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."
