If you would like to speak further with someone about the many ways you can support the students of the League, use this form and someone will contact you.

There are many ways for you to help: contributing financially, volunteering to judge, helping at our tournaments, volunteering at a school, helping with office activities (like mailing postcards), donating resources, spreading the word about the BUDL, and helping to advocate for the League.
