Crumb Joins SportsEngine as New Marketplace Partner to Provide Fundraising Tools to Youth Sports Teams & Families
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Scottsdale, AZ (September 13, 2019) —Crumb, a fundraising and financial management platform for youth and school sports programs, announced today that the company is a new partner of the SportsEngine Marketplace.
As an alternative to traditional fundraising programs, Crumb offers youth sports programs a micro-donation concept to raise money quickly and efficiently. Crumb enables parents and supporters to donate their spare change from everyday purchases to a team of choice. When they buy their morning coffee, shop for groceries, or dine out, Crumb rounds up their purchase to the next dollar and donates that remainder amount (called a “crumb”) to their child’s team. For teams, Crumb enables team admins to set and track funding goals and manage the team’s fundraising finances from a simple dashboard view.
“We’re thrilled to be the newest SportsEngine marketplace partner. We’re excited to work with the premier youth sports app and service marketplace as we present Crumb to youth sports programs that are looking for new and more efficient ways to raise funds,” said Kristen Gocke, co-founder and executive vice-president of client relations for Crumb. “Many families struggle to keep up with the rising costs of participation and travel in youth sports. Typical fundraisers like car washes, gift card drives and restaurant nights take significant time and effort to pull off, and rarely deliver on results. Crumb uses the power of network effects to raise money through roundups on daily purchases, while also rewarding donors for their participation. Crumb requires minimal time and effort from team admins and coaches, allowing them to focus on training and development.”
“We are very excited to welcome Crumb as a SportsEngine Marketplace Partner,” stated Jody Vogelaar, Vice President, Marketing, SportsEngine. “We are always looking for innovative ways to make the lives of sports administrators, parents, and coaches easier. Crumb is a great fit for the Marketplace because it provides effortless fundraising for teams, clubs and causes, allowing more time to focus on the fun in sports.”
