It takes a village: Building a High School Fundraising App

Building the Gold Athletics app to what it is today has required more than just technical coding skills. It takes a village. Our team works tirelessly on a journey of vision, unity, community engagement, and relentless determination. Today, we are sharing what we’ve created with you. 

We're proud of what we've achieved with the Gold Athletics App, and we're grateful for the trust you've placed in us to empower coaches and deliver consistent results.

The Development Journey: "It takes a village..."

This saying perfectly captures the essence of the Gold Athletics’ app development process. It's been a non-stop endeavor, fueled by our team's dedication to making the GAApp as user-friendly as possible, while taking feedback from our Coaches at critical times during countless fundraisers. Over three years and five development phases, we've evolved without a CTO, strengthening our team cohesion and resolve.
