GiveToLocal Partners With Basketball England

GiveToLocal has strengthened its commitment to community sport in 2021 after agreeing a new national partnership with Basketball England.

The exciting move sees us work alongside basketball’s national governing body in England to support its member clubs raise additional funds.

Basketball England was founded in 1936 and the organisation operates the English Basketball League for both men and women.

And GiveToLocal is delighted to be playing its part in helping basketball clubs look forward to a bright future in 2021 and beyond.

Stewart Kellett, CEO of Basketball England, said: “2020 was a challenging year for everyone involved with our sport and it’s important that we consider partnership opportunities that can support basketball now and in the future.

“GiveToLocal’s model is unique and offers clubs a great opportunity to develop sustainable income by becoming even more connected into their local communities. 

“It’s vitally important that our clubs, coaches, players and volunteers are supported in every way possible and this national partnership has the potential to do that.

“Basketball England is very much looking forward to working with GiveToLocal in 2021 and we’re excited about what we can achieve together this year.”

GiveToLocal’s service will be available as an exclusive additional benefit to clubs affiliated to Basketball England.

By pledging as little as £3 per month donors can directly support their community basketball clubs and, in return, receive benefits linked to local businesses.

“We’re a community-focused service that works for everyone,” said Colin Stromsoy, Director Of Strategic Partnerships at GiveToLocal.

“We’re perfectly positioned to support Basketball England’s members by raising the profile of clubs and supporting their fundraising efforts.

“I’ve spent my whole career in sport and the basketball community has a renowned reputation for its excellent work at community level. 

“We’re determined to play our part alongside Basketball England to support coaches, players, parents and volunteers to ensure their sport continues to have a bright future.

“Our partnership with Basketball England has so much potential and together with Stewart and his excellent team I can’t wait to get started.”
