Steiner Sports has launched a program aimed at selling products while raising money for charities and civic-minded groups.
Steiner will offer items at a 15% discount through BuyForACause.com. The company will also donate 20% of every purchase to the participating non-profit organizations. When the group’s followers visit the website, they click on their favorite charity’s logo and a virtual Steiner Sports memorabilia store opens featuring sports and entertainment collectibles that are available for purchase. Since there is no auction involved, whatever a shopper wishes to buy becomes theirs.
“A total of 19 organizations have already joined BuyForACause.com,” reports Ed Schauder, EVP of Licensing & General Counsel at Steiner. “We set out to develop a charitable model where we would donate money to non-profits at no cost or risk to them and, at the same time, offer their supporters valuable memorabilia items at a special charity price. We see it as a win-win-win proposition.”
Non-profit organizations that are interested in becoming a member organization should contact Andrew at Steiner Sports at [email protected]
