Sportsgrants, Inc., a registered 501c3 organization, not only speaks the language of fund development, but the organization is very well versed in the uncommon industry dialect of profitability. The company’s mission, implemented by founder Scott Zagarino, is to turn the event fundraising world rightside up by creating, producing, and raising funds for sports and fitness events independently with little or no cost to the recipient charities.

Geographic areas served:



Sportsgrants developed "fight gone bad vii," an online fundraising event for benefiting charities. Unfortunately, this event was cancelled in 2012 due to a hostile settlement with a competing organization. The remainder of the year was spent developing an online fundraising event called "twenty-two" to be launched in 2013.

Sprotsgrants has led the way for CrossFit's fundraising and community support efforts since the inception of the Fight Gone Bad fundraiser six years ago. Scott Zagarino and his team are selfless and unstinting in their efforts to make a difference to their, and our, beneficiaries is nothing short of amazing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Scott and team have coordinated the FGB event, guided our Foundation from idea to inception, provided countless hours of assistance in every way imaginable. They are unbeatable at cutting through red tape and getting the dollars in the hands of the target, and brook no padded salaries, fancy facilities, or other cushy staff benefits along the way.

Sportsgrants has been a phenomenal resource, catalyst, and friend to the CrossFit community. They have brought a level of commitment and trust to our annual CrossFit "Fight Gone Bad" event that is simply unimaginable without their involvement. Simply put, Sportsgrants gets the job done. Minimal fuss, total dedication to the project at hand, and the ability to communicate in a real manner to real people about real things. That sounds silly, but in a world that often seems full of smoke and mirrors, the real deal is a refreshing and welcome encounter.

Sportsgrants is an team of inspired individuals focused on making the world a better place. In my experience with I have watched sportsgrants create innovative events and help give people the platform to share their struggles and victorys. Most of all, sportsgrants specialty is in opening up hearts and minds to feel real feelings and motivate people to take action. I have seen sportsgrants enable people to follow their desire and take action. I always enjoy visiting with employees of sportsgrants because I know I will leave with fresh inspiration.

This group is comprised of a beautiful balance of passion for helping others and creativity in action. They follow through with all sides of helping organize and support your event. They are easy to communicate with and make themselves readily available. I would highly recommend them as a positive partner in tying your event to a cause and/or generating fundraising dollars for your cause.

Ways to make it better...

They hadn't used the rapid ghost website and/or let the Crossfit organization be in charge of the logistics of the event nationally

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
