Pottsgrove Baseball Crowd-Raising Funds for Its Season
LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – The generosity of dozens of donors has helped the Pottsgrove High School baseball team so far raise more than 75 percent of a $5,000 crowd-funded goal that will enable it “to run a competitive high school program,” it said.
The effort is being conducted on Snap! Raise, a web platform that calls itself a national “fund-raising solution for youth athletics and club programs.” Its “Pottsgrove HS Baseball 2022” page, available here, has collected $3,775 in donations since its start last Monday (March 28, 2022). There’s only $1,225 left to go, which the team hopes to receive by the campaign’s scheduled April 25 end.
The money, it said, “will be used towards renting practice facilities, new uniforms, new equipment (a team shed), and our team banquet.”
The group has publicly thanked its “Pottsgrove Baseball family” for contributions already offered. “Your support has meant everything to our team,” it added. “This season, we feel like we have a mature and prepared group, with several young players and returners ready to make an impact on our team. We appreciate any donations we receive.”
Donations are suggested at levels of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50, and $35, as well as any customized amount. More than 60 supporters have donated so far, with amounts generally ranging from $20 to $100.
Snap! Raise, based in Seattle WA, claims to have served more than 89,000 similar fund-raisers across all 50 states. The firm accounts for more than $500 million in 8.9 million donations made since 2014, it said.
Falcons’ were scheduled for six games between March 18 and Friday (April 1) against Kennett, Oley Valley, Upper Moreland, Exeter, Phoenixville, and Kutztown. They play today (Monday. April 4) at 4 p.m. in an away game against Upper Merion Area High School, according to team on the Pottsgrove Athletics webpages.
