Here is where you will find all of the requests for funding that we receive from the various club and organisations supporting the sport of American Football in the UK. There are currently 2 separate Funds where the money to support/satisfy these requests will come from. The Amelie Fund which is owned and operated by Gridiron Hub, and The Hail Mary Hits Community Fund which is owned and operated by Hail Mary Hits.
How it works
Each individual request for funding is reviewed and evaluated on its own merit and funding is applied at the sole discretion of the respective Fund owners. Factoring into the decision-making process will be amount of effort that each individual funding requestor puts in to the promotion and awareness of their request. This can include postings on official and personal social media accounts & websites, or even mentions on radio and TV.
We also have an 'Influence Vote' system where anyone logged in to Gridiron Hub can support a request by voting for it below. Each person is given 10 Influence Votes that they can use on any of the requests - there is 3 vote limit per individual request.
Influence Votes do not define who is awarded funding, as stated above that is at the discretion of the respective Fund Owners. Influences Votes are instead a way for us to see which requests people favour and potentially an indicator of who is doing a great job of promoting their request.
