Who We Support
As an organization we have chosen a handful of charitable causes that meet needs that are very close to our hearts to officially promote. These Sponsored Causes will be the focus of our fundraising and marketing efforts.
We would love to have you join us in supporting the work of these great non profits!
What We Give
We have committed to donating 40% of the purchase price of every piece of Play For More apparel and gear we sell, equally split between each of our Sponsored Causes.
Additionally at the end of every quarter we will determine a reasonable reserve amount for our operating account, the greater of: 1/3 of the previous quarter's expenses or the estimated expenses of the next month. Any amount in excess of that number will have 50% put into a growth account to help us expand to more sports and products lines and the other 50% will be divided equally between our Sponsored Causes.
Who We Choose
There are thousands of charities out there who are all doing great things to impact the world in positive ways. Unfortunately we can not support them all as an organization. To narrow down our options we identified 4 needs that we see in our world that we are the most passionate about solving.
For a charity to be considered as a Sponsored Cause they need to be a reputable Not For Profit organization whose mission works toward one or more of these goals:
The spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and expanding the Kingdom of God here on Earth
To sustainably uplift the poor
To free the oppressed and the exploited
Promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing
Why These Criteria?
Here at Play For More we are unashamedly motivated by our faith in Christ. We want to make an impact in this world and on lives of people in the greatest need here and now but all that would be for nothing if we are not also concerned about their eternal destination and neglect to share the Gospel with them. Though not a requirement, we strongly prefer to work with faith based organizations that spread the Gospel message as a part of what they do.
That being said, we also want our Sponsored Causes to be organizations that everyone can feel good about supporting whether they share our Christian convictions or not. We will always select charities that are accomplishing significant social good.
The last 3 criteria reflect the type of charitable work we want to support.
Throughout the Bible we see an consistent message that God places high value on the poor, oppressed, and hurting people in the world and calls us to help and care for them.
The organizations we support will be those that work to bring people up out of their circumstances and give them the tools provide a greater quality of life for themselves.
It is important for us that the help provided by the organizations we support are sustainable, long lasting solutions. We want to provide people in poverty and difficult life situations a "hand up" to rise above their circumstances that creates real lasting changes in their lives.
