This non-profit was initiated by the passion and generosity of a few who volunteered their time, talent, and treasure. We started small and grew quickly by offering no-cost programs. Our funding is derived from a number of sources.
In 2019 we signed a three-year partnership with Wilson Sporting Goods – our key sponsor and partner who has generously provided us with some funding and institutional guidance.
With more awareness and a continuing outreach for more corporate partners, donors, local sponsors, and product sales, we are encouraged this will remain sustainable.
Currently, our recycling line, the PLAY IT GREEN machine, represents a net expense. Given increasing sustainability interest and our commitment to finding new partners and potential products, this is changing. The investment we have made in this new, first-of-its-kind, custom-built recycling line, holds the promise that with increased production and further product R&D, the GREEN GOLD produced may fund much of this initiative.

This benefit can now be allocated to any designated donor, person, organization or sponsor even if they are not part of your organization.
