Check-in for Good and Bonzi Team up to Eliminate the Stress of Fundraising for Organized Sports

The partnership will allow any of Bonzi's 2 million users to launch a free Check-in for Good campaign and use the digital technology to fundraise for their sport's organization

TUALATIN, Ore., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Check-in for Good, a digital crowd funding and location based advertising application, announced today it will partner with Bonzi, an online management and registration software for youth and adult sports leagues. The integration of Check-in for Good to the Bonzi platform will give sports organizations a simple way to raise money digitally, along with valuable resources to jump-start their fundraising campaigns. Users will have the ability to set up a team page at checkinforgood.com/bonzi where they can collect donations through a widget on their team desktop and instantly share their campaign through their social networks.

"It is no secret that raising money can be an area of stress for organizations and the athletes who play organized sports," said Amy Pate CEO of Bonzi Technology. "As Bonzi continues to grow, we are constantly on the lookout for new and innovative technology and services that help our clients remove barriers to participation and contribute to their success. This partnership with Check-in for Good is an important step in establishing a platform that serves the needs of the sports community, one of those being fundraising."

Beginning today, Bonzi clients can create a campaign page, paste their campaign URL directly onto their private and public team sites in their Bonzi portal and use the platform as a way to drive donations.

"I have three boys who all play in organized sports leagues, so I know the financial responsibility that it requires to participate in these organizations," said Check-in for Good  co-founder and CEO Rob Katz. "This partnership was constructed as a way to eliminate the hassle of raising money so that Bonzi clients can simply enjoy their sport."
