A.E. Engine offers high school football coaches an opportunity to fundraise for their programs with the FNF Custom Cover Project. FNF’s magazine series offers state-wide high school football publications in Florida, Georgia and Ohio. More than 100,000 copies of the magazine series are distributed to newsstands via major retailers including Walmart, Walgreen, CVS and major regional grocers.
The Custom Cover Project allows team to customize the cover as well as three additional full-page cover pages, a team preview inside the magazine and 400 copies to sell to fans.
The full-page preview was a new addition to the program in 2016, as each team that took part in the program received a 700-word preview story as well as additional space for photos, team facts, a roster, a list of coaches and headshots for up to 14 players.
In 2017, Matthew DiBernardo became the first coach to commit to two Custom Cover Projects in the same year. The Oak Hall High (Fla.) coach had FNF produce one Custom Cover for his high school team and another for the middle school team.
What he got in return was customized magazines for each of his players, their families, and their fans – and more importantly – a fundraiser that helped bring more than $6,000 to his programs.
