How We Give Back
More than a shirt. Our mission is to promote self-confidence, prevent bullying, and inspire success amongst the teens that we serve.
Rest assured—we work hand-in-hand, day in and day out, with our giving partners to ensure that those who need it, receive it.
MatchBack curates a network of carefully vetted local and national organizations who serve a diverse population of underprivileged youth. We establish a personal relationship with our point-of-contact within each organization to ensure that MatchBack’s social mission and core values are aligned with each and every giving partner.
MatchBack’s Teens-in-Need Network currently includes: charitable mentoring organizations, foster care service providers, group homes, school administration, coaches, counselors, case managers, social workers, U.S. Military Officer organizations, Police/Sheriff departments, and other nonprofit children’s charities.
Our network is ever-expanding, as we are always searching for new opportunities to reach kids throughout the US.
All of our matched bundles arrive individually boxed, ready to be presented as a personal gift to each recipient. This method of delivery helps to distinguish MatchBacked bundles from the impersonality associated with free-for-all handouts and clothing drives. With a significance far greater than just a t-shirt or hat, each bundle gifted to a youth works to build confidence and self-worth while serving as a reminder that they are cared for.
Bundles are given in a discreet and meaningful way by an individual (counselor, coach, mentor, etc.) who has an established, trusted relationship with the child. In doing so, MatchBack believes the perceived value of the reward is elevated and, in turn, a more impactful experience is created.
MatchBack does not individually designate which youths associated with an organization will receive a bundle. By the time a giving partner within our Teens-in-Need network is entrusted with the disbursement of bundles, we have placed our trust in their judgement to make that determination—MatchBack respects that each giving partner knows how to serve their kids best.
