U.S. Cellular offers virtual fundraising opportunity for local youth groups

Mar 19, 2020

For the sixth year in a row, youth-focused organizations in Maine can earn up to $1,000 through U.S. Cellular’s Community Connections program — all online.

Whether it’s a Little League baseball team, high school debate team, marching band, cheer squad or a variety of other groups, organizers can sign up their group at uscellular.com/communityconnections to earn sponsorship support without selling candy, washing cars or selling coupon books, which are all face-to-face activities.

Once registered, local nonprofit academic and athletic groups representing youth up to 12th grade have 14 days to rally friends, families and supporters to complete activities including surveys, videos and/or following U.S. Cellular on its social channels.

Each activity earns money that goes to the organization — up to $1,000 — and the website spreads the word on social media.

“We decided that in addition to sponsoring college and professional sports teams across the country, we wanted to support youth programs that provide kids here in Maine with fun and meaningful experiences everyday,” said Matt Kasper, director of sales at U.S. Cellular in New England.

“We know there are several groups in need of financial support and by investing in them we can help ensure that all kids get a fair shot to achieve their goals.”

Since launching the program in 2015, U.S. Cellular awarded $1.4 million to nearly 3,000 groups nationwide.
