Boosterville’s CEO, Pam Cooper, and Director of Operations, Emily Blyze, were featured on this segment with Scott Jones of FOX59 News. Also featured were Gavin Baugh, owner of 4 local HotBox Pizza franchises and Rick Owens, Coach of the North Central High School Softball Team.
Here is the article written by Jones along with a video explaining how local nonprofits are working with Boosterville to raise money and local businesses are working with Boosterville to drive increased sales. The article was originally posted August 24th, 2017 and an excerpt of Jone’s article is shown below:
Most people remember selling magazines or candy at one point in their life to raise money for a local program or sports team. It can be time consuming and often times much of the money doesn’t go toward your goal, charity or team.
But, there’s a local program that’s aiming to change that. It’s called Boosterville. It’s a fundraising program that connects cause driven buyers with businesses to raise funds for their favorite non-profit. Those non-profits include things like school teams.
“We’re trying to collect money and order products, so we’re sending girls out door to door, which is not a good, good idea,” said Rick Owens with North Central varsity softball.
Owens say it’s time consuming and they often spend far more time fund raising than they should. That’s when a parent told him about Boosterville, which is home based in Zionsville.
“We found we are often selling $50,000 worth of stuff to raise $20,000 for the school. So we said, let’s just put some technology around this ancient solution and get money directly into the kids hands,” said Pam Cooper, CEO Boosterville.
“It’s a really easy way for us to donate to different organizations and people get to pick what they are interested in. It just makes you feel really great to give back and do it in such a simple say,” said Gavin Baugh, who owns a Hotbox franchise. Read the full article here.
