SALT LAKE CITY — RallyMe.com, the leader in sports crowdfunding, and US Lacrosse, the national governing body of lacrosse, have announced a partnership to provide state-of-the-art fundraising opportunities for the US Lacrosse Foundation, the organization’s philanthropic arm.

“We’re excited to assist US Lacrosse and the US Lacrosse Foundation in their mission to provide programs and services that grow participation in this exciting sport,” said Bill Kerig, founder and CEO of RallyMe.

The US Lacrosse’s crowdfunding partnership with RallyMe will generate support for US Lacrosse and augment its resources to serve the sport.

“A successful crowdfunding platform to engage our national community in generating support for US Lacrosse’s mission and priorities is critical in today’s world. We feel RallyMe is best positioned to work with the US Lacrosse Foundation, and we look forward to what we can accomplish together,” said Susie Chase, vice president of the US Lacrosse Foundation.

The US Lacrosse Foundation kicked off the partnership with the launch of an exciting fundraising campaign for the U.S. Men’s National Under-19 Team. The goal is to raise $40,000 in 30 days as the team prepares to go head-to-head against Canada’s National Under-19 Team on Jan. 9, 2016. Nearly $10,000 has already been raised.

The U.S. men’s U19 team campaign is hosted on USLacrosse.RallyMe.com, the new online funding platform for the US Lacrosse Foundation.
