Back to Cool (er, we mean School) with Sports Basement

Support EBGIS by becoming a Basementeer! We have partnered with Sports Basement to raise funds for our school in two ways.

 

Support EBGIS by becoming a Basementeer! We have partnered with Sports Basement to raise funds for our school in two ways:

  • Sign up as a Basementeer and pay a one-time $25 fee. After that, you’ll get 10% off all purchases and EBGIS will get a portion of the purchase price every time you shop at Sports Basement.
  • Based on the number of our community members who sign up, EBGIS will receive gift cards that we can use in future fundraisers.

As you can see, the more of our community members who sign up as Basementeers, the more funds we’ll raise for our school! In addition to the 10% discount, Basementeers get other special perks from Sports Basement. It’s easy to sign up online!
