About SPONSOR JAWN
SPONSOR JAWN was created by Benjamin Gibbons (BJ) in 2023 after years of volunteering and running a successful sponsorship program for Plymouth Little League (Montgomery County, PA). From working with over 90 sponsors and completing the process manually BJ knew there had to be a better way to lessen the number of volunteer hours it took to run the program while also providing a more efficient process for the sponsors. After searching for an existing solution and a few failed attempts at piecing something together, there really was nothing available that did it all, SPONSOR JAWN was created.
SPONSOR JAWN is an ode to growing up in Philly, a word loved by many locals and growing in popularity across the country. “JAWN” is Philly slang that mean literally “anything”, JAWN can be a person, place, or thing. It could be a sponsor for a t-shirt, banner, event, or even another hand to help run your program.
SPONSOR JAWN combines over 20 years of corporate experience, hundreds of volunteer hours, board member leadership, and an unrelenting desire to build a great program for community groups of any size. With technology that levels the playing field for community groups and businesses alike, SPONSOR JAWN is poised to be “the” platform everyone who has a sponsorship program uses. SPONSOR JAWN lessens the workload and allows your volunteers to spend more time on what matters for your organization, and best of all, it is free to get started!
