It can be extremely time-consuming, and the volunteers and the kids themselves are already stretched very thin. ShopForMyCause.com makes fundraising more accessible and easy - people are shopping online anyway and we believe a percentage of those sales should go towards a good cause
Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
League Sports Services LLC, a leading provider of online management services for youth sports organizations, has launched a new website that makes fundraising free, easy and successful.
The new site, ShopForMyCause.com, is an online marketplace of more than 400 well-known stores that enables organizations to earn money anytime one of their supporters makes a purchase originating from the site.
At its launch, ShopForMyCause.com is open only to users of SportsSignup, the popular online registration and league management system operated by League Sports Services. SportsSignup is a secure, affordable, and hassle-free online sports registration software that enables volunteers from soccer, baseball, lacrosse, hockey and other youth sports organizations to spend more time on the playing field than on administrative and fundraising tasks. Company officials hope to expand the fundraising service to other not-for-profit and philanthropic causes in the future.
"Fundraising is one of the biggest challenges facing not-for-profit organizations today," said League Sports Services CEO Anthony Bruno. "It can be extremely time-consuming, and the volunteers and the kids themselves are already stretched very thin. ShopForMyCause.com makes fundraising more accessible and easy - people are shopping online anyway and we believe a percentage of those sales should go towards a good cause," continued Bruno.
Here's how it works:
Eligible organizations simply register their organization with ShopForMyCause.com, which provides access to more than 400 online merchants including Walmart, Priceline.com, Best Buy, Borders and Eastbay. Organizations then encourage their members and supporters to shop using ShopForMyCause.com. Visitors to ShopForMyCause.com are asked to select which cause they are "shopping for." From there, a percentage of the proceeds from any of their purchases is given back to the specified organization. Included with the service are continuous updates via ShopForMyCause.com's Twitter Hot Deals page offering special deals to serve as a reminder you are not shopping for a good cause, but also saving money at the same time.
"ShopForMyCause.com is a supplemental or alternative fundraising effort to selling candy bars door-to-door, sitting through another bake sale or spending a Saturday washing strangers cars," Mr. Bruno said.
