The South Florida Gay Flag Football League (SFGFFL) is a non-profit organization that fosters community involvement through amateur athletic competition. Our organization promotes positive social plus athletic enjoyment of flag football in league play, national tournaments as well as international competition among LGBT amateur athletes and our straight allies living in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida.
SFGFFL educates its players plus volunteers while making charitable contributions to organizations that deal with anti-bullying programs, suicide prevention, LGBT health, breast cancer awareness, LGBT youth programs, HIV/AIDS treatment, homelessness, hunger, domestic violence assistance, and affordable healthcare for the working poor.
The South Florida Gay Flag Football League, Inc. (SFGFFL) is a State of Florida Not-for-Profit Participant Organization governed by a Board of Thirteen (13) Directors. The SFGFFL applied for 501(c)3 Federal Not-for-Profit Status with the United States Treasury on May 23, 2013. Players in the league pay seasonal dues (currently two seasons annually — Fall & Spring) to participate in adult recreational flag football. There are skills clinics at the start of each season and players receive further training from the Captains and Team Leads. Participants and players are also afforded opportunities to travel with the team — when possible — to broaden their world view and understanding of other leagues. Efforts are made to ensure that all players receive sufficient playing time as well as education in the game to enhance their personal growth, development and world view. The SFGFFL also participates in many community activities and events as well as hosting fundraisers. In 2012 the SFGFFL helped raise funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy. The SFGFFL also helps volunteer efforts in conjunction with other organizations throughout South Florida such as The White Party in Miami Beach, PRIDE Fort Lauderdale, Stonewall Summer PRIDE, Miami Beach Pride and more. Additionally in 2014 Not-for-Profit Organizations in Miami-Dade, Broward and West Palm Beach Counties who provide services related to HIV/AIDS Healthcare, LGBT & Allied Youth and Fighting Hunger will be the focus for Volunteer Hours in giving back to our community.
