TeamSoSports.com has pledged to make a difference for sports teams, athletes and organizations that are looking for a unique, easy-to-implement method for raising much-needed funds.
As a division of SoMuchSavings.com, TeamSoSports provides solutions for team fundraisers and other sports sponsorship through a powerful online platform that provides custom-designed shopping sites that enable consumers to save money while supporting their favorite team, athlete and charitable organization.
"Fundraising is a major challenge for any charity or community organization, and that is especially true in the world of sports," said David N Capo, CEO of SoMuchSavings.com. "If a consumer is going to make a purchase anyway, they might as well save money on it and help their favorite charity, athlete or program in the process, and that is what TeamSoSports is all about."
TeamSoSports.com utilizes the "Save to Support" initiative of SoMuchSavings.com, which connects charitable organizations, causes and projects with a unique way to generate an ongoing revenue stream.
Registered charities, teams, athletes and organizations can customize their own fundraising site with information specifically about their purpose and mission. They can then direct fans, family members, friends, sponsors and other consumers to their site to shop, save, and support their organization. There is never a cost to the charitable organization and consumers are not required to register or provide any personally identifiable information.
The timing for the sports sponsorship and team fundraising solutions presented by TeamSoSports.com is ideal, because charities and other organizations have been hard-hit in recent years due to the effects of the national economic recession.
"Donor bases have been shrinking for years, and national economic conditions have hampered efforts to financially support teams, athletes and sports organizations," said Capo. "Too often, family members or close friends end up shouldering most of the burden. TeamSoSports and the SoMuchSavings Save-to-Support initiative are just a better way of generating revenue."
Amateur and community athletic programs are essential to the fabric of communities throughout the United States, but the question of how to fund those organizations is perhaps the single greatest challenge most of them face.
Depending on the sport, expenses can easily run into the thousands of dollars per year, be it for a team or even an individual. Uniforms, equipment, insurance, travel and lodging and other routine expenses run up the cost and often limit the opportunities for teams and athletes to participate.
"People have been solicited by sports fundraisers to the point of being burned out," said Capo. "Candy sales, popcorn sales, dining discount cards and other fundraising programs have had their place, but with so many kids and other solicitors knocking on their doors and asking for help, people have become increasingly resistant to the whole idea."
The opportunity presented by TeamSoSports is different, because consumers are being directed to a site where they can save money on items they would purchase anyway, and in so doing can directly help the charity, sports program or athlete that they want to support.
TeamSoSports began when Capo wanted to develop a way to help professional and amateur cycling teams and individual cyclists offset the cost of training, competing, and staging cycling tours and other events. As SoMuchSavings.com got involved with the sport of cycling, TeamSoSports became the natural outgrowth of that effort.
