Hey, OMHA Parents! Paying for Hockey Just Got Easier

Aug 25 2021

It’s finally time to ditch the old, traditional methods of fundraising and raise with FlipGive, the easy-to-use cashback app for teams!

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

Finding ways to offset the cost of sports through fundraising and sponsorship are on the minds of sports parents across the country. Quite often, teams turn to selling chocolate bars or hosting car washes and bottle drives to help keep their children competing in hockey. 

We’ve all been there, and it isn’t fun.

Thankfully, it’s finally time to ditch the old, traditional methods of fundraising. There’s now a way that you can earn more than you ever have to use towards quality equipment and all of the other costs that come with youth sports including travel to tournaments and events.  

This is where we come in. FlipGive is an easy-to-use cashback app for teams, designed to help hockey parents lower the cost to play by shopping for the things they’re already buying from over 700 top brands. Cashback from groceries, gas, dining, gear, travel, and more reduces your fees, ensuring no family has to choose between sports, their budget, and their time.

That’s right, funding your team just got way easier.

FlipGive Will Match the First $100 You Earn!

It's a well known fact that COVID-19 has sidelined young athletes across Canada. For that reason, helping kids get back in the game has never been so important. That’s why Home Hardware has partnered with FlipGive to donate $25,000 in matching grants to teams ready to make a comeback. When you raise $100 on FlipGive, we’ll provide a $100 Return to Sport Matching Grant.
