What is Our Mission:
Our mission is to support health, exercise and play for all. We achieve this goal by selling as much East Bay Athletic Club branded gear as possible! Each year we choose one sports/play/wellness focused organization to partner with and 100% of profits raised through apparel sales during that year are then donated to the selected cause.
Why this Mission is Important:
There are many reasons, here are a few of the most important:
“Pay to Play” club sports is now the norm, and cost to play is well beyond what many families can afford
Public school athletic programs are forever at risk due to lack of funding, especially girls sports
Organizations who offer free or affordable sports/play/wellness programming need all the help they can get
Organizations that provide opportunities for kids with mental and physical disabilities to play also need support
Which Types of Groups does EBAC Usually Support:
Besides getting some cool new threads, we understand it is also important to know where else your money is going. We look for youth sport based non-profits who have made it their mission to provide opportunities for boys and girls to play who might otherwise not have the chance, especially those which offer not just the playing experience, but also provide other support structures such as academic mentoring, health/nutrition guidance and cultural enrichment. We also look for public school sports programs that are at risk due to lack of funding. If your organization or school fits this description, please reach out to us.
