As with any non-profit organization, a percentage of funds must cover administrative costs. Side-Out works very hard to keep overhead costs as low as possible and to make sure that a minimum of 75% of all of our funds goes toward our programs and research.
Funds raised through Side-Out programs such as Dig Pink® support Side-Out's very own clinical research, The Side-Out Protocol. This aggressively funded, highly targeted research program is entirely sponsored by the volleyball community and its achievements are results are all because of the volleyball community. Furthermore, Side-Out funds college scholarships for our Side-Out Ambassadors and provide grants to patient support services organizations in localities relevant to our Dig Pink participants.
The amount of funding for each of these changes every year based on a variety of factors. For more information about how Side-Out operates click here.
