Player and/or Donation Requests
Thank you for your interest in asking the Buffalo Bills Alumni Chapter to be a part of your upcoming event. Due to the high volume of requests received, our Chapter has established the following guidelines and procedures to assist with player/donation requests relating to the Buffalo Bills Alumni potential involvement.

Guidelines
The Buffalo Bills Alumni are excited about the high level of enthusiasm for our Chapter and thank all our fans around Western New York for their continued support. We want this partnership to be beneficial for those involved with your event, and for the Alumni players themselves. With that in mind, we ask that each appearance meet the following criteria:

- Groups or Organizations should be Non-Profit 501©3

- Fundraisers to benefit individuals or families are generally not honored

- Organizations should submit only one request per calendar year

- Merchandise donated by the Buffalo Bills Alumni for charity cannot be sold for profit

- Use of the Buffalo Bills Alumni name, logos and/or any advertising that implies support or sponsorship of any event by the Buffalo Bills Alumni, must be approved in writing by the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation.

Fees
Fees for Bills Alumni Player appearances are not set by Buffalo Bills Alumni Chapter. Individual players/agents determine the rate for an appearance. The rates differ depending on the player requested. Most civic organizations offer an honorarium or make a direct donation to a charity specified by the player or donation to a player’s foundation. All payments should be made directly to the player and must be paid prior to or by conclusion of the event.

Player Availability
Bills Alumni players are available at most times during the year. The Bills Alumni make appearances throughout Western New York. The most common settings for player appearances are civic organizations, charity, schools, non-profit events sporting events and business functions. A 1-2 hour appearance is preferred and should be within no more than a 1-hour drive from the Buffalo area.

Required Request Information

All appearance requests must be received at least 30 days prior to your scheduled event. Player appearances are generally confirmed one to two weeks prior to the event date.
