SportsEngine, Inc. Expands Partnership with Team Fundraising Solution, FlipGive
SportsEngine, Inc., an NBC Sports Group company and the leading provider of Sport Relationship Management software, announced that it has expanded its partnership with FlipGive, the Toronto-based company that has reinvented how youth sports teams across North America raise money.
FlipGive has revolutionized the fundraising space by partnering with hundreds of national brands to provide cash back from purchases made through its always-on fundraising platform. Some of these include Apple, Under Armour, Walmart, Home Depot, Nike, and Buffalo Wild Wings. Instead of relying on traditional bottle drives or time-consuming candy bar and raffle ticket sales, over 35,000 teams and clubs have used FlipGive to raise $25M through everyday purchases at their favorite retailers and restaurants.

“Families invest a lot of their time and money so that their kids can have access to the sports they love and COVID-19 has placed even more of a financial strain,” said Mark Bachman, co-founder and CEO at FlipGive. “SportsEngine was a natural fit. Our missions are closely aligned, help teams and parents get back time to focus on the sports their kids love. With their reach across North America, we knew working together would deliver a meaningful impact in helping more kids join and stay in the game.”
“We are excited to grow our partnership with FlipGive to provide a real-life fundraising tool that fits the busy lives of youth sports families and volunteers, beginning with the matching grant to jumpstart our customers fundraising campaigns during a pivotal time in youth sports,” said Brett MacKinnon, General Manager, SportsEngine, Inc. “As sports return to play across the country, fundraising solutions that are easy and safe are paramount to making youth sports more accessible in all communities and part of our mission to make the lives easier for parents, coaches and team administrators.”
More than one million teams, leagues and clubs use SportsEngine to run their tournaments, leagues, online registration, websites and mobile apps. Through these applications, sports teams, clubs, leagues and national governing bodies are able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and communication, allowing them to focus more time on developing their athletes and furthering the love of sport.
