packages, jewelry, and much more!  Your ticket includes dinner and drinks, and is your gateway to these amazing deals! It’s a fun night out not only for football parents, but friends and family as well.

We also offer football spirit gear including clothing, car decals and player yard signs to proudly display your Bear pride.  The club makes a small return on these items and that money is put directly back into the program to benefit our boys.


What You Can Do:

Get involved!  We hold meetings once a month in various locations, often homes of players, to give reports and discuss upcoming events.  It is low-key and all adults are welcome.

Auction: As our primary fundraiser, we need your support.  It starts by putting together a basket or item to be auctioned.  It can be as simple as a handcrafted item, to something as elaborate as a vacation package.  Or ask a local business you frequent to make a donation to our club. Since we are a 501.c.3 non-profit organization, all donated items are fully tax deductible!  Second, attend!  It’s an exciting night out and a great opportunity to plug in with your PR football family.  Third, invite your family and friends.  Give your loved ones the opportunity to get some great deals and enjoy an elegant evening out, all while supporting Bears Football!  Want an even bigger part? Come to the meetings and sign up to help the committee chairperson with the event.
