TORONTO, Nov. 01 /CSRwire/ - FlipGive is collaborating with Scotiabank to power the new Scotiabank Hockey Club Fundraising Tool for the 2017/18 season.

FlipGive is a cash back site for youth sports teams that facilitates fundraising through online shopping. It focuses on helping parents manage the cost of sports by providing a fast, easy, and free fundraising solution that is powered by online shopping.

“Recently Scotiabank reached the important milestone of supporting one million kids and counting through our commitment to kids’ community hockey,” says Jacquie Ryan, Vice President, Sponsorship & Philanthropy at Scotiabank. “As we head into our 10th year of the program, we looked outside of traditional donations for a solution to help make hockey more accessible across the country. We are excited by the opportunity to extend our reach to kids’ community hockey teams across Canada with the FlipGive Platform.”

To extend their support of kids’ community hockey, Scotiabank is contributing up to an additional $50,000 in sponsorship to the first 500 qualifying teams that register on ScotiabankHockeyClub.FlipGive.com. Teams can apply for a $100 Matching Grant to help them get their season off to a great start.

The average cost for a child to participate in hockey is $1,455, not including specialized workshops or team travel. In a survey conducted by FlipGive, 47 per cent of parents spend 10-25 per cent of their monthly budget on their child’s athletics, and 80 per cent said they are stressed out about the cost of their child’s sports.

“By working with FlipGive, organizations benefit from a cloud-based solution that provides best-in-class fundraising tools to their communities,” says Mark Bachman, CEO at FlipGive.

Registered teams are provided with a team page that connects them to over 500 retailers, and every purchase made through the site generates cash back for the team. Since its launch in 2014, FlipGive has already helped raise over $10 million for groups and teams.
