The FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ is currently US$5 (contributed by the Charitable Wager Host) plus all of ‘weekly’ donation fees of the sponsoring advertisers. 100% of FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ will go to the designated charity.

Additionally, in the 2017 Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will earn contest points for the charities for which they were playing. Weekly winners will earn 60 points, weekly second place finishers will earn 20 points, third place finishers will earn 10 points.

While no donation is required to play in the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will be encouraged to donate $5, or however much they feel comfortable contributing, to the charity selected by winner of each weekly contest.
