Fundraising Solution Empowers Athletic Programs to Manage Campaigns, Visibility, and Fund Distribution

January 18, 2022 - PrestoSports, the leading all-in-one sports technology platform in college and high school athletics, today announced the launch of PrestoRaise, a fundraising solution designed to support the funding needs of athletic programs. As schools and teams at every level continue to recover from the impact of COVID-19 on the 2020 and 2021 seasons, athletic programs are seeking new and creative ways to generate revenue. Free to use, the PrestoRaise fan-funding platform lightens the load for department staff and streamlines the ability for organizations to reach and activate their communities.


"Athletics programs are seeking new ways to engage their communities in fundraising efforts," said Keith Womack, President of PrestoSports. "As we continue to expand our all-inclusive platform for athletics programs, we are committed to providing solutions that meet the specific funding needs of each school, sport, and athlete.”


Developed to be completely customized to a program’s unique needs and remove any hurdles to getting started, the PrestoRaise platform supports fundraising efforts with multi-channel tools like branded websites, hosting services, social media graphics, email, and the administration of donations through a secure online platform distributed directly into a programs bank account.  Additionally, programs also have the power to control their funding payouts. Not restricted to the payout preferences of other funding tools, PrestoRaise allows fundraising administrators to receive access to their funds immediately, at the end of a campaign, or monthly if they choose.


Programs also have the ability to control permissions and visibility into their fundraising performance. For example, a superintendent of a district can view performance for all schools, a principal can view results for their school, and a coach can view the results for their athletes. Athletic programs can sign-up now and launch their fundraising campaigns for free by using this link.
