Group fundraising solution Snap! Raise announced a new partnership with Eastbay, owned by Foot Locker Inc.

Through this partnership, Snap! Raise and Eastbay will double down on the mission they share to support youth sports teams and educational programs by providing the resources they need to achieve more, all while saving valuable time and energy for coaches, educators, parents and students. Youth activities, athletics and educational programs continue to face the growing need for additional support.

Snap! Raise uses industry-leading social donation technology and expert customer care to help programs leverage the support of their communities. A substantial volume of the funds raised for youth activities, especially in the athletics segment, are put directly toward purchasing group apparel.

Eastbay provides easy accessibility to an unparalleled selection of the best performance products available from Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Under Armour and many more. Ultimately, this partnership allows both companies to align in helping schools and youth sports programs of all types meet their needs on an unprecedented scale.

“Our mission is to provide coaches and group leaders with the valuable time and resources needed to impact their students. Adding a partnership to our hands-on approach to fundraising allows us to further our ability to transform the youth activities space and to better serve our customers,” Snap! Raise, co-founder and CEO Cole Morgan said of the new partnership.

Eastbay VP of Sales & Business Development Ken West shared in Morgan’s sentiment. “Inspiring athletes and coaches is at the heart of everything we do, and partnering with Snap! Raise to leverage community support for athletic programs is a powerful and effective way for us to do just that.”

Snap! Raise and Eastbay will begin rolling out the program in Fall of 2018. Working together, the nationwide companies will provide even greater value and exclusive opportunities to athletic and activities programs across the country.
