Sport for Poverty

Just by making a purchase from Squad Sport you are contributing to our Sport for Poverty campaign. 5% of all sales is commited to a contestable fund which is allocated regularly to worthy local, national and international causes.

Specific products on our website also have a much higher contribution rate - keep an eye out for the Sport for Poverty badge and details for that product will be in the product information.

If you have a worthy cause that could benefit from receiving a donation please contact us and we will provide you with an application form and information. Note that the fund is specifically set up to provide a lending hand to those in need, whether it is a sports team at a low decile NZ school, or an aid organisation working in Nigeria. We will consider all applications.

Each allocation round is given an open and close date, and the amount available will also be specified. From there, applications are reviewed and rated using a scale of 50% judge's opinion (internal, here at Squad), and 50% social vote (promoted via Facebook). Depending on funds available, along with quality and quantity of the applications received, we may choose to allocate funds to several causes across one funding allocation, or none at all (with money being reallocated to the next allocation).
