A gathering to



Join JA in August 2020 to build a team of friends or colleagues, bowl for fun and for our students, and boost our programs. Your fun outing will directly support our financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs that reach 25,000 Central Virginia students each year!

What is Bowl for JA?

Fun. Social. Competitive. Critical to JA!

For over 30 years, Bowl for JA has been a team-building event that brings together Richmond companies and individuals to have fun bowling!

Our bowling event includes 2 hours of unlimited bowling and shoe rentals for up to 5 bowlers per team.

When is Bowl for JA?

Due to COVID-19, JACV is working to reschedule our June bowling dates to August.

Reach out to Bev at bbean@jatoday.org with questions.


How do I participate?

There are two ways to Bowl for JA:

  1. Participate on a Sponsored Team - These bowlers are invited to attend Bowl for JA through a company sponsorship. Bowlers are asked to register here on QGiv and then show up and have a blast!
  2. Participate on a Fundraising Team - These bowlers attend Bowl for JA through meeting a personal fundraising goal of $100 per bowler. Each team has a team goal of $500 ($100 per bowler x 5 bowlers per team).  Teams are also asked to pay the small lane fee to participate. Bowlers sign up here on QGiv and then can use their personal fundraising page to start generating donations for JA!

Do I fundraise?

If your company has sponsored Bowl for JA then you do not need to fundraise to participate.

If you are bowling without a sponsorship than yes, we ask each bowler to raise $100, totaling $500 for a team of 5. This is in addition to the lane fee ($150 for regular alleys, $350 for River City Roll), which simply cover the costs of the event.

Some initial ideas to get you started fundraising...

  • Register on QGiv to get your personal fundraising page set up.
  • Send an email to your network asking for a small donation, sharing your QGiv page.
  • Share your QGiv page on your Facebook page. Reach a lot of people with little effort!
  • Start a competition in your office. Challenge others to fundraise and see who raises the most.
  • Host a bake sale, chili cookoff, ice cream social, or other fun event where the proceeds go to your fundraising.
  • Have your network sponsor you per pin, let's say $0.10 per pin. If you bowl a 105 that is a $10.50 donation!

Why should I fundraise?

  • Nearly half of our $105,000 goal we anticipate coming from bowler fundraising - wow!
  • If you meet your $100 fundraising goal you are invited to a Thank You Party at Three Notch'd Brewery that includes food and custom-brewed JA beer!
  • Your donation will directly support our programs and the 25,000 students we impact each year.
