Little League®, in partnership with Sports Connect (the Official League Technology Provider of Little League), is excited to offer local chartered Little Leagues a new opportunity to raise money through a secure and cost-efficient virtual fundraising platform called Stack Raise. Virtual fundraising, also known as “crowdfunding,” is a popular way to help a local Little League raise funds to support their program, and we are pleased to provide this, easy-to-use resource as we head into the 2021 season, especially as we continue to navigate through these difficult times.
Little League programs outside of the United States may participate in this online fundraising campaign by using an independent, third–party online fundraising tool. It is up to the league or governing Little League entity to thoroughly investigate all online fundraising software to ensure that fundraising can be done safely and securely and in compliance with any applicable laws, policies, and governance for fundraising, data, and privacy compliance and communication practices.
It is important to choose a reputable service to ensure the money raised through your league’s efforts goes directly to your league in a timely manner.
Online fundraising software companies charge various fees for use of their services. Your league should evaluate all fees to determine which services offer the best product and allow the league to retain the most money raised.
Fundraising should follow any applicable Operating Policies as directed by Little League.
