"All Volleyball Serves" is a core philosophy and the philanthropic extension of our company. We have been richly blessed by God so we donate a portion of our profits to organizations and events that serve others.
We serve our wonderful customers. We serve our dedicated team members. And in 2013, we officially launched All Volleyball Serves, a philanthropic extension of our company that seeks to serve others in and outside the volleyball community. We're just getting started, but we feel convinced God is leading us in a direction to make a big difference!
All Volleyball Serves Mission Statement:
WE BELIEVE that donating our time, talents and resources through acts of charity and volunteerism is an important part of our business values. Thus, our philanthropy group was born and named All Volleyball Serves. By helping others, through the game of volleyball and beyond, we better our community on and off the court, as well as boost camaraderie among our Team Members.
Below are a few of our early initiatives:
This year our donations will help support the Side-Out Foundation's Dig Pink® efforts. This choice was made after careful consideration, feedback and requests from many of our loyal customers, who we call friends.

About the Side-Out Foundation – The Side-Out Foundation centers on supporting, educating and helping breast cancer patients and their families during the fight, while teaming up with the volleyball world to do it. Established in 2004, the Sideout Foundation has made positive differences in the lives of those with breast cancer, helping them take control of their lives – just like a team would gain control of the serve during a sideout rally!
DIG it! – The goal of DIG it! is to inspire young urban girls to lead healthy, confident lives through an after-school program that combines an activity-centered curriculum with volleyball instruction. Many urban schools lack quality after-school programming for young, growing girls due to many obstacles that are out of their control. These girls (like many growing up!) need a place to foster learning experiences to create happy, healthy habits. Read more about our involvement in a recent blog post.
Welfare Association Annual Memorial Golf Tournament – The Welfare Association is a non-profit organization which acts as a support alliance for members and their families in times of need. All employees are members of the Welfare Association, by virtue of their employment with the Department.
