Working together to ensure youth sports survives and thrives after the pandemic and ensure low-income kids benefit from the power of sport
BEND, OR, March 15, 2021 – Every Kid Sports, a leading national non-profit organization that provides financial support to children of low-income families to pay sports registration fees, has announced that Stack Sports, headquartered in Plano, TX, has joined their national fundraising campaign. Stack Sports is the global leader in sports technology, including league management software.
Stack Sports is joining the Every Kid Sports national fundraising campaign and will be supporting the effort in multiple ways.

Finding ways to make sports more accessible to families is an important part of what we do every day,” said Brandon Shangraw, VP of Marketing and Innovation at Stack Sports. “Our mission to grow participation has never been more important to us than it is now and this partnership does exactly that.”
In addition, Stack Sports has joined as a communications partner of Every Kid Sports; helping to build awareness of the “We Pay. Kids Play.” campaign. Lastly, Stack Sports will continue to look for ways to integrate with Every Kid Sports and explore additional opportunities to support the effort to get more kids in the game.
