Bloom offers product-based fundraising programs that support some of the largest youth organizations in the country including PGA Junior Golf (PGA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), 4-H and roughly 100,000 schools K-12.
MISSION: Bloom's mission is to provide highly profitable, innovative online and in-hand funding solutions for national and local community organizations.
MANAGEMENT: CEO, Pete Hexter, has been in the youth fundraising business since 2004 when he launched BRAX Fundraising as the first, officially licensed NFL fundraising company. Since then, through multiple strategic partnerships, rapid growth, and the eventual sale of that company, he started Bloom to continue supporting youth organizations nationwide.
MARKET: According to 2018 statistics, almost $3 billion per year is raised by youth organizations across the United States. This includes schools, youth sports organizations, and other youth organizations that focus on developmental skills. Money is raised, primarily by parent volunteers, through a combination of product sales, events, and donation campaigns. Bloom’s offering includes both physical product sales and an online donation platform that provides a discount club membership for anyone who donates.
