A growing soccer Club requires more than registration revenue to managed its day-to-day activities let alone the capital-intensive efforts to establish a private soccer complex. The Carlisle Soccer Club has been very blessed by the giving spirit of a lot of individuals and organizations, many of which we’ll never adequately be able to honor. This page is our attempt to say “thanks” to those organizations who have donated to the club over the past few years. If we missed you, we apologize and ask that you let Mark True know so you can be added to the honor roll. If you’re listed here, we thank you immensely for your generosity and the committment to growing soccer in Carlisle.

This list does not include dozens of soccer parents who routinely donate additional dollars during the online registration process. (We hope to get those listed here soon).
