Flint Firebirds Community Support Policy

At the Flint Firebirds, community engagement is at the heart of our mission. We are committed to supporting the communities where our fans reside, our staff operates, and our team competes. To ensure fairness and consistency, we’ve established the following guidelines for organizations seeking our support.

Donation Request Guidelines:

  1. Eligibility: Only accredited 501(c)3 non-profit organizations or charities licensed by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service are eligible.
  2. Location: The event must take place within the Genesee County area.
  3. Frequency: Organizations may submit one request per calendar year.
  4. Submission: All requests must be made electronically, at least six weeks in advance of the event. We do not accept requests via phone, fax, mail, or email.


We regret that we cannot accommodate requests for:

  • Personal use items.
  • Contributions to business or organizational rewards programs.
  • Donations on behalf of third parties (e.g., non-profit walks or runs).
  • Multiple donations to the same organization within a year.
  • Ticket donations, monetary contributions, event sponsorship signage, or bulk promotional items.

Player and Mascot Appearances:

  • Mascot requests are considered throughout the year.
  • Player requests are entertained only during the regular season (September-March), subject to their game and travel schedules.


Completion of the request form does not guarantee team participation. Due to the volume of requests, only approved applications will receive a response. Please allow up to two weeks for consideration.
