5 Times Gold Cards Became the MVP in Sports Fundraising

Gold Cards have stood out as a unique and effective fundraising tool. But what makes these discount cards the go-to choice for numerous high school and youth sports teams? Here's an in-depth look at the allure and impact of these Golden cards & tickets.

Gold Cards have emerged as the flagship product for Gold Athletics, and their popularity is easy to understand. Not only are they compact and fit perfectly in supporters wallets, but they also offer tantalizing discounts at 20 to 25 businesses, both local and nationally recognized. Every Gold Card reflects a meaningful partnership with these businesses, guaranteeing exclusive deals for an entire year. Shout out to our Merchant team who continuously makes these partnerships happen!

Gold Cards aren’t just about the offers. They’re personalized – fronted by your team's branding and potentially its schedule, while the reverse side lists the fantastic local and national deals up for grabs. To sweeten the pot, each gold card is accompanied by six Key Tags, each spotlighting the crème de la crème of local deals. These are meticulously designed for a one-off use, unless stated otherwise. Crafted with user convenience in mind, these Key Tags easily detach and fit onto a keychain, ensuring that the best deals are never more than a supporters arm's length away.
